Churchfields Infants School, South Woodford, London
" Many, many thanks to you and the team. We had a wonderful day with Drew. We book lots of experiences for our Reception children, and this was one of the best. Drew was so natural with the children and they responded really well to him. It was fantastic to see the children learn new skills so quickly due to the quality of his teaching and his engaging manner. I loved seeing children come into their own and feel proud of their achievements "

We’ve had lots of positive feedback and there’s some great photos that I will be sure to share with you as soon as I can! I hope you’ve all had a chance to rest and enjoy the sunshine "

Brain Training

"Complex tasks such as juggling produce significant changes to the structure of the brain, according to scientists at Oxford University. In the journal, Nature Neuroscience, the scientists say they saw a 5% increase in white matter - the cabling network of the brain." In brief, learning a new skill such as Juggling can hard wire our brains to work better and faster! Circus skills help develop and improve concentration skills. This is particularly evident in those children with shorter attention spans. When we run Circus skills workshops in schools the teachers are often amazed that one or more children who usually have a problem concentrating are doing better than anyone else in the class! Learning Circus skills also offers great benefits in terms of physical co-ordination and physical fitness. Circus workshops fit very well into the school curriculum under PE and co-ordination development. In fact there are many areas where Circus workshops offer great opportunities for curriculum enrichment.

Activities such as Circus skills have been used with great success as an educational tool, as an aid to learning as well as therapeutically with children at risk and with children with special needs. Autistic children have been observed to respond particularly well to Circus skills in schools. Circus skills are an opportunity for children and adults to discover and develop skills such as Concentration, Information retention, Concept visualisation, hand eye co-ordination and self awareness. These skills can then be used in many other settings including social situations and in conventional educational settings whilst learning the core subjects.
