Primary Magazine Issue 101'Daffodils' by Martin Vorel(adapted), in the public domain

Squeezed precariously in the short space between half-term and the Easter holidays, we bring you the fourth edition of the Primary Magazine this school year. In this issue, we hear from teachers devising ways to ways to work with ‘rapid graspers’ – the children who ‘get it’ quickly – within a teaching for mastery approach, and we suggest some meaty (maths) reads, recommended as inspiring by teachers in our most recent podcast.

Don't forget: all previous issues are available in the Archive.
