Roll up, roll up, the circus is in town!
Today we had a fantastic start to the new half term with a circus skills day! The day started with a whole school assembly where we saw lots of different pieces of equipment and a few tricks. This was then followed by a workshop where we all got to try out the different activities. Some children surprised themselves and the adults with the skills! Activities available were;
*Balancing large peacock feathers

After the workshop we headed back to class for a circus themed day which will continue tomorrow and maybe even the rest of the week as we have had so much fun!
