The Circus is in Town

This unit has a range of activities centred on some of the main features of the circus, such as people and animals.

The learners’ awareness of circus themes is developed and embedded through a wide range of carefully planned and personalised sensory experiences such as poetry, stories, songs, musical experiences and art.

These activities are suggestions only. You can adapt or extend them to suit your learners’ age, cognitive ability and specific needs.

Please note: before beginning an activity, check that all the resources are suitable for your individual learners. For example, some essential oils may not be appropriate for young children and others may have contraindications for learners with complex medical needs, life-threatening conditions and/or epilepsy. It is advisable to consult a trained therapist before using essential oils.
