Why the best teachers should be in reception classes
Why the best teachers should be in reception classes
Primary schools should consider putting their best teachers into Reception classes according to researchers at Durham University, who found that children who were taught well in their first year went on to achieve better GCSE results in English and Maths. The study of 40,000 children in England provides evidence that a boost in development from an effective first year of school remains with children right through to the end of compulsory education at age 16.

Mistletoe and (a large) wine: seven-fold increase in wine glass size over 300 years
Mistletoe and (a large) wine: seven-fold increase in wine glass size over 300 years
Our Georgian and Victorian ancestors probably celebrated Christmas with more modest wine consumption than we do today - if the size of their wine glasses are anything to go by. Researchers at the University of Cambridge have found that the capacity of wine glasses has increased seven-fold over the past 300 years, and most steeply in the last two decades as wine consumption rose.
