Stories from the Circus

spinning plates 2 small

Mike Church used circus skills and stories to engage the pupils of The Learning Centre, Glan Y Nant, teaching important life skills and new ways of being creative.

The circus came to the class room with spinning plates across the solar system, synchronised devil stick flipping, wobbling on the balance board and twirling diablo with Lionel the Lion. These helped to develop concentration skills, and the classes supported and encouraged each other while learning new things.

Using role play, the classes explored classic stories from new angles to look at choices and consequences, cross examining and sentencing goldilocks and the boy who pushed Humpty Dumpty off the wall.
