"Thank you so much for your hard work, including the inset, which will have a lasting effect on how maths is taught in school".
Head teacher, Cravenwood School.
"The children really enjoyed the day. It was great to find another way into maths that will help them in their learning. We've had lots of great ideas and can now use them in our lessons. The children were mesmerised by the performance. We thought the dancers really interacted well with the children and held their interest throughout. The performance was great for all the year groups, something for all of them all the way through. Thank you, a great day!”
Teacher from Tennyson Road Infant School.
"We thoroughly enjoyed your dancers' visit and our children went home on that day totally enthused. On the back of I managed a highly successful maths week and would not hesitate to recommend you to other maths co-ordinators and schools. We all thought the performances were very well pitched and the children were spellbound! They have continued to be enthused about maths ever since and will remember what they did for years to come. Thank you.”
Helen Teacher from Crazies Hill CE School.
“The staff and children always enjoy working with Dance Equation. The work contributes to our arts, PE and mathematics curriculum and is great fun for all involved. A new member of staff also remarked how it contributed to assessment. Children have been observed continuing the dances during playtimes!"
Janice Porter, Head teacher, Ryton Community Infant School, Gateshead.
“Just wanted to say what a fantastic day we had! The performance was pitched exactly right for our pupils - simple, visual, clear, engaging - and even pupils who normally have very poor attention skills were captivated by it. The girls handled the workshops very skilfully too and throughout the day staff kept giving me very positive feedback. And finally the CPD session was just right for our rather exhausted staff! I`ve certainly got lots of ideas for dance lessons with my class, something which I don`t generally feel very confident about. Back in class my children loved trying to make the number shapes with their bodies, and looking for shapes on the playground.”
Many, many thanks, Trish and all of us at Pictor Special School.
"Feedback from the children and staff was especially positive. Everyone said what a valuable and enjoyable experience it was for our children. I was also very impressed with the attitude of the dancer who came to school – she was very professional. Dance Equation would certainly be something we would look into having again as our children enjoyed the experience so much."
