Testimonials From Previous Workshops:
It was one of the best workshops I’ve attended. The children were drawn in from the start and the way the sense of touch was used to kick-start their imaginations was inspirational. The whole class returned to the classroom fired with ideas to start writing, examples of which I enclose.
Simon Jackson, Primary 6B teacher, Flora Stevenson Primary School Edinburgh

This was a fun and engaging workshop for primary 2. It was age appropriate and relevant. You created a positive learning environment for the children. It was good to hear you share your own struggles in primary school regarding spelling work as this was encouraging children to persevere as you can achieve great things – nothing is out of reach.
Kate Newman, P2 teacher, Low Port Primary School West Lothian
