Some of the activities have an extension part (Extension activity) which makes it possible to study the contents in depth, depending on the groups ability.

By chance, Tom will nd a very special book; every time he opens it, they hear the typical fanfare of the circus. Also, this book contains a key. It will allow them to open up a chest lled with objects belonging to the world of circus. They both, excited, give free rein to their imagination and turn the library into a beautiful village square where, supposedly, a magic circus big top has just been set up. Tom and Lucy play at being all the typical circus characters; and so Lucy turns into a charming ringmaster who, as a master of ceremonies, presents each performance which will take place in the circus ring. Tom will play the incredible magician Houdini, full of magic tricks, each one more surprising. Lucy will step on top of a rope, defying gravity, and she will walk along it as a professional tight rope walker with only the help of an umbrella. Tom will play a brave elephant tamer, ready to show that he is the animals best friend and that its very important to treat them kindly.
