    Not quite sure where to put this so thought where better than amongst the people that make resources :)

    I found this article very interesting:

    Now, I think the work they do is incredible. However, as a primary teacher it sticks out that these sort of groups are all secondary teachers. While it is great that they are sharing resources for one another, it made me question why we don't have similar groups for primary education, baring in mind we are teaching a wide range of subjects with varying confidence levels. Surely it would make sense to have primary led groups who could identify top quality resources for staff to aid them in areas they are less confident?

    Just wondering if people agree that there is need for something like this? Is it something people would be interested in doing?

    They haven't found, rated and reviewed any of my primary maths resources (certainly not premium ones), Kris. And I have well over 100! It is a shame that no one on the panel is Primary focused.

    I think it's a real key absence to not have people involved in primary maths on the panel when they are surely required much more than secondary.

    I for one would love to go through identifying resources for primary teachers to help develop maths in classrooms and schools.

    Hi krisgreg - thanks for the feedback. I'll let the TES Maths panel leader know. It might be case of adding some Primary staff, or having a separate group completely.

    Any more suggestions welcomed :)
