Circus

Five fun forces activities
< Back to Workshops

Your pupils will learn how to balance clowns on a piece of string; see how far their foam rockets go; use different types of magnets to move a creature along a maze; make spinning tops and see what patterns are made and bounce marbles using different sized tubs!

Circus consists of five practical hands-on activities loosely related to the circus, which all your children can enjoy. The children rotate through each activity in groups, investigating a different type of force.

For lower KS2, the activities are extended.
Our aim is for your children to have lots of fun and enjoyment in:

  • investigating
  • making
  • experimenting
  • comparing

This workshop needs to take place in the school hall.
