Primary Magazine Issue 75'Red and White' by Vassilis (adapted), some rights reserved
Welcome to another issue of our Primary Magazine. This magazine has been serving primary teachers for 74 issues with a varied collection of articles related to maths education and mathematics professional development - all of which are accessible through the Primary Magazine Archive.


In each issue 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. This edition focuses on a new series of articles exploring how to design learning for column subtraction.

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. This month the theme is Electricity for Y4 and Y6.

Finally, Maths in the Staff Room provides simple plans for CPD meetings in your school to be led by a member of staff. These are short meetings that can be used exactly as indicated or adapted to meet the CPD needs of the school. We begin a series focusing on the features of great teaching in the context of maths which was explored in full in Issue 73. In this issue we explore Classroom Climate.

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.

The basic interactive whiteboard tools will enable a teacher to move the counters on her screen but visualizers can be used with the teacher movin the counters while the children perform the same with the concrete materials.

Thank you... is there a smartboard or interactive programme out there that will let you 'move' the counters in your diagrams?
