I can feel a few theorists turning in their grave!!!!!!!
Children's learning without play? Name one theory that does not embrace it?
We will be the only country where children learn strapped in chairs....

I understand the new qualification will include neuroscience...the penny has dropped at the DfE...has Truss et all realised that no play means the brain does not fully develop? Is she teaching us to suck eggs?
