Testimonials for this workshop

"Fantastic feedback from staff, parents & most importantly the kids! WW1 isn't an easy subject to make accessible to kids, especially 5 year olds - but you did us proud! Another booking in the diary I believe! Nice one Sir!"


Adam Vasco (Deputy Headteacher, Liverpool)


"What a great day! The pupils loved the many and varied experiences you offered them and the staff thought the day worked very well, with a very good balance of activities and lots of learning! It was a most successful visit, due hugely to the links made to your own relative and all the research relating to him, as well as the many 'hands-on' opportunities you provided and your care and attention to detail, such as getting to know pupils' names, for example. Your delivery and organisation were excellent, as you could see from the pupils' responses. Many thanks from us all, for a memorable living history day.  From Staff and Pupils at Giggleswick Primary School, North Yorkshire."


Emma Thompson, Giggleswick, North Yorkshire


“A truly cross-curricular day - inclusive, enjoyable and informative from beginning to end!"

"Many, many thanks for a fantastic day on Wednesday. The key stage 1 and reception children thoroughly enjoyed the World War 1 workshops. You brought a fairly tricky concept for young children to life in a way that was meaningful to them. They left school buzzing and have been eager to find out more! Thank you again."


Claire Wardell, KS1 teacher
