I have spent many years in the classroom utterly surprised by the lack of common facts children seem to remember. I have repeatedly listened to the debate ‘should schools cover common facts or should parents be responsible for teaching these?’

Whatever your opinion is, every child should know how many days there are in a fortnight; or what a 6 sided shape is called.

Let’s put the debate behind us and all make sure that such common and arguably important facts are continually taught but more importantly retained by our children.
