  • "Adapting the session to try and involve support staff more i.e. use of resources for individual pupils, could be helpful. Lessen waiting times for pupils when sitting in wheelchairs i.e. if inspected, inspectors would expect more children to be fully engaged/active in some way during the session if possible. The creativity of the resources was great e.g. elephant trunk and sound, Big Ben clock and sound. Bring in more sensory aspects where possible alongside "touch" and "sound" e.g. more on "smell" or "taste" perhaps? Many thanks for your time and effort. It is much appreciated and enjoyed by pupils and staff."
  • "Very enjoyable session. Students engaged and thoroughly enjoyed the stories. Thanks."
  • "Really enthusiastic storyteller who was great with the students. Kept focused despite the behaviours of some of the students. Very interactive and exciting for each student. Phenominal props!"
