Welcome to Issue 61 of the Primary Magazine. In this issue, The Art of Mathematics features the French artist Edgar Degas. In A Little Bit of History, the final article in our series on classroom equipment looks at paper. Focus On... features Film in Education's London Primary School Silent Film Festival, and Maths to Share looks at division.


Editor's extras
In Editor’s Extras we have a reminder of the NCETM PD Lead Support events, the expanding NCETM suite of videos to support the implementation of the new primary curriculum, the National Curriculum Resource Tool, which is growing all the time - and the answer to how the Russian lady could have had so many babies!
The Art of Mathematics
In this issue we explore the life and work of the French artist Edgar Degas, famous for his paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings. He is probably best known for his paintings of ballet dancers. If you have an artist that you would like us to feature, please let us know.
Focus on...
In this issue we have information about the Film in Education’s London Primary School Silent Film Festival. If you have anything that you would like to share, please let us know.
A little bit of history
This is the last article in our series about classroom equipment. In this issue we look at something most of us use in one way or another on a daily basis - paper. If you have any history topics that you would like us to make mathematical links to, please let us know.
Maths to share - CPD for your school
In Maths to Share we look at the development of the formal written method for division to ensure conceptual understanding and the importance of encouraging children to look at calculations and make decisions on the most efficient methods to use to solve them. If you have areas of mathematics that you would like to see featured please let us know.
