Amazing resources, lots of them visual and engaging. Definitely what our SEN children could access and find interesting and motivating.


The class really enjoyed the session, the workshop was very well paced and held their interest. The props were excellent. They came back and told friends and teachers about what they had seen and done, they were very excited on the bus back. They spent the rest of the afternoon building models of Tower Bridge with playdough and blocks!


Can't recommend the visit to Tower Bridge to any educational establishment enough.
