Circus Optical offers an exciting range of circus activities such as juggling,
stilt-walking, balance, mime and clowning.

Why have circus in your school?
Firstly, circus is fun! It can bring colour and excitement to your school and this can be used as a motivating force right across the curriculum. Many primary and middle school teachers have already realized its potential as a springboard for thematic work. Secondly, circus can promote learning development in the following areas:-
INTELLECTUAL:
Perseverance is the key to acquisition of many skills. It can improve concentration and attention span. Children are made aware of their own learning process as their perseverance is reinforced by tangible improvements at every stage.
PHYSICAL:
Coordination, balance, reflex, timing and rhythm are improved, as are eye-hand coordination, laterality and tracking (through juggling in particular.)
EMOTIONAL:
Children's confidence and self-esteem can be enhanced.
SOCIAL:
They are encouraged to trust and cooperate, particularly during stilt work and acrobatics. All communication skills are fostered.
AESTHETIC:
Circus is a great stimulus for creativity in all aspects of language, drama and art.
Lastly, circus has appeared in many different cultures throughout history. It has a universal appeal and thus can be incorporated into an equal opportunities curriculum.
