What teachers in Leicestershire say about the project:
‘The children have been inspired. They experienced two extremely creative days and are still talking about it. The parents were also very impressed. They enjoyed learning about ‘the bigger picture’, talking to real people in real life jobs. It opened their minds to greater things beyond the classroom. More please St Josephs Catholic Voluntary Academy
‘A great opportunity for teamwork and creativity. The children were able to work innovatively and use deeper thinking skills in their designs. Some of the children with SEN loved being given the opportunity to use their skills’ Ratby Primary
