I have just read the press release from Nick Gibb Schools minister and I have to say that there is one bit in it I really approve of ( I know, I know) and that is this bit: a good grounding in general knowledge.
I think kids love facts and love to soak them up … it doesn’t matter about the context … kids just like to know things and to show that they know them. Wonderful, exciting, Wow !!!
Have to say though that the rest of it as far as primary is concerned is a ‘wait and see’.
