Primary Magazine Issue 65'My Castel' by Damian Gadal (adapted), some rights reserved
Welcome to another edition of our new-look and more compact Primary Magazine. This magazine has been serving primary practitioners for 64 editions with a varied collection of different articles related to maths education and mathematics professional development. We hope you like the new sections - and don’t forget that all previous editions of the magazine are accessible through our Primary Magazine Archive.


In this edition we have a selection of interesting and useful articles. New National Curriculum in Focus is dedicated to unpicking the new curriculum and how to understand and develop the requirements of the new programmes of study. In this edition we begin with a focus on Algebra in KS2, exploring what this means in Y3-Y5 and not just where it is a specific requirement in Y6.

Where’s the Maths in That? shares ideas for ensuring that mathematics is taught and experienced across the curriculum. in the coming months, this series of articles will explore opportunities for mathematics and mathematical thinking within the new science programme of study. In this edition we explore Everyday Materials for Y1.

Finally, Maths in the Staff Room provides a simple plan for CPD meetings in your school to be led by a member of your staff. These are short meetings that can be used exactly as indicated, or adapted to meet the CPD needs of the school. Editable resources are supplied to enable flexibility of ‘delivery’. In this edition we focus on Progression in Problem Solving.

But first, we have a News section, bringing news from the NCETM and beyond to keep you up to date with the fast-changing world of mathematics education.
