clarendon junior school wiltshire – 10 + 11/03/2016

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.

 

ST Mary’s Catholic Primary school – Workington – 22/02/2016

The first day of the new term took me North to Cumbria and St Mary’s Catholic Primary school in Workington. After a grey and drizzly Sunday evening drive through the impressive cloud covered Cumbria hills, I rested a for the night at a very Dickensian style Bed and Breakfast in Workington.

My day at St Mary’s was excellent and I would like to thank both staff, children and Lunch time staff for making day there so enjoyable.

Errington Primary school 09/10/2015

Another 5 A.M. start on my way to the Redcar on the east coast. Lovely journey there driving past misty fields and arrived just as the sun was rising on the coast.

Errington primary school was situated between the ocean and the commondale hills in a very attractive part of the country. A very friendly and welcoming school with staff who got involved in every workshop. Its always good for the children to see their teachers making the odd mistake or two. Every class had a workshop except for nursery, (sorry little guys). And the day ended with a performance from year 5 and 6 for parents and the rest of the school. I think that we all had a great day.

Some words from the staff:

“54 kids and 2 teachers completely engaged, (though the scissor kick was a stretch for the teachers).
They had fun and learned that it is ok to make mistakes. Even children who thought they did not like dance loved it, the keen footballer types had a great time”.
Claire English

“Every child engaged and some of the less confident children had a smile on their faces throughout. Really enjoyable workshop”.
Mr Bennet
