Testimonials

Thank you, Jeffrey for your energy, creativity and commitment to the arts, museums and learning.

Robin Tuddenham, Chief Executive, Calderdale Council.

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with you Jeffrey.

You have been a professional colleague who has managed the unexpected with good grace and humour and created a vibrant programme for all the students involved.

Looking forward to working with you in the future.

Linda Cowie, Co-Director, The Linking Network.

As a part of our Anglo-Saxon topic, Jeffrey arranged an archaeological dig and Saxon brooch making with our Year 5 class. These activities were so practical, fun and engaging. All the children were able to discover so much about how the Saxons lived in a way that will stick with them so much longer than just reading about it.

Jeffrey really brings a lot of passion and enthusiasm to the activities he delivers, which only increases the enjoyment and enthusiasm the children have. We definitely hope to have him visit again!

Liz Cowton, Year 5 Teacher, Christchurch Primary School, Halifax.

My daughter attended the weekly Halifax Saturday Art Club activities at Bankfield Museum from the age of 8 until she was 14 years old that Jeffrey managed and delivered; these creative sessions were always fun and informative.

Under Jeffrey’s guidance her artistic skills have flourished and he has become an inspiration for her, as she now wants to pursue a career in art and design.

I would highly recommend Jeffrey’s classes and sessions!

Today, we did no work at all because Jeffrey came in and it was so fun.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for such an amazing day! The children were all engaged and interested in your Vikings activity which was well organised with great resources.
 
It has been really interesting to learn about your artwork and how this relates to the topic work in school.

Samantha Turner, Year 5 Teacher, St. Malachy’s Catholic Primary School, Halifax.

Listen Up! I’m glad I met you to do all the amazing Stone Age things. It was one of the best days in Year 3 and I hope you can come in to school again.

Year 3 pupil, Sacred Heart Primary School, Sowerby Bridge.

Thank you for an excellent day Jeffrey. The children and myself thoroughly enjoyed all the activities that you brought for us to do during The Toys Through Time workshop.

Polly Williams, Year 1-2 Teacher, Heptonstall Infant School, Hebden Bridge.

Today, in Year Six, we have been developing our skills as archaeologists. We have delved deep into the past to uncover many wonderful artefacts, which we then catalogued. It was essential that we worked collaboratively on our ‘digs’ to find the lost treasures.

In the afternoon, we worked with clay to make our very own Greek pottery following authentic Greek patterns and designs. It was a really exciting day that has been the perfect culmination on all our learning about the Ancient Greeks. Thank you, Jeffrey – you were fantastic!

Alex Chamberlain, Year 6 Teacher, All Saints Junior and Infant School, Halifax.

Thank you very much for the time you spent with our Year 4 class today. It was a super morning of well planned and perfectly paced activities. All the children thoroughly enjoyed working with you Jeffrey.
