“The children have, in general, been inspired to be more creative, adventurous, imaginative and confident in their approach to learning. They demonstrated an improvement in both their listening and presentation skills when performing to an audience. I would also suggest that their creative writing skills have been enhanced as a result of working closely with professional storytellers.”
“I would be delighted to recommend the ‘GIANTS’ workshop and performance to other schools… its context and contents fit very well with the Experiences and Outcomes outlined within the Scottish ‘Curriculum for Excellence’… the workshop/performance links to many inter-disciplinary topics that are currently being taught within primary schools. Examples include, Vikings, Scottish History, etc. Also, skills relating to listening, presentation, performance, etc. are also taught.”
