Roll Up! Roll Up! The Circus Is In Town

Our Circus Creative Week was a wonderful way to come together and share a topic across the whole school.  The week started with a whole school assembly where we had a chance to admire all the children's costumes and have a sneaky giggle at some of the teachers.

Throughout the week there were several visitors bringing their own unique take on the circus to Windmill School.  On Tuesday 'West End in Schools' visited and a performer helped each class to workshop a piece inspired by Pinocchio's visit to the circus.

On Wednesday, Coral Rumble, a published poet entertained us with a poetry reading and then played some language games with the children before helping them write their own circus poetry.

We were able to engage a wide range of professionals to help us during Creative Week because of all the wonderful sponsorship the children raised during their Zumba challenge so thank you very much if you contributed to this. 

As well as professionals we had a host of volunteers generously giving up their time to make the week extra special.  Our volunteers organised; crocheting, crafts, cake decorating, pizza making, dancing and piano playing.  We all had a very exciting week which is sure to be remembered for a long time.
