Yes, Yes, Yes …

The BBC today reports the Cambridge Primary Review.

There are many good bits and this fills me with hope: Children should not start formal learning until they are six, a review of primary education in England says. Instead the kind of play-based learning featured in nurseries and reception classes should go on for another year.

So a big YES, YES, YES from me !! At last … but will politics get in the way of educational sesnse?
