"Just wanted to say a huge thank you for providing us with a fantastic Tudor day last Thursday. The children absolutely loved it from start to finish and wrote glowing newspaper reports about all the interesting things they learnt and the fun activities they tried. We were very impressed with the quality of the sessions, you provided really exciting ways to learn about Tudor life! The resources you brought were great, especially the Tudor feast, games and medicine ingredients, and your natural rapport with the children (in character the whole day!) was outstanding. I would recommend the Specialists for History topic days to every school!"
Simon Morrell (Class Teacher, Lincs)
just wanted to put into writing how much we loved your Viking day. It
was brilliant. The children and staff all enjoyed it. For children of
that age to sit and listen to you for over an hour shows how engaged
they were. This was down to your excellent delivery and brilliant
knowledge about what interests children, not to mention your amazing
knowledge of Vikings. The staff also thought the day was wonderful. As
you can imagine they see a lot of people coming to deliver lessons to
our pupils and they all commented that you were the best. So thank you
very much. We will definitely be contacting you again and I would
happily recommend you to other schools.
Caroline Webster, Class Teacher, Notts
"I am pleased that the children were all
good representatives of the school regarding their behaviours -
although I do know that behaviour was not an issue because they were
so hooked. You made the Egyptian era extremely realistic, fun and
exciting and the children are going to get some fantastic work from
your visit. Thank you very much and I shall be in touch in the
Helen Winfield, Class Teacher, South Yorkshire
"Hi Lisa, thank you so much for today;
the children had a fab time and learned loads and have gone home to
make their own papyrus paper - surely a good sign. What you do is
great and I will gladly recommend you in the future"
Sarah Goode, Class Teacher, Northants
just wanted to say how much my Year One class enjoyed having a visit
from "Tommy Top Hat". The range of old toys and knowledge that Greg had
was very impressive. Greg was able to answer many questions that the
children had, which was fantastic.
Thank you to Lisa who was on
the end of the phone answering any questions I had and helping to make
the whole experience for the children and myself run smoothly.
I shall look forward to opportunities in the future where I can ask "The Specialists" to come to our school.
Many Thanks and Kind Regards"
Lauren McPherson, Class Teacher, Warks
"Dear Greg, I
wanted to thank you again for spending the day with us. The children
really enjoyed it and it got our theme off to a flying start! I've
written a quick blog post and added a recommendation and a link to your
website as I am sure other teachers will be interested."
Jo Badge, Class Teacher, Leics
you for a wonderful Viking day. The children were engaged and
entertained all day and you provided a perfect balance of informative
talk, questioning and practical experiences. The highlights for us were
handling the artifacts (the seal skin was amazing), playing a variety
of Viking games and listening to the storytelling, especially the
communal story where we all joined in! You really brought the different
aspects of raiding and trading to life and we can't wait to invite you
back next year.Many thanks on behalf of the Year 3 children and staff."
Josie Heald, Class Teacher, Northants
Leagrid and Gregolf! We wanted to say a big 'thank you' for coming to
(our school) ... last Tuesday. The children really enjoyed themselves
and here are some of the things they said: "I enjoyed holding the
weapons!"; "I enjoyed playing Nine Men's Morris."; "I loved playing Kubb
and throwing the other team's pins back."; "I liked it when Gregolf
told us a story and the children and teachers joined in."; "I liked
Leagrid showing us the Viking dance." It was a fantastic day and the
children learned lots of new facts. ... Many thanks again and I hope we
see you in the future.

A local school's blog about our Viking Day, when we worked with the whole school.
"Fantastic, knowledgeable and fun
- the children were engrossed at all times. We would certainly invite
The Specialists back into school. They have been professional, tailored
activities to the children’s needs and involved both staff and children
alike. We all had a fantastic morning. Thank you."
Mrs Fisher, Yr. 3 Teacher, Desford Primary School
A recent re-booking which the teacher blogged about.
just like to say thank you for two brilliant sessions Greg has put on
for us, the children really enjoyed both and have spoke about them ever since."
