All the sport we do is always really fun and exciting!!!!!!
The Independent: Richard Garner 2011
“Ministers have ploughed millions of pounds into trying to solve the problem of boys’ writing and reading standards, creating a “boys into books” scheme which introduced more fact-based books for boys to read in the classroom and a “reading champions” programme in which Premier League footballers spoke about their favourite books. Neither, though, seem to have had as big an effect as the opportunity to blog at Heathfield primary school.”
