I booked Captain Dan for my 2s room and Nursery class to link in with our Pirate Topic. He managed the day well doing a range of activities with the children, including some fun facts and treasure map drawing. The children loved the interactive outdoor session best and are still talking about it several weeks later. A good day was had by all and I would definitely recommend him!
Captain Dan Tastic provided an incredible day long workshop for three classes (2 x Reception & 1 x Year One). With such a wide array of activities, props, stories, historical item and games the children were entirely mesmerized by the Captain! So much attention to detail and he made every child feel special, even leaving them with treasure of their own to keep. Will definitely be booking him again next year!
We had heard great things about Captain Dan Tastic's workshops, but he exceeded our wildest dreams! The way he was completely involved with the children on their level, they were 100% engaged throughout the whole day. They haven't stopped talking about him for weeks!
This was Captain Dan Tastic's first visit to our setting (and we're sure it won't be the last!) Dan adapted very well to the small awkward space we had available for him to use. He performed in front of a large group of 90 children and was very skilled at keeping them fully engaged throughout. The children loved joining in with all the actions, and he included lots of movement to keep our physical learners very motivated. The show was a great success, very entertaining and lots of fun.
We are looking forward to Captain Dan Tastic sailing into our setting again later this year!
Ahoy there Captain Dan! Dan came to our primary school last week to kick start our new topic of Pirates and he certainly got us off to a great start. The morning was spent finding out about a range of Pirate information. Dan is very knowledgeable on the subject and was fantastic at communicating with the children. He made them (and the teachers) laugh, showed them artifacts and got them completely involved. They were spellbound! In the afternoon we had all 60 children in the hall and Dan had no problems keeping them entertained with games, songs and stories. It was pretty mad at times and the children absolutely loved it. Many described it as 'the best day ever' and we got some fantastic writing about Pirates the following day. This is the second year that Dan has visited us, and we would definitely book again next year.
