I thank you for all you are doing in a difficult time. You have made such a difference to my daughter. So important for our children to talk at the moment. Our children are suffering inside just as much if not more than us adults but don't know how to tell us. Well done! https://t.co/VXsbXEMvyl

As well as delivering live lessons, we launched a ‘Tokyo-Trek Challenge’ this week, encouraging pupils to stay active during this lockdown... Off to a good start over past 5 days!!! Pupils putting us teachers to shame, haha! https://t.co/VrfJ6KlGFg

Got the balance right with the students in Live lessons, broken up by a period of no screen time to chat and hydrate, lunch time to refuel and a period at the end to discuss the day and clean down our areas. How quickly a routine can be embedded!

Later than normal as did not wake up until 9.00, mentally tired! But nothing like the Saturday morning Parker house disco to get me going. A great workout with the 'Cha Cha Slide' (I'll spare you the video :) ) This is the best part of my week! https://t.co/NFvcQI9d6s

Students are growing by the day. Live lessons; focused, interacting and time made for more chat on diversity, able to talk two other languages, being a twin, having dyslexia and the yearn to travel to see the Statue of Liberty and pyramids of Giza

Another good day with keyworkers with core subject covered together with a discussion on diversity. Shared their interests from golf to the Isle of Man TT and their coping strategies from walking, taking in surroundings to listening to The Beatles

Had a front seat watching this just now. Wonderful creatures; resilient, family orientated, and definitely worthy of being my favourite animal. Beautiful! https://t.co/hCCpXq2BrY

Oh it's Saturday, so Parker disco time. This week is more like a service with a mixture of Christmas carols and songs. A good old bellow, good for the lungs and heart. Each one that comes on is my favourite. Feel free to join in!

Just a few more to wait for, judging Tuesday. Out of all the memories I have made this beats them all. Purely because this shows that students work along side staff and strive to succeed despite all the hurdles that we have had to get over. https://t.co/ZlBWOwY39S
