Circus skills taught to Burchetts Green students on special treat day

The circus came to visit Burchetts Green Infant School and taught the pupils some tricks of the trade.

 On Tuesday pupils at the Burchetts Green Road school in all years took part in various workshops which included learning how to tightrope walk and spin plates on sticks.

Kevin the Clown entertained pupils throughout the day as well as balloon creationist Mr Dali, who made a balloon animal for each child to take home.

Headteacher Delia Sheppard said: “We had a really lovely day. It was really enjoyable with lots of different activities to do.”

The circus workshops were held as a treat day for the pupils following six weeks of teaching around a circus theme. Each six weeks the school changes theme with subjects relating to the theme to make learning fun.
