What they said!

Gillian Duke - West Borough Primary Maidstone

He has the ability to mesmerise, entertain and inspire children

Carol Wood - Southborough School Maidstone

Ian was a total pleasure to listen to when working with my year 5 class. The suspense produced by some of my writers had me on the edge of my seat! The phenomenal vocabulary and inference produced by all the children showed just how inspired they were.
