Comment on Tim's training
"Thank you for the fantastic INSET that you led for the cluster of schools... everyone was so enthusiastic, so well done! You gave us some fantastic ideas (some of which have already been used in my Reception class) and gave a real boost to our early years literacy planning."

Comment on Julia's training
"The training has given me the confidence to encourage children in my care to shape their own stories rather than use books and to extend the stories to incorporate related activities."
"The course enabled me to see that there are other ways of telling stories which involve children in the process."
