Has the dinner table had its day?

Mark hears from a school where half the pupils don't have a dining table at home.

What happened during your most memorable school lesson?

Gone are the days of three square meals a day, all eaten around a table. Mark hears from a school where half the pupils don't have a dining table at home. But does it matter?

Ettiquette expert Jean Broke-Smith thinks so! Mark debates the issue with children's cookery author Annabel Karmel, and working mum-of-four Mandy Garner, who says it's time we cut mothers some slack.

The bride was wearing white, the groom looked smart, and the big day took months of organising, but the happy couple weren't old enough to enjoy a glass of champagne!

A primary school in York held a mock wedding to teach the children about people, places and parties. It's not a day the pupils will forget in a hurry.

Mark asks for your recollections of your most memorable lesson. He speaks to one of the pupils from Jamie Oliver's Dream School and a teacher in Wales whose lessons have gone viral.

BBC Introducing tracks from Midlands band Boat to Row, and 14-year-old Rosie Shaw from Wallingford, Oxfordshire.
