Primary Magazine Issue 87
Welcome to another issue of our Primary Magazine, which lands electronically on your desks just when Year Six are embarking on their National Curriculum tests. May we wish them all the very best, and pay tribute to all the teachers, over the last six years who’ve got them to this stage of their school journey. Meanwhile Issue 87 of our magazine offers a varied collection of articles related to maths education and mathematics professional development - all of which are available in the Primary Magazine Archive. This month we have slightly reorganised the magazine, introducing two new sections: Digging Deeper and Aspects of…


In Digging Deeper each month we will explore an element of mathematics teaching linked to current developments and research: in this issue we look at ideas around planning.

Aspects of… will provide a number of bitesize ideas related to a specific element of mathematics: this month the topic is using understanding of cardinal value.

We continue with our Seen and Heard feature, which provides a specific example of a child’s response to mathematics in a classroom to stimulate thinking and provoke questions about how you would react to similar events in your own classroom. In this issue we consider understanding of the place value of decimal numbers.

If you have a photograph or an account of a classroom conversation that might stimulate similar thought, please email it to us. If we publish your suggestion, we’ll put a £20 voucher in the post.

Next month we will have articles focused on learning table facts and understanding of place value. But first, as always, 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.
