TWE had supported the academy in 2014/2015 with writing, having a huge impact on teaching and learning in Years 2 and 4. The academy approached Third Wave and it was agreed that an outstanding practitioner would spend a week working in year 6 on suspense writing. Jemma immediately engaged the Year 6 pupils through her expertise enthusiasm and expectation. She used games to enable the pupils to have fun and learn. Her use of images meant that the pupils could work collaboratively to gather voca

Thank you for the Reading training you provided us with at the start of term, Sept 2016. The staff were buzzing with ideas and, as I hoped, everyone got something different from it, so lots of different things being tried out at the moment. You even hooked XXX, which isn't always easy! Will get back in touch next time I need reading training, and definitely for a revision planning session with Year 6 in the run up to SATs.

Thank you so, so much for such an amazing and insightful day today. The knowledge you have given me and helped me to secure is so very valuable. I can not thank you enough. It is amazing that you can leave after a few hours and feel no stone has been left unturned. Furthermore, I feel very enthusiastic about the future of my grammar teaching.

As a teach first teacher I have really enjoyed the support from TWE and I have learned a lot. Jemma demonstrated a number of different approaches to various literacy activities, and explained the thinking behind them. She also modelled a number of classroom management techniques and left some resources to use in future lessons. Overall it was a very useful experience as I have already used some of the techniques in my own practice. I look forward to working more with Third Wave in the future.

" The teachers that come on the programmes feel better about themselves, it makes them feel re-impassioned about teaching and better informed about the craft of teaching. That means that children in classrooms are getting a better deal, and that’s what we’re all here for. I just think that’s hugely exciting to be part of ".
