"All the children had a fantastic time. X said it was the best party he had ever had! It was lovely to meet you."
"It was great to meet you yesterday – I really enjoyed both training sessions and can see all sorts of possibilities for using the ideas in my daily work."
"Aly is very warm, adaptable and easy to work with. She has lots of energy and enthusiasm, happily works with all primary age-groups and has lots of ideas. I heartily recommend her.”
"Thank you so much for delivering a fabulous hour of lego fun. I have never seen a group of 6 year old boys so quiet and am convinced there was some kind of sorcery at play! A great time had by all."
"I have thoroughly enjoyed all your courses Aly, you manage to present them in such a passionate way. I always come away from your training with not only new skills and knowledge, but with new inspiration and enthusiasm!"
“I hired Alyson Thomsen to focus on the development of communication and language throughout the school, and was extremely pleased with the quality of work that was produced as a direct result of this creative and playful intervention."
"Thanks Aly, all the boys really enjoyed it...including Master Wu! Will look out for your summer workshops, am sure X and some of the others would be interested!"
"I learned that Lego is not just about building the models in the book. There is so much to it and the scope is much wider than I thought."
"We used the expertise of Aly from Bricks2Learn as a vehicle to raise standards in literacy and ICT. It was a highly successful intervention, the senior management team tracking pupil data were extremely pleased with the outcomes and our children thoroughly enjoyed the experience."
"Thank you so much, the children all had a really fab time, they were totally engaged and worked so well together - X absolutely loved it."

"Delivered brilliantly with lots of practical ideas and helpful tips and strategies. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and will now buy the book!"
"Aly facilitates playful and exciting building experiences for us annually, that our children really look forward to."
"I just wanted to say a huge 'thank you' for a fantastic lego party. It was exactly what I was hoping for and the children loved it! I don't know where you get all of your energy from; but it was such a relief when you arrived and took charge of the children!"
"The course has given me a wealth of knowledge to extend my work with children and permission to adapt to meet individual need, which essentially is the whole approach to your training. Your continued support is most valuable as I know that I can email you whenever I’m in doubt!"
"Aly provides really valuable therapeutic work with our most vulnerable children."
"The children had a fantastic time and it was just perfect for X who doesn't like being the centre of attention, but really wanted a party."
"A practical and exciting way to communicate feelings with children. Great, thoroughly enjoyed it - Thanks!
“…Mrs. Thomsen brought technical expertise on building and programming which we could not provide in-house. The stimulus she created really engaged the children and my teaching staff too!"
