Toys from the past: Story World adventure

We were very satisfied with the content, delivery and pace of the sessions. Using the medium of story to delivery the sessions really inspired the children and helped bring the past to life. A highly recommended workshop.

The children absolutely loved it, it was very hands on and got their imagination going. Bryony was amazing at taking them into another world.

Thank you for being so inclusive to our cohort- every child joined in with the whole day. It was enjoyed by all

Brilliant session! The children were very engaged and really enjoyed it.

Children were able to link their classroom learning to their experiences on the trip. The discussion about evacuees was useful- it helped to make the concept of evacuation more relatable. The children loved the experience of sheltering in the air-raid shelter
