On Friday 23rd January the Circus came to Year 1! Our new Topic in Year 1 is Circus so everyone dressed up like a circus performer or a spectator at the circus. Our classrooms look like a circus tent and even our teachers were dressed as clowns! We watched a video of the Cirque de Soleil Circus while we enjoyed popcorn. We began learning about all the different circus performers and then drew pictures of them and labelled them. We also role-played circus performers. We tried juggling and balancing plates on sticks and we tried on clown wigs and pretended to be clowns. In this unit we will create Circus artwork, learn about the history of the circus, and write poems about the circus. What a great Circus Day we had!
