How a Circus Skills day works
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

The Circus Skills we teach
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.
Peacock feather balance
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.
We then teach a variety of tricks with one and two balls leading up to the three ball cascade juggling pattern.
Our plate spinning challenge works for all ages, from spinning on the finger to spinning from the stick and then balancing it on the chin.
We then teach the art of poi spinning a great coordination challenge
We then teach spinning, throwing and catching of a diabolo plus for the expert some more fancy tricks.
Great rhythm challenge teaching delicacy of touch and timing

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.
