‘Patrice uses drama conventions to create opportunities for pupils to secure their learning in new and deeper ways. Her course opened doors for colleagues which they would not have believed possible. In everything she does, she walks delegates through the materials, and discusses the impact this has on children’s learning. Absolutely brilliant!’
