Acrobats from Casus Circus visited Charles Darwin Primary, on Rose Lane in Norwich, to run a workshop for pupils, who learned how to tumble, climb and balance like the professionals.

The Australian group visited the school, run by the Inspiration Trust, during a visit to Norwich to perform their critically acclaimed show Driftwood at the Adnams Spielgeltent during the Norfolk and Norwich Festival.

Nathaniel Cook, a teacher, said: “The children had a fantastic time testing their acrobatic and balancing skills - which included climbing across a teacher climbing frame above a sea of lava.

“Thank you so much to Casus Circus for their time.”
