What do teachers think?

"Amazing trip for any Key Stage two group of children. Full of well organised, hands on activities. My class of year 4 students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and it was great value for money."

"I really liked the interaction and the way children got the opportunity to hold objects instead of just looking at them"

"10/10- the children remained engaged throughout the session and had a wonderful insight into Jewish faith"

"The wide range of activities involved all children in the session and they recieved first hand experiences of Jewish life through objects they could hold"

"Very engaging and lively session. I will highly recommend to other staff in my school"

Lucy in Year 5 said "Thank you so much! My favourite part was when you read the story about Passover and we had different props and figures that we had to throw in when Moses tried to persuade Pharaoh to let the Jewish people go!"
