During this time, during which time he has taught children from four to eleven years in a wide range of schools in Grimsby and Cleethorpes, trying to share with them his passion for experiential learning. Nigel is also a Methodist Lay Preacher and has used his communication skills in all-age worship as well as numerous school assemblies. He hopes that the stories he has used in schools and churches might reach and inspire a wider audience through their publication. Nigel lives in Grimsby with his wife, Jackie, their children Nicola and Jonathan, and Megan the dog.
Every school should have one of these books. The stories are easy to listen to and children remain engrossed throughout the assembly, even those who find listening difficult. The reason for this is that they can relate to the scenario depicted by the story. An excellent resource and certainly a 'must have' for both KS1 and KS2.' Christine Taylor
