What do teachers say about this resource? (8725)

The section on the context of their work is excellent and really interesting in itself, but I think the activities are what will enhance the students learning. The style and content will help them get their heads around the 'Kneehigh' way of working. I do think it’s a great resource with lots of depth and excellent learning activities
