'The children were really engaged from the beginning. They found it a stimulating and a fun way of learning about the historical events. They enjoyed being vocal and reading out their parts in character. It was fantastic working with the workshop facilitator, he was really interacting and engaging with the children. He constantly praised the children and brought lots of humour to the performance. It was amazing to see the performance come together by a fantastic director.' School in Bradford
