How is a class structured?

Sessions begin with a warm-up game to introduce everybody and get us all concentrating!

The fun continues throughout with activities and games based around our parachute with adults and children playing together.   Once everyone is warmed up and comfortable in the space we move onto our circus inspired activities!   Now we begin to introduce our circus skills, we start with developing our balance and confidence by moving and jumping off a platform creating different shapes with our bodies and learning to land on our feet!   After this we build up an obstacle course, where we climb, crawl, jump, balance and tip toe across a range of circus and specialist early years play equipment.

Once the Children are feeling confident, we will introduce them to our aerial cocoon where they can experience floating and spinning off the ground in order to introduce them to a new experience and sensation.

The games and obstacle course act as a fun way to get children and parents playing, with skills introduced softly on the back of these. Activities and skills are introduced according to age and ability.
