It was a brilliant day and the pupils from Reception to Y6 had a great time. I would love to have an after school club or possibly a parents event in the future.

Circus Skills Fun Day

The children really enjoyed the session and it got them mixing and talking and co-operating really well. I would recommend it as an "ice breaker" session eg First day at new school etc- Nicky Banks, Teacher

The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and really felt a wonderful sense of achievment.
The progressive levels in each discipline allowed them all to acieve which was fabulous for self-esteem.
The final performance was remarkable & the level of skill after only several sessions practices was amazing.
The children felt special & enjoyed the support of their peers. They also enjoyed showing off some of their new found skills to thier peers back at school - a mutually enjoyable experience.
Thank you for a super week.- Phil Brown, Class Teacher

9-10 Years:
The children were able to develop personal qualities as they tried out the equipment ie. Perseverance, patience, PE skills, balancing and co-ordination.

10-11 Years:
Very good - excellent delivery and ensured all children on task. Refreshing for teacher to be able to have a go rather than just supervise! - Mrs L Myers, Headteacher

Both I and my children realy enjoyed ourselves. We all found that over the days, we met new people and more importantly we all bonded. I was pleased to recieve my certificate for ball bounce juggling, but even more pleased to be called 'cool' by the children. It was a nice experience to be 'taught' with the children intead of 'teaching' them, we all learnt alot from each other.

Visit/s: 14/1/05,

The session was excellent, all the children were involved, all were excited and all were striving to do their best. They learnt lots of new skills and they gained in confidence as the session progressed. What pleased me especially was that children who are less able academically shone & their self-esteem increased enormously. The session produced lots of discussion and gave many ideas for various aspects of both literacy and numeracy. Please come again for a week!- Mrs S. Fitt, Headteacher

Yr 5N. Excellent. Would have enjoyed even more time learning skills. Very enjoyable.
