(BBC News) Call for lessons to begin at six…

Children should not start formal learning until they are six, a review of primary education in England says.
Instead the kind of play-based learning featured in nurseries and reception classes should go on for another year, the Cambridge Primary Review says.

There is no evidence that an early introduction to formal learning has any benefit, the review says, but there are suggestions it can do some harm.

This would be of particular benefit to children from disadvantaged backgrounds and those with speech and language delays, she added.
