Saxlingham Nethergate Primary School welcomed Circus Ferrel to the school last week, with workshops held over the week and performances at the weekend.

The ticketed shows in the big top on Saturday were held to raise funds for outdoor play equipment and a nature garden at the school.

Executive headteacher Lesley Payne said there had been a 'real buzz of excitement' about returning to school, and that the week had helped nervous pupils build confidence ahead of the new term.

She said: 'It's a memorable start to the new school year for everybody and a wonderful introduction to learning through real experiences for our new reception class - the children will have lots of fun but they'll also be building confidence, making new friends, learning skills and team-building in their new classes.'
