“They were all engaged and they enjoyed getting involved with the actions. I will use the story box idea.”

“Children were all engaged throughout. They clearly enjoyed the stories. I loved the session! It has given me lots of new ideas to support my teaching.”
Our Lady’s Bishop Eton Primary, Liverpool.

“They were transfixed! Lovely to remember that stories can be ‘told’. Using the storybox and modelling enables the children to see how they might do it. So lovely to see Lamby and Miss Lennon again, she is an inspiration! Songs, story tin, story boxes, puppets – what more could you ask for?”

“They sat totally immersed in the stories. I thought it was wonderfully entertaining and inspiring! Brilliant use of props to help create a story. Excellent class control through use of voice levels, resources and offer to choose from the box. I think this is a fantastic venture with huge benefits for staff, parents and children. It was wonderful!”
