Mr Graham – The programme supported the teaching and learning of ALL curriculum areas.
Ms Redpath – Parents came on board the programme enabled us to engage all the family.
Ms Russell – We definitely found the programme easy to use and were particularly pleased with the development in language and maths skills.
Ms Sanderson – The programme was fully explained, we used the EYFS poster provided and all the children shared an interest bringing their parents in too.
Mrs Tully – The delivery was prompt and informative, we used the EYFS planning materials and the chicks were used as a springboard for activities covering several areas of the Early Years Curriculum.
Ms Gunston and Harker – The learning and language that the chicks provoked provided a real ‘WOW’ factor!
