Meet the two Mr Ps...

The Two Mr Ps in a Pod(Cast) is one of the most popular educational podcasts. Emma Lee-Potter meets the two brothers behind the show and shares some of their anecdotes about primary school life

From the unexpected objects that children bring to show and tell sessions to the trials and tribulations of putting up classroom displays, Lee Parkinson and his younger brother Adam enjoy swapping stories about the world of primary education.

The pair work in Manchester primary schools. Lee, who is known as Mr P, teaches three days a week at Davyhulme Primary School, where he provides PPA (planning, preparation and assessment) cover for year 2 and year 4 classes and is in charge of the school’s digital literacy.

For the rest of the week he works as an educational consultant, running CPD courses across the country and beyond on using technology to raise teaching standards across the curriculum. Adam, known as The Other Mr P, is a full-time higher level teaching assistant at a primary school in Salford, mainly focusing on upper key stage 2 pupils.
