  • “My daughter visited you at The Footprint with Ambleside Primary yesterday. When I went to collect her from school she was absolutely 'full of it'. She thoroughly enjoyed her time with you and talked about you personally and the things that you said and the things that they did. She mentioned the dens, the Robin red breast story and Popcorn making. She was very proud of her necklace too. Evelyn's words were "We've had so much fun today Mummy, much better than normal lessons in the classroom" If only they could do more! This morning she asked me "Is it just a normal day today at school" She was disappointed that it was!! Thank you so much for giving her such a wonderful experience, you clearly have a gift. ”
