At the heart of English folk

Thoughts and photos

Quotes from people who have been involved in The Full English schools programme, which will culminate in a one-day showcase conference on 25 June 2014 at Town Hall, Birmingham.

 

“The Full English… surpassed my expectations. It reached across the curriculum. It improved the standard of imaginative writing. It prompted us to start a community band. And it definitely deepened the children’s love of history.”
Ben Stephenson, Headteacher, Marton Primary School

 

“I really enjoyed doing the folk, because when you hear ‘folk dancing’ you don’t really get into it much, but when you actually start doing the practical aspect of it you start getting into it, and I think it’s really cool!”
Year 11 student, Horizon Community College
