His circus acts included juggling, horse riding, the waltz, jumping through fire, jumping from height and tight rope walking. We re-enacted each of these in our PE lesson and hope you enjoy watching our videos. The background music is 'For the benefit of Mr. Kite' which was written and performed by The Beetles in his memory.
