This term the nursery children are learning all about the exciting and colourful world of the travelling circus. One of the first circus skills we decided to learn was juggling. We used silky scarves because we liked the way they shimmered in the light, and also they are easier to catch. We watched a demonstration of clowns juggling on the big screen, then it was our turn to have a go. The music started and we threw our scarves in the air and tried really hard to catch them. We even wore our very own big red clown noses.
