Summer School 2017
Acton High Transition Summer School
This has been a great experience for me! It has helped me more confident about high school

I was nervous at the beginning but now I have made new friends

This week I have learnt that being respectful is more important than falling out

We love these quotes from students who participated in our Transition Summer School at Acton High School, where we were delighted to visit for the fifth year!

Bigfoot Big Book Project
Bigfoot North East was thrilled to work with the Ernest Cook Trust this summer to deliver the Bigfoot Big Book Project Summer Holiday Club at Wallsend Library. During this 5 day project, children used technology including photography and animation as a stimulus for story making, which had some amazing results!

We love this evaluation from one very happy parent - ‘A holiday club that is not sport! Love that it is all about creativity, imagination and performing!’ Wonderful!

Teacher INSET
Team Building INSET
Bigfooter Jules had an amazing day delivering a start of term team building INSET at St Joseph's Primary School in Nottingham last week. Deputy Head Teacher Sinead Broad told us:

Jules made all staff feel comfortable but at the same time encouraged them to come out of their comfort zone and provided excellent opportunities for our staff to bond whilst at the same time having a real giggle and providing ideas to transfer to the classroom.
