What do teachers say?

‘Trips always involve a lot of organising but as we were able to meet with Rosie and visit Great St Mary’s prior to our trip, the organisation was much easier.

Additionally, as Rosie kindly created some beautiful resources, this helped hugely.

The best part was having the resource sheets to give structure to the children’s experience, and the hands-on activities with visuals and objects.

The link to our R.E topic was perfect but mostly the children were overwhelmed by being able to visit such amazing buildings in Cambridge.’

– Year 3 teachers, Shirley Community Primary School

‘Thank you so much for all you did to set things up for the trip. We had a terrific day.

There was a warm welcome at Great St Mary’s and the children were fascinated by the ten bridesmaids’ window and story.

King’s entry was very smooth and the Tudor trail which we did in the afternoon was a perfect balance of information, route planning and storytelling –the children were obviously really pleased to become experts on their home town.

We would really like to repeat the trip next year so will be in touch again in 2016!’

– Headteacher, Milton Road Primary School
