Deanshanger primary school sits in the center of Deanshanger village, Milton Keynes. In such an idyllic rural setting, I felt as if I had walked onto the set of Emerdale. I had  fantastic day with everyone.

Thursday and Friday took me to the beautiful county of Wiltshire and the military town of Tidsworth. Clarendon Junior school offered children who did not lack enthusiasm or skill. I had the pleasure of working with some talented children and supportive staff.


Well done guys. I hope to see you all again soon.

Great Bedwyn school, Wiltshire 02/03/2016


This lovely Primary school in the Wiltshire village of Great Bedwyn had a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The children responded with excitement and worked very hard throughout the day. I am particularly pleased to be able to say that all classes produced excellent group-work from Y1 upwards.

We started with reception class who were brilliant and worked very hard for me, (little bless poppets).

Followed by year three and four.

Some words from the class teacher:

I was surprised by the creativity of some of the boys“.

Thank you its always great to get new ideas from professionals“.


I next taught year 1 and 2.




Some words from Kirsten Disley Y2 teacher

All of them really enjoyed it. The boys in particular“.

It was brilliant! Inspiring and creative. The energy was fab“.


In the afternoon I taught Y 5. (a very excitable class).

This class took to my routine very quickly and learnt my set routine in 8 minutes which is very good. (I hope they listen that well in class).

Some words from Susan fry the class teacher.

“100% participation”

“Great exercise and teamwork”.



And finally year 6. (Fantastic).


Now this year 6 class was outstanding from beginning to end. They picked up a challenging routine very quickly and performed it brilliantly with few mistakes. Their group work was exceptional and it was a pleasure to work with them all. 20160302_143818

“It would be good to do more of this type of dance”.
