  1. I met with Mrs Clare Holt on Tuesday 31.1.17 at Priestthorpe Primary School in Bingley. I was very impressed in how Mrs Holt delivered her Science Workshop with year 4 children (I volunteer at the school). The task set involved them working as a team with an adult. We were sent to various parts of the building and asked to talk about certain types of articles that suppply electricity and the importance of these in our daily lives. The children were very enthusiastic and Mrs Holt really grabbed their attention. I thoroughly enjoyed being part of this Workshop and found it very beneficial. I would highly recommend her expertise and experience.
