Sad to hear of the death of Sam McBratney, co-creator with Anita Jeram of 'Guess How Much I Love You'. 'I love you to the moon and back' resonated across the world...A lovely tribute to his 'gentle celebration of unconditional love' here in the Guardian: https://t.co/sMgbAOhqGU

Colleagues - can we get a big shout out to all the school office staff out there. They are currently the unsung heroes of our schools right now. Fielding phone calls, monitoring attendance & having to work like a medical call centre. It's a tough job & they do it well. Please RT https://t.co/VFZQng2ckf

Did you know that the most common sound in the English language is the schwa? This is the ‘uh’ sound in words like ‘cinema’ and ‘the.’ Interestingly, ‘schwa’ is a German word but meaning comes from a Hebrew word meaning ‘emptiness’ as if the sound isn’t there at all.

RIP Chadwick Boseman. Thank you for all the amazing films and good works. And thank you for Black Panther, which made the adult me smile and the child in me rejoice because - at last. Rest in eternal peace and power. 😔 https://t.co/aeQh4iaE7J
