Hear from the schools we have visited in 2021.

All of the feedback below is from recent in-person workshops. We are thrilled schools have responded so positively to the changes we have made to make our workshops COVID-safe.


COVID-Safe Workshops

"Thank you for providing two fantastic sessions for the children. The changes in relation to COVID did not lessen the experience. It was lovely to have a sense of normality in this crazy year!”
Hannah Stock, St Margaret's C of E Academy, Basildon
"We love Florence! Although they know that Florence isn't real, the facilitator manages to take them right into the world of Florence . . . It was such a nice way to bring all of our learning together. Although she wore a visor, the children were really enaged, fascinated, and loved learning from her."
Lisa Youle, Valley End Infants, Woking
"Honestly one of the best experiences we have had, my LSA and I were stunned! The children loved every minute and will remember this day for a long time.”
Claire Arrowsmith, Our Lady of the Rosary RC Primary School, Bristol

Star Feedback

"Thank you, again, for such wonderful WWII workshops.

The experience was a superb chance to take a break from the rigour of remote/home/classroom learning!

They [the pupils] have fed back that they all really enjoyed the workshop! Rebecca was really engaging and there were a variety of activities to keep the them busy! They said they loved all of the opportunity to move around, take part in actions/scenarios and loved when she recreated the evacuee scenario – given COVID-19, it was still really interactive. We thought it was pitched at a great level educationally – they were able to reflect on what they’ve learnt so far within the topic and had plenty of chances to exemplify their knowledge and understanding."

Matthew Greenway-Poole, Wetherby School, Notting Hill (Second World War)
