PE and Games, with a difference!
There will always be those that don’t enjoy PE and Games! – Those that forgot their kit!! Circus is an excellent alternative form physical exercise that can really inspire and enthuse those that can’t bear the thought of mainstream sports.
We can offer stage performances and interactive performances for assemblies. An excellent and entertaining way to wake up your school!
Communication Skills, Literacy and Numeracy
Shaun recently developed and ran a 7 week course for teenagers. The course was built into the Core National Curriculum for literacy and communication skills. Learners not only juggled and learned circus skills they also improved their basic skills. The best thing about this was that they did not mind speaking, listening and writing because it was a fun and worthwhile activity.
We can offer taster workshops as a one off for a large number of learners over the week or week long, in depth, workshops where students train to use, improve and specialise in equipment working to wards a goal.
We can gear our activities to meet the needs and abilities of your group.
