Free Festive Cheer on Facebook Live!

Returning to Facebook Live for a Christmas Special

At the end of March, I decided to do something constructive with Lockdown and started to do the Punctuation Show Live on Facebook Live.

The show was successful and provided some thing a little different for families struggling with home schooling.  

There were some teething problems, but they were sorted and I managed to increase my page engagement significantly.  In fact my page likes and followers increased by over 300%, which was a good result!

As things went “back to normal” I decided to stop the live sessions, but it had already gone some way to inspire the Covid-safe catch-up sessions, which are available to book for 2021.  Anyone who’s seen either the live Punctuation Show/Grammar Show, or seen the online version will know it’s all about trying to raise attainment through entertainment.  As December approached, I thought what better way to engage young children than getting Santa involved.  This idea developed into the Christmas version of the show, with Santa as the guest presenter.

This seemed to go down well according to my wonderful customers:

"We all really enjoyed another fabulous visit from Barrie today. All of our children in KS1 and KS2 thoroughly enjoyed themselves and Barrie was as energetic and engaging as he always is! We would highly recommend. Many thanks!"

Hopefully it won't be too long before we can have you back in school.

As a result of this, I’ve decide to have a Christmas special on Facebook Live, with Santa as a guest presenter.

This will be perfect to give pupils a quick reminder of their obligations to their writing and also a nice free festive treat.  There will be a donation button to allow support for Willow Burn Hospice.

The Christmas special will take place on Wednesday 23rd December at 10:00am on Facebook live.

You can register your interest in the (virtual) event here, or give the page a ‘like’ here.

Hope to see you there and Merry Christmas.
