Exciting, I know.

I'm looking for one that does fat primary pencils as well and, if possible, can be plugged in (USB). I've looked at Amazon but wanted specific teacher reviews as it'll have to sharpen a huge volume of pencils!

Any recommendations?

You need one that cuts out automatically after 15 seconds and sets off a red code work avoidance klaxon.

I have one that does different width pencils from school supply catalogue GLS. It's a few years old and going strong still!

I suspect I'm most likely to carry out the work avoidance...

I'll check out the GLS catalogue and see what there is.

I've got the Derwent one, I paid about £12 for it. It's OK in Reception, where it's used by adults, but when they got one in Year 1 that was used by the children it lasted less than half a term. Even in Reception mine has broken a few times, so would recommend with the proviso that it's delicate.
