Home School Class with Steve Backshall (Wednesday mornings 9am)

Self isolating? I’m doing an online home school class on Wednesday, and the response has been immense… I’m going to set up a YouTube channel. Details will be on here ASAP. Also to include my friends on the other side of the world, let’s do 9am GMT (8pm Sydney time)? Please post some questions beforehand so I can root around the house for any teaching aids…. huge love to you all SB
