There’s no reason why anyone should have noticed, but this is the first post for quite a while. There’s nothing sinister about that; it was basically just work pressures and hobby stuff had to take a back seat.
But something funny’s been happening – some people have clearly decided they quite like the idea of a silent blog, so that new readers have appeared, and earlier this week the biggest ever number of readers gave a totally new look to the statistics.
So a big welcome to one and all. The About page tells you a bit more about me, but this is basically a blog about the teaching of mathematics to children of primary age. There are oodles of terrific maths blogs by secondary teachers, and a good few about general primary education, but there very seem to be very few whose focus is primary maths – so if you know of more I’d love to hear about them.
And my idea of a blog is that it’s an individual and personal thing, perhaps quirky, and as unique as you can get it. I asked someone who I greatly respect to take a look at it. “What an engaging blog”, she said. That’ll do for me; “Engaging” suits me just fine, and I hope you find it engaging as well.
