PUPILS at Abbots Green Primary School have been enjoying a taste of the circus and honing their reporting skills.

Children in Year 4 were tasked with writing an article on the week which ran circus themed events with the winning piece printed in the Bury Free Press.

Youngsters in the Jaguars class ran their own Abbots Green Gazette under the guidance of class teacher Nick Wells, a former Anglia Newspapers sports editor.

The pupils had their own press passes and were given tips on writing before interviewing Circus Ferrell owner Martin Taylor.

Emily Plumridge, nine, was chosen to be featured in the paper and Mr Wells said: “It was very encouraging how engaged the children were and how well they did.”
