YOUNGSTERS got to try their hand at juggling, balancing and plate spinning during the summer holidays.

A special circus workshop saw them clowning around for a morning at Spring Meadow Primary School in Dovercourt.

Children aged between six and 12 got to take part in games and activities for co-ordination, balancing and drawing and colouring.

Mandy Rose, of the Grand Theatre of Lemmings, who ran the class, said: “It was a lovely day and they learnt some good skills.

“We had children on stilts with no hands, people on unicycles, and people working on the Pedal Go.

“They all got to try all the skills and then choose one they wanted to work on.”
