Gyles, thank you so much for the work you did with us last week. Everyone was really inspired and encouraged by what you said and did with us. I have had several excited emails this week from teachers who have taken their teaching outside and who have said that the children have enjoyed and really learnt in an exciting way.  Helen Smith Montacute Primary School
