Letter: In Brief

Sir: Yes, we have got rid of the inkwells - thank goodness, what a mess! - But Sue Arnold (comment, 6 March)has got the rest wrong.Ceire, my chalk monitor, is very good at her job keeping up the stocks and throwing away the ends. However, twice a week, she and the rest of my 30 eight- to nine-year-olds do a mental arithmetic test and every day includes a mental maths activity. And - yes - we still have PE and drama and football sessions after school.
