PICTURE GALLERY: Clowning around at West Winch Primary School
Clowning around in class is generally frowned upon - but pupils at one West Norfolk school were positively encouraged to play the part during a special day before half-term.
Youngsters at West Winch Primary School arrived dressed in a variety of circus costumes for a whole day of fun and games.
The pupils were treated to a whole day of circus life when a series of workshops were held by specialist company Montana Events which brought all the delights of the big top to the classroom.
After a circus skills performance for the whole school, each year group had its own workshop to discover more about the art of the acrobat and the skills of the clowns.
The children were also given circus equipment, including juggling balls and plate-spinners, to use during breaks and lunchtimes.
