What the Children and Parents had to Say

From the parents..

I think the project was great and my son really enjoyed it and involving the parents makes it even more valuable.

Parent, East Oxford Primary School

I am very sure my children will remember this experience for many years to come.

Thank you for making this possible.

Parent, East Oxford Primary School

My son (and no doubt, the other children) have learnt a great deal through this creative method of teaching! Thank you!!

Parent, East Oxford Primary School

Wow! What a fantastic partnership between the museum and our school. The participation of everyone involved from the children to museum staff and teachers was wonderful to see. Learning can be so much fun!

From the children:

The story helped me concentrate and helped me remember the clocks

I want to come back to the museum and bring Mum and Dad and tell them the story of the clocks

anything for inspiration

I really enjoyed the whole project, but most of all, the magnificent storyteller Anna, she makes everything funny. She even gets the parents to participate.
