Learning to Learn
There is more to a Splats Circus day than meets the eye. The pupils are amazed and inspired by the magical equipment. Spinning plates, scarves, feathers, diabolos are all chosen to challenge the pupils and experience of success BUT at Splats our teachers aim for more . . . I designed the days as part of my dissertation in PE on how to get more pupils to achieve success in sports by using skills such as juggling and circus. This has developed over the last 25 years into Splats unique learning to learn program. Pupils not only achieve success who may have found coordination difficult but those who already enjoy sports refine their movements, learn the value of gentle effort essential in circus and all sports and understand the value of mistakes and how to learn from them. Our expert Splats teachers use our carefully planned program to help pupils to challenge their perceptions, teach and observe each other and to work as a group to achieve success. So if you are looking for a circus day that offers much more than the wonderful skills themselves, please drop us a line to find out more.
