"I loved meeting the children at Woodberry Down and experiencing their enthusiasm about reading a story that reflected something of the world they know. The quality of their work around The Other Side of Truth is outstanding! The way the children have engaged with

the novel so creatively and thoughtfully is also a tribute to the way their teachers

have ‘led’ them into the story through such a lively cross-curricular approach.

How I would have loved to join them on their ‘detective’ journey from Victoria Station to the ‘London College of Art’ on the Number 36 Bus!" Beverley Naidoo

"Major Taylor’s remarkable story really grips youngsters and opens their eyes to a significant period in history. We're delighted to see new life breathed into Major Taylor's legacy. These lesson plans offer

effective teaching tools to build students’ skills for discovering and thinking critically about the life and times of the 1899 world cycling champion, who faced powerful racial prejudice. The materials on young car racer Lewis Hamilton help make the history relevant to today’s world."
