Yr 4 Circus Workshop

8th January 2020
To immerse us into our Power of Reading book this term, Year 4 had a wonderful circus day with Lucas Jet, a circus performer based in Bristol. To kick start the day, Lucas put on our very own circus show and got lots of the children involved in his tricks. This got the children very excited for the workshop where they learnt how to balance peacock feathers on various parts of their body, spin plates, use a diablo, juggle and use flower sticks. All the skills took a lot of resilience and perseverance, but everyone was able to master new talents. As it turns out, Year 4 are a brilliant bunch of circus performers and some children even managed to choreograph their own circus routines! At the end of the day, all the children were involved in a performance where they were able to demonstrate to some parents/carers all the amazing tricks they’d learnt throughout the day. We hope this day will be a great inspiration for our literacy focus this term!
