It's a real pleasure to see that special moment when a pupil finally manages to spin a plate. Teaching children that there is a value in failure. Particularly in a world where everything is available at the click of a button, it feels more important than ever to find new ways to engage children in different ways of using their brain and their body.

Why would a school book a circus skills visit from Lucas Jet?
Circus skills play a vital role in nurturing confidence and fostering a growth mindset among pupils. Here's how: Overcoming Challenges: Learning circus skills involves mastering challenging feats, such as juggling, diabolo or unicycling. Whilst our sessions are often brief, pupils will show signs of progression and they experience a sense of accomplishment, boosting their self-assurance and belief in their abilities. Resilience and Perseverance: Circus skills demands perseverance. Pupils must practice and endure through failures and falls. This resilience cultivates a growth mindset by teaching them that improvement comes through effort and learning from mistakes. Positive Reinforcement: Encouragement and positive feedback from Lucas, the teachers and peers are an integral part of our circus day. This reinforcement fosters a growth mindset by emphasizing the value of effort, practice, and improvement. Briefly, circus skills empower pupils to develop self-confidence by overcoming challenges, building resilience, and embracing a growth mindset. The lessons learned extend beyond the big top, benefitting their approach to learning and life in general. Plus it's just a really fun day for the whole school, pupils and staff alike.
