What the children and teachers have to say...

White Horse Manor Junior School

Dear Twig and Ochre,

I decided to write to you for giving us the best day of my life, thank you.  
When you let us get up I saw the deer leg you used for a sewing kit.

I was mesmerised when I saw the fire and we said "fire brother come!" and it was a real fire!!!

My favourite part was when we held a pheasant because although I loved holding the pheasant I didn't think (realise) it was real.

 

But thank you for the best experience yet.

Steeple Primary

Dear Memma and Twig, wow what can I say.

 

Today was amazing, the children absolutely loved it. They were all engaged and have learnt so much. Your tent was full of fascinating skins, skulls and other interesting items...

 

I’ve had 4 parents message me saying how their child has not been able to stop talking about it since they got home.

I will definitely be in touch to book again.

Gorseland School

Thank you for such a brilliant day with our children.

The children learnt so much in a variety of ways, not just about Stone Age people but respecting animals and not judging people by their appearance. Some children were initially a little apprehensive, but you were so friendly which lead to a discussion about people looking different and therefore being open-minded.

Lots of teachers also brought their classes around for a peek and said this is what we should be doing so much more of. Your visit had a great ripple effect and by far exceeded our expectations. We have passed your details onto another school who have already booked with you and we will certainly be booking you again next year!

Testimonial letter from pupil of stone age school experience

"The Stone age can seem an impossibly distant period of time, yet it is fundamental to understanding human history and human nature"
