    Baby we were Born to Run
    Baby we were born to run. Never was a truer word sung. Children often seem utterly incapable of walking. Why dawdle to the park when you can sprint? Why amble to the ice cream van when you can hurtle?

    Kids are natural fast movers and love to race – just watch the reception class at sports day. If they’re not focused on the finish line, they’re lapping up the crowd’s cheers as they showboat along at the rear of the pack.

    • School Shoes - the BIG debate

      We’re happy to let boys be boys. In fact, we’re happy to let them be explorers, scientists and sportsmen. And we’ll buy them T-shirts which proclaim it and pick out a pair of kick-around shoes to enable it.

      But it’s different for girls. Apparently girls should be girlie. The unavoidable division starts from the very moment they emerge into the world, even though they scream with the same voice. Boys are put in blue and laced up in trainers. Girls are gussied up in pink with ballet shoes.

      But hang on. This is the 21st Century.

    • The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth

      Tech camps are here. They aim to turn that powerful, heads-down, finger-flicking obsession with technology into something massively creative. These camps - which teach kids programming, engineering and design - are a way of creating new worlds, rewriting the rules and maybe even learning how to change the real world.
