As a grand finale to a procedural text unit our students were excited to perform a Grand Magic Circus Show! They wrote ‘How to’ texts involving card tricks, acrobatics, juggling skills and more. They then turned these into performance pieces. Our show was complete with clowns, ventriloquists, disappearing acts and, the most daring of all stunts, the sawing a woman in half trick (involving two cardboard boxes and two very small children). We strung up a colourful parachute in the corner of our room for our circus tent and Miss Purcell, prac student extraordinaire, and her team decorated our very own ticket booth. Friends and family were invited to our show to be dazzled and amazed.
