    On Radio four the other morning I heard somebody who had done some research into the origin of the three Rs - reading, wtiting & arithmatic. He had found that they were, originally reading, wroughting (as in wrought iron) and arithmatic, placing making things at the centre of the curriculum. Should we be campaigning for a return to this, given Michael Gove's love of traditional education?
