We’re always grateful to schools that give us feedback after workshops, as this helps us report to funders and our Board and to improve and develop our Participate programme for next year. We’re delighted to have great feedback when we’re working with a new artistic partner, Moving Arts Parts who are based in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Workshops were led by their Education Lead, Will Steele –
“The children were very engaged and enthused with the puppet making, developed new skills and techniques and were proud of their work.”
“The quality of the teaching and interaction with the children was excellent.”
“The children enjoyed working with new materials. They loved having a finished product of their own design.”
“This is a project that Key Stage 1 staff now feel confident to teach themselves to cohorts of children in subsequent years, thank you very much :)”
“The outcomes were that each child worked with new materials to design and make a puppet. Design and making process. Evaluation. Development of skills. Building of self-esteem.”
“We plan to use the puppets in a storytelling activity.”
“Children had not taken part in a workshop before and this was an introduction to a new artform”.
