Dr Ferret on July 17 and 18

A fantastic review from Hazel Silver. Thanks Hazel.
A 5* + experience. John To all the wonderful people involved thank you for a wonderful afternoon.
 
I have sat and read posts about the wonderful adventures and experiences you have with school children and am in awe.
 
Today I and my grandchildren who do not live in your working area where transported to another time and place. It was great to see you at work though you all seemed to be enjoying working too much!!! Thank you so much for bringing this out to the public for us to see what some fortunate school children experience and learn from. A great teaching tool.

In The Woods review

Debbie Meeson, teacher from St Philip's Primary writes ...... "This was the most magical experience the children have ever had!! Wow!"
Here's what In The Woods is about .... we could bring it to your school!
In The Woods is a project for children aged between 6 and 8 years in which we create a series of events that will fire their imaginations and reward creative thinking. We are able to offer In The Woods to groups of up to 60 children.
Supported by adults and Alive And Kicking company members we play through a number of “training “ scenarios led by the character Tom Wayfinder before we face The Real Thing in which we explore the outdoor adventure of The Wild Man Of The Woods waking to find that Jack Frost, Old Man Winter and Lady Lackleaf have plotted together to bring Winter back forever. 

Jenny Silver's letter ...

 .... as promised in the Leeds Beckett University Storymakers' Dialogue article The Real Thing.  It's in the Alive And Kicking facebook page.
 
For more information about In The Woods please message Alive And Kicking.

Special offer - a taste of Alive And Kicking

We are looking at new ways of making contact with primary schools in Leeds and the region. If you are a primary school teacher, school governor or PTA member you might like to help us by having a very low cost taster visit from Alive And Kicking.
 
Here’s the idea …. For a total cost of £100 (plus a cup of tea and possibly a biscuit!) we could bring one half day piece from our portfolio to one of your classes if you would invite a small group of teachers from other schools to see us work with your children.
 
We could offer 
A Sideways Look At Cinderella for Reception
The Bottom Of The Bottom Of The Bottom Of The Sea for Reception or Year 1
The Woman At The Top Of The Mountain for Year 3 or Year 4
 
There's more detail in other parts of this website or you could contact us by email at aliveandkicking@ntlworld.com or by ringing 0113 295 8190 or 07775 782603.

Here's a howdeedo

This week the children and parents from St Philip's Primary school in Leeds will be confronted by Lady Lackleaf, Jack Frost and Old Man Winter who have stolen the song, the music and the dance of the woods from The Wild Man. Helped by Tom Wayfinder who knows if they will save the woods from the clutches of Old Man Winter's gang.
