My grandfather flew in the Lancaster during WWII, he is a former Sgt in the RAF. He's 93 and received the Bomber Command Clasp at the RAF Families Day at RAF Odiham last year. He was a Wireless Operator-Air Gunner (WOp/AG), in 50 Squadron, 5 Group, Bomber Command, based at RAF Skellingthorpe, Lincolnshire.
I would really like to get a picture of the 2 Avro Lancaster bombers flying for him and I was wondering if my Twitter family could help me? I really want to make my grandfather a webpage and video with images and videos of the 2 Avro Lancasters, but I am limited on where I can get to... Can you my Twitter family help make this wish come true for me - can you help me do this?

Which marking pile would you prefer? Which do you think would motivate the students to taking ownership of their books and their work?.... Time for a poll I think...
#FF what a great hashtag, FollowFriday - sharing those Tweeters you know about with others so they can follow them too...
But what happens when you are new to Twitter? Who gives you a shout out and introduces you to people who teach the same subject, the same age range?....
I have already got a long list of AST/SLEs on my website - I started that one a long time ago, so tweeters couls have an idea of who to tweet at for help/support.
So why a new list? Simple - to make available a list of Tweeters for different subject areas. Are you prepared to put your name on the list if so click here for the spreadsheet. This list is simply what is says on the tin - a list of teachers that are on twitter and the subject they teach.
I am always amazed at the generosity, imagination and skill of the people in my Twitter network. Some of the resources that they produce are publishable quality and then some - yet they share them freely...
So I want to celebrate these people show what they can do and let others know about the amazing stuff that is out there.
I am beginning a list of downloadable resources with links to the websites that they come from so you have an idea about what you might find there before you click. The pages will be broken down by subject as well so if you need say, Physics resources, you don't have to go all around the other subjects to find them.
Please share this page with anyone that you know has a great website that supports Teaching and Learning, that has amazing resources that they freely share and I will share them on my website if they contact me with a few details about their website/blog/resources.
