"I have just had a chance to sit and watch the teaching the key competencies while kids play webinar.  Thanks so much, it was very valuable for me as a beginning teacher to understand ways to be able to teach these in the classroom.  I feel much more confident now to be able to pull something out from my observations of play to work on with the class and how to do this.

"I look forward to more Longworth Education webinars!"

"Your presentation was superb and had me smiling away and laughing out loud!  In fact, your amazingness made me feel quite inadequate!  You will be pleased to know that tomorrow afternoon Room 9 is making 'George's Marvelous Medicine' and my T.Aide is planning to have a magic oven (double-doored cardboard box oven) which produces edible fairy bread once the magical potion is put in!  Let the fun begin!"

"Oh, we had so much fun making Marvelous Medicine! The poor carpet suffered under our creativity though, and we made it into the newsletter this week (because a group of girls were sharing a kids cookbook and made up a fantasy cook-off, telling everyone what group they'd be in and who out of the powers above were going to be the judges) We had a four-group bake off in the staff room, with no-bake fudge/truffle dishes.  The next day The Principal and two Deputy Principals were cordially invited to judge the dishes. Oh, the squeals of delight at the judging! The children all took home cellophane parcels of all the treats.  We honoured Tanvi with massive applause at the end, for taking the book out of the school library and making up the idea!  How much am I enjoying the licence to follow child-led learning?  

"Thank you, Longworth, for all your guidance and affirmation that we are on the right track.  But most of all for leading the charge and changing the tone, under which our children can learn best!  Thank goodness!"
