"It really helped engage them in their literacy for the term" - school magic in Bristol

Mike was extremely helpful and accommodating during the booking process. On the day, he arrived with plenty of time to spare and instantly engaged our Year 4 classes (60 children).

Mike was very entertaining and kept the kids (and adults) enthralled with numerous tricks which amazed us all. He played the role of a nervous magician being interviewed for a job as Abdul Kazam’s assistant brilliantly and the kids truly believed it was all real.

It really helped engage them in their literacy for the term. One child said ‘this has been the best day of my life - I have never seen a magician before.’ Another said ‘he was awe-inspiring’ and many now want to learn magic for themselves.

We are really pleased to have worked with Mike and hope to have him back next year as part of our literacy unit on Leon and the Place Between.
