The MA offers a variety of support for primary teachers and primary schools. We have a dedicated primary journal, offering a mixture of theory and practice, as well as ideas for instant classroom use. The Primary Mathematics Challenge, a fabulous resource for extending able children and developing problem solving skills with pupils in Y5 and Y6 and the First Mathematics Challenge for Y3 and Y4.
