"It was enjoyable for everyone and I have some new ideas for learning activities that I will use in class in future, so thank you for that. Sally was amazing and so helpful. Her passion for the subject really came across and the children were able to express their ideas in a way that made them think about their audience and how they worked together. It also allowed all the children, especially those who are quiet in class, a chance to find their voice. "
