The children were in awe and fits of giggles with the visitor that came to year 2 at Toftwood Federation this week! On Wednesday 14th April, Ben Langley, star of the Great Yarmouth Hippodrome circus and participant of Britain’s Got Talent, entertained each of the year 2 classes with jokes, tricks and also misheard song lyrics!
One of the children said ‘he was so funny that it made my cheeks hurt!’ Another remarked, “he was the funniest man on the planet!”
It is safe to say that this really added an extra smiley boost to our week as well as watching a live performance and understanding how to be a wonderful audience.
His performances took place on the school playground to ensure that all our COVID safe guidelines were followed and it was amazing to have a visitor finally enter our school again! Mrs Pedlow, Head teacher said “It was such a pleasure to have a live performance in the school for the children. They responded so well and felt they had seen a star in their school.”
