Mathematics Stage 1-3: Focuses on working mathematically across all areas of the syllabus. Problem Solving.
English and Drama: Circus & Storytelling.
Have all the fun of the fair as you join Circular Circus and experience how mathematical concepts are part of everyday life, even at the circus.
The Ringmistress, Heidi Hoops is ready to amaze you with circus tricks of all proportions and dimensions. The show features sensational hoop tricks including; the most, the hardest, the biggest, the smallest, the weirdest, and the most dazzling. Meet all her crazy characters including the kooky magician, the silly strongman and the whacky professor.
Hold on to your seats because she will crack a whip so fast (1236km p/h) that she will break the sound barrier, defy gravity by propelling unusual shapes up into the air, and use chance to create the most original routine possible (1/46,656 combinations). She will also defy logic and squish a humungous number of rather tiny students into a rather large cube, as well as use the age old "magic of numbers" to bend your brain around a corner.
It's a race against the clock, as she only has 45 minutes to complete the show. Students will need to read the time, observe patterns, gather data, and employ their skills of counting, fractions, arithmetic, probability, measurement, co-ordinates and geometry to help Heidi finish on time. She will also need the critical and creative thinking of the older students to help her complete the show’s incredible interactive group routine, The Spectacular Geometric Set.
With loads of audience participation, comedy, magic, rope tricks, illusions, juggling, whip cracking, lasso spinning, fabulous costumes, loads of hula hoops and a spectacular finale (LED Light-up flashing hoops).
This exciting show will get kids excited and curious about maths. The concepts can be explored further in class with the 80 page education kit designed for stage 1 - 3+.
