"Thank you very much for all that you did with us on Monday.
The children were very enthusiastic about what they did and have been talking a lot about it since!
The skills you taught really worked well with our school value of resilience and lots of children explained how they kept trying to do things until they could. Their sense of satisfaction was lovely to see.
I hope to be able to invite you back again for more sessions. Thanks.'"

Feedback from Kids
"It was perfect! I loved balancing the peacock feathers and walking on the tightrope."
Kiana, Year 3, Southfield Park Primary, Jan 2013
"This week in Year 5 we had a special visit from Mr. Veale, who led a very exciting workshop on circus skills. We began by learning how to juggle with coloured scarves, which were ideal for us beginners as they fell so slowly to the ground. We also had a go at plate spinning, feather balancing, diabolos and even some tight rope walking!"
Liam, Year 5, Bishop Gilpin Primary School
"It was so, so exciting. I liked juggling colourful scarves and balancing feathers."
