I started a thread this morning that I thought would generate some interest. It didn't, so I'll paste and post it on here instead since I think it's important and am surprised that others don't also find it so. Does anyone else believe, as I do, that all the time we spend with infants and lower juniors telling them about the above would be better spent just telling them many more of the stories themselves? I sometimes think I'll scream the next time I read the phrase`features of. This is heresy at the moment but I predict that, sometime in the next few years, the advisors and experts will realise that what I say is true [blindingly obvious, actually] and crow over their wonderful discovery. I posted this on Primary but thought that it might be of interest to people who post on English as well.
