FOR THREE days the circus came to Heron Way Primary School as part of the school’s work on values and linked to being creative and taking a risk.

The school community have been working with the children on their values and on this occasion the children are being encouraged to face difficult challenges and work outside their comfort zones.

Organised into small groups, the children worked alongside a skilled circus performer and learnt how to juggle, spin a plate, balance feathers, use stilts and even walk the tightrope.
