Varjak Paw – Live Stream, Weekdays 6.30pm

I’ve had the permission of the amazing S.F. Said and his lovely agent to live stream a chapter a day of one of the best kids books ever written, Varjak Paw.

I’m adding this to my YouTube channel and will be live Monday to Friday at 6.30pm (after each live session, the video should turn into a standard youtube video so you can catch up if you miss one).

I’ve also made an activity booklet (because that’s what us primary teachers do!) for free download, to capture imagination and reinforce memory and engagement, or simply for fun! It’s on Phil Wickins TES Resources.

So Chapter 1 will be broadcast at 6.30pm Monday 23rd March 2020, you can tune in on Mr Wickins Reads – Varjak Paw.

If you want more detail, have a look at my teaser/test broadcast

(Please note: Chapter one will DEFINITELY be on Monday at 6.30pm. Also, that while I mention commenting, comments will be disabled due to the fact that my channel is for kids and therefore comments are disabled by YouTube).

Online Computing Training – with bursary

Hello primary teachers! During this time of remote learning, I’d like to offer you the opportunity to take part in live online CPD. If this is the first NCCE course for your school, your school will receive a bursary of £220. The course itself costs £35, but rather than invoicing you, the NCCE will simply pay your school £185 on completion of the course. This is available for ANY STATE SCHOOL IN ENGLAND.

Book on now! I will be delivering the courses below, please ensure you have signed up with first.

You can complete this CPD from home or from school, but to ensure the bursary, please check that you are the only teacher from your school on the course.
