History Drama Workshop (Year 2) - November 2021

How did you find communications with the school in the lead-up to your visit?

Absolutely fantastic! Sadie was really friendly, and gave me all the information that I needed to ensure the workshops hit the right mark.

Were you made to feel welcome during your visit?

Definitely. All teachers were friendly, they promptly showed me where I needed to go, where the staff room was and where the toilets were, should I need them. On the occasion where I got a bit lost, a friendly face showed me where I needed to be.

How did you find the behaviour and attitude of the children?

It was so lovely to see the children get stuck in! Usually, on non-school uniform days, children can get a bit rowdy - however, the children were respectful and ready to learn.

Did you feel the children were engaged and responsive?

All children were engaged throughout and happy to get involved. It was brilliant to see how much knowledge they had on the subject already and they were more than happy to tell me information they knew that hadn’t been mentioned.

Thank you so much for having me! I would more than happily return!
