Wow what a brilliant day my class had with Matt. He was fantastic and such a good teacher, keeping the class engaged all day. His manner and enthusiasm kept them on task which in turn, prevented any issues with behaviour.
Our topic at the moment is ancient Egypt, so this play really fitted in with what we are doing. I was especially impressed with the way he involved the quieter children in the play, they all had parts and words to say. The children left the day feeling that they had achieved something of value and in the process also had a lot of fun. The rest of the school were also impressed by the finished result.

I am writing to thank you for the "Play in a Day" workshop your company ran for us yesterday. The practitioner, Sara, was outstanding - she was friendly, professional, had great behaviour management skills and a creative and effective way of working with young people. I can honestly say this is the first time in a long time that I have had a practitioner in school who genuinely is worth the money! The play that our students developed and performed was fantastic and enjoyed by all the year 9s and 10s who watched it and most importantly the performers were really proud of what they did.

Matt energised and entertained an entire key stage. He used a range of subjects including Literacy, History, popular culture, sport, teamwork and of course, drama. He was particularly effective with some of the Y6 children who might have been less enthusiastic following SATs. Matt was flexible and worked around the needs of our school. Matt came to our school loaded with ideas, energy and enthusiasm. This proved to be a contagious mix which inspired all the pupils across a very wide range of abilities. He got everyone working and brought out some brilliant performances from some unlikely places! His management of a large group of children was exemplary. We will certainly recommend Konflux and in particular Matt Driver to other schools.
