Feedback from some of Anne's recent courses

Lovely day. Really good mix of activities, discussion and idea sharing. Lots of great ideas to put into practice. Reading in the early years foundation stage

Really enjoyed the course. Questions and activity prompts really helped me to get a deeper understanding. We were able to draw on the diverse experiences of the group and yet you as trainer also filled in gaps which we had not yet considered. Special educational needs in museums, galleries and archives

More than anything today's inset made me think about how I can support children with their reading and, more importantly, make reading interesting and exciting for those who are not keen readers. Reading for pleasure at key stages 1 and 2

As a new recruit into the world of the school librarian you have given me real food for thought. I have come away with many ideas to implement. Running a school library

A most useful and interesting day. I feel much more equipped to organise some events/ sessions and try and encourage more parents into school and to share the love of reading with their child/ren. Family literacy

Very enjoyable - a reminder of good practice for early years sessions. Some thought-provoking things were: tackling stereotyping in books, assessing books critically for different situations, ways to build parental confidence. Early years library provision

Excellent course, very engaging. Pace was perfect, and lots of useful ideas. Definitely increased my confidence. Rhymes and rhyme times

A thoroughly enjoyable and informative course. Anne is an excellent trainer and made the subject come alive. It's so interesting to see examples of projects, to see how family learning can take on so many forms but benefit so many. Family learning

Thank you Anne for steering us through this minefield. I like the approach of working in small groups, to discuss our own views, ideas, experience - sharing good/best practice. All this backed up with our own advice and experience. Engaging SEN and reluctant readers

Inspiring - this session has given me new ideas and ways of thinking which I look forward to developing. Young people in museums, libraries and archives
