Primary Magazine Issue 63Edith Cavell by Robert Scarth (adapted), some rights reserved
Welcome to Issue 63 of the Primary Magazine. In this issue, The Art of Mathematics features the Brazilian artist Mira Schendel, and in A Little Bit of History we feature Edith Cavell. Focus On... has the second in our series on mathematics outside the classroom, and Maths to Share looks at the use of spreadsheets.


Editor's extras
In Editor’s Extras we have news of a new mathematics vocabulary book, an update on the development of the Maths Hubs programme, a couple of suggestions for conferences later in the summer term, and some interesting (to some people anyway) maths facts!
The Art of Mathematics
The Art of Mathematics explores the life and work of the artist Mira Schendel who was a Brazilian artist best-known for her drawings on rice paper, but who was also a painter and sculptor. If you have an artist that you would like us to feature, please let us know.
Focus on...
In this issue we have the second in our series of articles on mathematics outside the classroom for EYFS, KS1 and KS2. In this issue we share an article about making links with mathematics and PE – both inside and outside! If you have anything that you would like to share, please let us know.
A little bit of history
In this, the second in our series on some of the history topics that are suggested in the national curriculum, we feature Edith Cavell, famous for her work protecting soldiers in the First World War. 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 use of spreadsheets as a teaching and learning tool through an article by Gina Cohen of Sunbird Advisers. If you have areas of mathematics that you would like to see featured please let us know.
