What they said!

Ed Almond - Wilton and Barford Primary School Salisbury

The children enjoyed the whole day and could see the rapid improvement in their writing and their achievements when making the clay shabtis and the shoebox houses. The day was well structured and enabled ALL the children to access the the learning content.

Claire Harris - Kemsley Primary School Sittingbourne Kent

Children who are normally reluctant to write produced some excellent writing… often at a significant level above their usual standard!
