How a Circus Skills day works

Assembly

A Splats Circus day starts with a fun circus skills assembly for the whole school for the Splats teacher to show off their skills and for the pupils and some of the teachers to join in.

Circus skills scarf juggling classClasses

up to 7 classes of circus skills. We teach all the skills below, adapted to age and level of the group. It is suitable for nursery through to Secondary, Special Needs and adults. Maximum no per lesson is 35 unless otherwise agreed.

Options

We can teach up to 7 classes in a day or work with a group for a full day. We can also put on our Circus Town show in a day with the pupils performing at the end of the day.

Resources 

All our circus days come with Circus teaching materials including History of circus skills, History of circus toys, Circus teaching book, Circus colour in book, Circus town show and our circus town script for the pupils to perform. If you are working on a circus project or topic also see our Circus project page.

Family workshop 

Every Circus skills day can end with a free family workshop for the children to show off their new skills to their mums and dads, brothers and sisters. Circus skills are all about learning and passing on skills and our family workshop is a great way for the pupils to do this.

Scarf juggling

Our lessons start with scarf juggling. They move so slowly they are a great way for young children to learn to catch and older to learn the juggling pattern.

One of our favourite challenges is the feather balance. On one finger, the hand, back of the arm and eventually on the nose, chin or head.

FAQs

WHERE DO YOU TRAVEL TO ?

We travel across mainland Britain.

DO YOU NEED ANYTHING ELSE?

We need a sound system and although not essential access to any lighting or staging you have..

HOW MANY OF YOU ARE THERE?

It is always one Splats artist per session of up to 35 pupils. Please talk to us if you have more pupils.

DO WE NEED TO DO ANY PREPARATION BEFORE THE DAY?

All the days are designed to be self contained i.e. you don’t need to do anything before the day. There is a teaching pack where you will have props and masks you can make out of card, paper, paint and glue. You may want to order stock.

WHAT TIME IS THE SHOW?

The show is performed thirty minutes before the end of your day so it can coincide with the finish of the day.

DO YOU NEED THE HALL??

We do need the hall all day except for lunch of course.

HOW MANY MEMBERS OF OUR STAFF DO YOU NEED FOR SUPPORT?

We need the staff ratio that you would normally have plus our Splats teacher. Your staff will be responsible for the pupils tertiary care.

CAN WE PERFORM THE SHOW OURSELVES AGAIN AFTER THE DAY?

Once Splats have created the show with the school on the date given, then the booking school has the right to perform the show twice the same term but must credit verbally, in programs, posters, websites, newspapers, social media, recorded media and all communications that the show is \’Created by Splats Entertainment.\’ At the end of term the copyright reverts to Splats Entertainment and the school will need to apply if they wish to perform the show again. Please speak to Splats office for further advice.

Splats Make a Play days are available UK wide. We do not charge for travel. All our teachers carry CRB checks and we have full public liability insurance
