Year 1 and Year 2 children at Beech House, Bolton School’s Infant School, enjoyed a day of ‘Circusology’ workshops as they developed their balance, perseverance and patience whilst learning a range of exciting circus skills.

The circusology day began with a demonstration of a variety of circus skills from the workshop leader. The children were transfixed as they watched him perform tricks on his unicycle around the hall. By the time he had finished, pupils in all year groups couldn’t wait to have a go at some of the skills for themselves.

They started with something that seemed simple: balancing a peacock feather on its end. However, they quickly found it wasn’t as easy as it looked! They progressed to plate spinning and juggling with scarves, balls and juggling clubs. The children also tried pedal go riding, walking on stilts, dancing with Chinese ribbons, devil stick twirling and poi swinging.

Pupils’ confidence grew throughout their time in the workshops and they felt a great sense of achievement when they mastered a new skill.
