Circus skills with a curriculum theme

Really pleased with the sessions run- David Collins, Deputy Headteacher
Very professional performers and skilled at dealing with schools/children. I am sure we would book you again next year and would not hesitate in recommending your services. The theme worked very well with our teachers/curriculum teaching. The students enjoyed the day. My only criticism is the performers arrived later than i was advised however this did not slow our day.

Queens Jubilee Celebration

We wanted the whole school to take part in something fun for the Queens Jubilee. Shooting Stars came up with a wonderful day filled with workshops. A lively demonstration, which captivated the children, and then plenty of activities for them to try. The ideas for the younger children were fantastically simple - like juggling with scarves - but quite magical. The older children really liked trying their hand at spinning plates or a unicycle. Thank you ever so much.- Jessica Matthew, School Governor

Circus Themed Book Week

A thoroughly enjoyable experience. I got very good feedback from both teachers and pupils. The only real issue was time - there just wasn`t enough. This was really just a taster session for all classes. If I were to book again I would target fewer classes, so that they would have longer sessions. It made a great start to our book week, the theme being The Circus and helped to encourage lively discussion, which then led into some super writing. Thankyou.- G. Wright, Literacy Coordinaor

Circus Skills Fun Day

We had another great day with Jebb and with a bit of a squeeze managed to fit 5 classes into one day! The children were captivated and couldnt wait to try the equipment themselves. I would recommend that people spread out the time they have booked and not try to cram too many classes in as we did this time. The children would have been happy to have longer to explore but that was down to us and not Shooting Stars. Jebb was, as ever friendly, helpful, polite and flexible really fitting into our routine. We will be putting all the pictures on our website and would definitely book with Shooting Stars again. The booking process and communication was very efficient and we would like to thank Jebb and all those involved in making it a great day!- Nicola Johnson, Key Stage One Coordinator/Class Teacher

Some quotes from parents:
"We loved the whole session from beginning to end!\"
"We enjoyed all of it! The children were interested all the way through. I enjoyed being involved with the kids as they learnt new skills.\"
"The instructor was polite and patient and the children listened and learnt. Excellent session!"
Please pass on a massive thank you to Nick. He was very professional but the most striking thing was just how much he seemed to enjoy his job. I think it was this that captured the attention of the kids and parents and encouraged them to keep going even when they found things tricky.- Carrie Palmer Fry, Extended Schools Coordinator

We would have liked to have had more time for the children to use the eqipment at the end e.g. to explore the tightrope, unicycle etc independently. We thought the day was such a success, we booked Shooting Stars for Year 6 a few weeks later.- Gilly Clifford, Teacher

Teacher/Staff training to enable them to run 'After School Clubs' using circus skills.

It would be great if you could provide a teaching resource. Even something as simple as a DVD of skills would be great. Teachers often go to training days and want to take it back to school. They may do a whole school teacher inset themselves which they could use your resources for. They also may have a gap between the training and their delivery of the circus skills activities in school so resource cards or a DVD can help to refresh their mind. - Carly Owen, Partnership Development Manager

Please can you pass on our thanks to Jebb for all his hard work when he came into our school on Tuesday and Wednesday this week to teach our children so many different circus skills.

He was absolutely fantastic with the children and enabled them to learn so much as well as having lots of fun. We would certainly recommend him and your company to the schools within Wandsworth and hopefully we will be able to invite him back on many more occasions. All the children have spoke highly of him and want to know when he will be back!! Could you also let him know that he has left the feathers here and will assume he will want to pick them up at some point.

Many thanks again and we hope to work with your company and Jebb again in the near future.- Samantha Colburn, Teacher

We invited circus skills to come to our school to spend 50 minutes with each of our year 7 classes, and one session with ten students from all years. it was a fantastic day, all the students were engaged and challenged. The lesson pace was excellent. To really get the most out of the session it is good to have a person there all day to help on a balancing activity. Our school had our ssco there all day helping which freed up the instructor to add another exiting activity. I definatly recommend shooting stars circus skills!- Vivki Garrett
