This week we welcomed back our partners from Lost in Translation circus. After all the disruption of the past 18 months, it was great to have them back in school and leading the skills workshops as part of our new PPA carousel.
We had a great time today, we played lots of games to warm up and stretch, then we went straight into the planning of our final show. We learnt that it is hard to stay in time and that we have already learnt so amazing things. We worked hard and can’t wait to show our final performance to the rest of the school.
Today we started to look at the acrobatic side of circus, we played some games and then started to work. We managed to balance on each other (it was about trust and finding the right spot). We then went on to work on tumbling. Its fun but we are beginning to realize that some things will challenge us.
Today we started working wit Lost in Translation on our circus skills, we had Matt and he helped us to warm up and practice the shapes we would use. It was great fun and we finished off by making a huge pyramid. Looking forward to next week.
It is now the turn of Year 6 to work with Lost in Translation. Over the next 11 weeks they will undertake training in a range of circus skills with coaches from our circus partners at Lost in Translation. At the end of term they will plan and deliver a school showcase where they can share their work with the rest of the school.
Today we went straight into planning our routines for the next session, we are really near the end now and it is amazing to see what we have achieved. It was hard to remember each move in our routine and the order we each went in but, after some practice we are nearly there. Can’t wait for the actual performance 🙂
We started planning our routines today. That meant that each group was doing something different. It was inspiring to see the lifts and balancing that we achieved. Next week will be amazing.
We got straight into it today, we practiced our forward and backward rolls, (it’s all about the neck and hips). Then we practiced lifting and carrying each other, with different degrees of ease. We had a really super session and our teachers are very proud of what we are accomplishing.
We worked hard today, we started by practicing our different shapes . After that we worked on different games that help with concentration. We managed to get a human pyramids 3 levels high. We can’t wait till the next session.
Today was action packed! We started off by building our teamwork skills, working in different pairs we carried each other in various ways, such as piggy backs and wheelbarrows. We also leapfrogged over each other and practiced our other growing skills. We have learned so much already.
