    What a fantastic whistlestop tour of “inspirational” ideas that are going to be invaluable in the classroom.
    Tim and Sarah’s delivery enthusiasm and style were captivating and made the day fly -unfortunately – wish it was longer😥

    Great advice and ideas to take back and (as Tim says) play with.

    Thank you
