"The project has had a huge impact in the EYFS. The team have been so excited by the books and teaching sequences. It has been instrumental in giving more confidence and inspiration to our teachers."

Headteacher, 2017

“Children were excited and engaged with the activities in the teaching sequence and the high quality texts. They were able to really get to know the characters at a deeper level and the slow reveal of the events in the stories kept them hooked."
