Primary Magazine - Issue 89

Primary Magazine Issue 89'Roman numeral dice' by James Bowe (adapted), some rights reserved
Welcome to another issue of our Primary Magazine, which has now been serving primary teachers for 89 issues with a varied collection of articles related to maths education and mathematics professional development - all of which are available in the Primary Magazine Archive.


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 journal writing in mathematics, and hear from a school where they’ve moved to exercise books with blank (not squared) pages to help children think, write and draw about their own learning.

Aspects of… provides a number of bitesize ideas related to a specific element of mathematics; this month: aspects of assessment and marking.

Seen and Heard 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 relationship between 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 what can be learnt from the end of KS1 and KS2 tests papers and preparing for Y6. 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.
