Do you teach in a primary school?

Then don't just read Primary Mathematics - write for it!

The Editors are keen to include articles, short or long, from practising teachers. Every teacher has examples of things that went well in the classroom which could be shared with colleagues. If you have an idea, please contact the Editors and they will be happy to give any help you need to get it into publishable form. They are also keen to receive news of local events for inclusion.
