Britain’s Got Talent star teaches juggling

On Thursday the 11th of Feb Merlin Cadogan, as seen at the Milky Way and on Britain’s Got Talent, visited Park School to lead a Tutorial Session for our Year 7 pupils.  After showing off some of his amazing skills in our Assembly, he spent a lesson with each of our Year 7 Tutor groups. During these sessions he broke 3 ball juggling down into very simple steps, with every pupil working cooperatively with each other and individually. With some groups he was also able to teach them the basics of contact juggling, which none of us had done before. 
 
Merlin himself summed up the day:  “...it was great fun and very rewarding seeing your students engaging and learning so quickly. I honestly think that they all improved and got something out of the day.  I would love to come back and many thanks for a great day”
 
The pupils were a credit to our school and we hope that they all enjoyed the experience. We look forward to seeing how the pupils progress over the rest of the year.
