Thank you, Rachel for coming into Layfield Primary School and sharing your books with our Early Years. The children loved listening to your story books and thoroughly enjoyed the workshops you delivered. The children learnt so much about animals and caring for the environment. We were then inspired to find out more animal footprints! Everyone had a super morning!
I can happily recommend Rachel to you to come in and carry out the workshops in your Early Years setting.
Rachel has delivered some outstanding Literacy training for trainee teachers at the North East Schools Teaching Alliance based at Nunthorpe Academy.
Her sessions are always informative, useful, well-resourced and thoroughly engaging. She uses a mix of well planned activities, many practical in nature. Her open, relaxed style holds the attention and she always provides a range of useful strategies which can be applied in the classroom. Rachel is incredibly knowledgeable and she effectively shares that knowledge in her sessions as well as willingly providing help and support to trainees who need it further down the line.
Thank you, Rachel, for all your hard work and dedication to improve the Literacy of our students, our trainees and all of our teachers. With each session you inspire us to do this better! I can happily recommend Rachel to you for any Literacy / English based training.

“It’s really made me think. Next time someone’s being horrible, I’m going to think about why they feel like that before I get angry at them.” SW (aged 14)
“The Boy Who Couldn’t is an excellent book about the difference friendship and family can make to one’s life. It offers drama, tension, thrills and compassion. It teaches children that they are not defined by their past and circumstances, but by who they want to be and the content of their character.
A great read that makes you feel and care for the all characters, humans and animals alike.
The final act of the book is such an exciting read and you won’t stop until the conclusion.” MR (Amazon customer)
“A good interesting read, which highlights the problems in a fictional story. Raising the awareness of the problems that Badgers face through persecution, and shows the need to educate, to tackle the cruelty today”
Craig Fellowes, Badger Trust Training Coordinator
“Beautifully written and wonderfully illustrated, a joy to read to little ones, I can’t wait for the next one!” Madpants (Amazon customer)
