Week #10 ’18

Sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry!

You must have wondered what was going on last week with the newsletters! I moved from a free to a paid version which should have meant fewer glitches but it took time to embed. Please check your spam / trash / projects & anywhere else it might be. It is being sent from Julia Skinner so do make sure you see this week’s which has something special in it!


Do you have a prompt idea?

Do let me have any ideas you or your students might have for possible prompt. On #100wcCHAT this week, we agreed that using celebrations and events from across the world. If you are not based in the UK and have some unusual celebrations that the rest of the world does not have, let me know about it and I’ll sort out a prompt.
