Dogsthorpe Infant School presents...


I'm sure most of you have seen 'The Greatest Showman' - the story of the Barnum & Bailey circus show that many people called 'The Greatest Show On Earth'.

The first circus was performed over 250 years ago when a man called Philip Astley held a show on a field called 'Ha'penny Hatch' which overlooked the River Thames in London. 

Now each circus around the world is a series of daring performances by acrobats, animal trainers and clowns. All taking place inside a circus big top.


The Big Top is a huge round colourful tent with flags flying above it. Its height being high enough for the trapeze acts and large enough round for the animals to perform and for the jugglers to perform and for the clowns to throw custard pies at each other, 

Your LEGO challenge today (should you be brave enough to accept it) is to build a circus big top tent out of LEGO.
