Feedback from teachers about Jules's workshops...

 

 

“This was one of the days when I actually wished OFSTED could be present to witness the awe and wonder."
 

- St Michael’s Junior School

 

"The kids are still buzzing about the visit and want to know when you’re coming back! The day was amazing and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Jules delivered exactly what we had asked him and pitched everything at exactly at the right level. The kids were hooked on every word he said and showed some excellent learning. Would definitely have him at our school again."

– Littleworth Grange School, Barnsley

 

"A super day - the kids (and staff) got loads out of it. Jules had a lovely manner with the children and changed the pitch just right for the different age groups."

– Southroyd Primary School, Leeds

"Thank you for the fantastic day at St Peters. Everyone was really impressed with the sessions, from reception right up to year 6."

- St Peter's Primary School, Tower Hamlets

 

“The visit got the whole school talking about science - most of year 5, 7 and 8 now want to be 'fossil hunters' and several have requested that their parents take them on a fossil collecting holiday! It was great to see all the students talking so animatedly and showed them that there is so much yet to discover.” 

- Notting Hill Prep School

 

“An excellent day. The children thoroughly enjoyed their experiences and every class wanted more! We would definitely recommend a visit.” 

- Whitton CE Primary School


“Wow!  What a wonderful day, Jules was so enthusiastic and his love of what he does was apparent. His ability to inspire the children (and adults) was immense.  The differentiation between year groups was very well pitched and the children were so enthusiastic and learnt a lot from Jules!”

 

Children were heard saying: “that's been the best day ever at school!”

 

- Abbotts Ripton CE Primary School

 

"The response from the children and staff was overwhelmingly positive. The sessions were totally hands-on and the children were so interested mainly because Jules is so passionate and enthusiastic about his subject. In terms of value for money, we would have really struggled to give our children this sort of experience any other way. We will definitely be booking another session next year."

 

- Middleton Primary School

 

"Staff and children were very positive about the experience and enjoyed the 'hands-on' learning they would not have had the opportunity to do without this visit from Jules. I also liked the way the sessions were tailored to the needs of the children."

 

- Nechells Primary School

 

"Would we do this again? Undoubtedly, this was school budget spent effectively and gave the children the opportunity to be scientists  for the day and who knows maybe the future scientists to lead others. We will be repeating these sessions again next year for more lucky children."

 

- Horsforth Featherbank Infants School

“Our fossil workshop sessions were probably the best we have ever booked. They were so hands on, with high quality resources - Jules' passion for his subject hooked the children straight away.
