Whether you’re homeschooling your kids or you just want to immerse yourself in nostalgic vibes, you’ll probably be excited to know that former ‘Blue Peter’ presenter Konnie Huq has launched a fun-but-educational YouTube channel.

The presenter posted on Twitter that she’ll be sharing videos at 10am every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. She promises reading, writing, STEM, and arts-and-crafts activities suitable for kids between the ages of six and 12 (and, let’s be honest, grown-up ‘Blue Peter’ fans too).

She posted her first video today – a short reading from her own book ‘Cookie and the Most Annoying Boy in the World’, along with story-writing tips, writing exercises to try and a discussion about equality and judgement. There’ll be a baking lesson on Friday where she’ll be revealing the recipe to her ‘secret three-ingredient cookies’.
