At school today I was busy admiring some of the work on the wall. The kids (year 2) had been working on important buildings, and one particular one on Buckingham Palace caught my eye. It went something like "*Buckingham Palace*is the official London <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London> residence of the British monarch <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_monarch>.<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buckingham_Palace#cite_note-0>Located in the City of Westminster <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_of_Westminster>, the palace <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palace> is a setting for state occasions and royal hospitality, and a major tourist attraction." (With the bolded text, and blue linked words, and the little 1 in superscript). Is blatant plagiarism really the sort of thing that should be displayed as "best" work on a primary classroom wall? Wikipedia is a great resource I think - as long as you know how to use it properly. If Wikipedia is to become a part of primary school life, those using it ought to be trained to use it properly.
