Feedback from Teachers On the Egyptian Workshop

We thoroughly enjoyed the Egyptian Workshop yesterday. It allowed those less academic children to shine and excel and express them selves through creative art. The work the children produced was to a very high standard and all children made something and were involved.
I have shown the History leader our work and she was very impressed.

What a wonderful day! The children all loved learning about Egyptian Fashions. All the children loved it, had so much fun, and learnt so much. Linda Kielty, Y4 teacher, St. Clement's CE Primary, Openshaw (May 2015)

Many thanks for a great couple of days. The boys and staff got a huge amount out of it. It has really fired our imaginations.

It was super to be able to mix the factual learning with an art activity. The boys were on task and really focussed during these sessions. Thank you.

Many thanks again for a superb few days.

Just a quick email to say 'Thank You' for your visit last week. The children thoroughly enjoyed it and still talk about it now. It really brought the topic to life and inspired them to carry out their own research.

Jane Dempsey, Y5 teacher, Springfield Primary, Burnley (March 2014)
The children had a great day and learnt a lot. We are hoping to use some of the information in our class assembly in a few weeks time. Once again thank you for a very interesting and enjoyable day.
Emma McMahon, Y4 teacher, Parklee Primary School, Atherton (Nov 2010)
Thank you so much for a fantastic day! All of the class loved it and I did too. Your knowledge of Ancient Egypt is amazing! My nephew is over the moon with your book.
Emma Furness, Y3/4 teacher, Norris Bank Primary, Stockport (Oct 2010)

The workshop was amazing the children even now cannot stop talking about it. What I personally liked is the way that you brought to life the Egyptians with your artefacts, paintings and writing. The children liked the hieroglyphic writing, and display which we put together in the hall for all to see is still there and children still look and talk about it. It was one perfect day, I myself learned so much and I thank you for that.


Brian Fletcher, Y4 teacher St.Aidan's RC Primary School, Wythenshawe

Very practical, hands on. A fantastic learning experience. All the children and myself found the whole workshop worthwhile and a super learning experience.


Year 4 teacher, Queensgate Primary School, Bramhall

Excellent, plenty of variety to interest and stimulate the children.


Year 3/4 teacher, Mellor Primary School


An excellent day. The children particularly enjoyed the practical activities. I liked the variety of activities and the fact that some challenged the has inspired the children when making their own artefacts using clay.


Mrs Beswick, Y6 teacher, Seymour Park Primary School, Old Trafford

A great way to introduce the Egyptians. Excellent practical activities that challenged the children. The artefacts made create a great classroom display.


Mr Daniels, Y5/6 teacher, Seymour Park Primary School

I thought it was excellent. I enjoyed and the children enjoyed the hieroglyphs and the practical work in the afternoon. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.


Mrs Rice, Y5 teacher, Seymour Park Primary School

The children have not stopped talking about yesterday yet! Thank you for the great day, they got so much out of everything!
