Oddly citizenship is not featured in Ks1/2 2014 curriculum , but in many cases is the only place where children learn values #ukedchat

@Ebl_association true – but even boarding schools are NOT family substitutes – families must not shirk their responsibilities #UKedchat

#UKedchat totally proud. Nothing beats that click moment when a child finally ‘gets it’. There is nothing else I’d rather be doing.

Agree about need to perform Shakespeare, always loved it at school but it never truly came alive till I saw it performed as adult #ukedchat
