Circus Skills Day


We hope that you are all enjoying the Health Week activities that were shared with you on Monday. As today would have been Sports Day for all the classes across the school, we have decided that learning today will focus on being active, trying something new and developing skills. Choose two or three ideas to try. You may get time outside to practise, you may have to practise indoors, you may only have a small amount of time, you may have all afternoon..don’t worry, just go with what works for you and your family.


Here are some ideas:


Juggling – against a wall or in the air             Diablo spinning           Skipping – try doing different tricks with one short rope or as a family group using one long rope          Acrobatics          Balancing            Baton twirling              Hoola Hooping- try using two hoops at a time    Yo-Yo tricks        Mime

Hand Walking – how far can you go?             Puppetry             Elastics – use elastic bands                  Magic tricks – loads of ideas online        Trampolining Ventriloquism    Stilt walking       Being the Ringmaster           Clown makeup              Strength testing            Hat Manipulation – look it up!


You will have lots of your own ideas. Be creative – if you don’t have juggling balls, what could you use instead? Just check with an adult first!


Put on a show for your family. Plan a circus event with your brothers and sisters with your parents as the audience. Maybe an adult in your home could showcase their special talent. Make invitations.


We look forward to seeing and hearing all about your new circus skills so let us know how you got on. If you have time send us a photo or write about it.

Whatever you choose to do, have fun and enjoy a different kind of Sports Day!
