Dear Teacher

Since returning to schools we have noticed a drop in the pupils coordination levels.

Splats would like to help play catch up by running our juggling day, designed to boost and challenge the pupils.

We are sure it is just temporary as the brain is malleable and they will learn quickly again and we would like to help you bring simple skills that can be included in your class room and playground tools.

Aim to land the ball on your head.

Gentle effort

This is a great trick to show you how to use a very gentle effort and the results will amaze you.

Gently lean forwards and put your hands behind you. Voila!

Pupils learn to use the effort necessary when juggling. This is true in any sport, and through juggling you can really begin to understand how to relax and use a gentle appropriate effort

Learn to drop

it will help you relax and focus on your throws. Dropping is a vital part of the learning process. it feeds the brain with information.

THE DROP is a vital part of the learning process. By dropping the ball you learn to adjust your movement and get closer next time. In fact when we teach we encourage the pupils to not let it drop. Focus on the throws.

Partner juggling

Partner work is one of the most enjoyable things when learning to juggle and it will help us understand how to teach and improve out understanding.

Break it down

Juggling is a great way to show pupils how to break a seemingly complicated skill down to its smallest parts and how by doing this the impossible becomes possible.

Learning to juggle is an amazing educational tool. Stephen Richards who designed these day first taught juggling as part of his PE dissertation. It showed that pupils who didn’t usually participate in sport would find success with juggling and be able to use it as a way in to success in other sports. For those who already succeed it helps refine movements, use of appropriate effort and improves coordination. Splats Skill Play learning approach is unique to Splats. A Circus Lesson is always fun but it can be so much more effective when combining it with learning lessons.

Shows in a day

  • Whole School activity
  • Suitable for Key Stages 1, 2, 3
  • Teaching materials
  • Interactive show or workshops
  • Confident, independent and creative learners

Organisation -We can teach up to 4 groups in a day. The pupils perform the show with the splats teacher who acts as the narrator. This helps cement the whole play together and of course provides a cue for the pupils. The Splats director brings props, pieces of costume and music/sound effects.

Performance – The workshops are active, fun and a real challenge for all, created with physical theatre, movement, circus, dance and scripted character acting. As we learn the show and perform it in just one day, pupils are up on stage before they have any time to think about nerves.

Please do not hesitate to drop us a line to talk through your specific needs and aims for the day, we are here to help. ;0)
