We know that many do not have a gym or hall large enough to teach gymnastics. We have therefore developed a programme that enables schools to bring year groups of up to 30 children to this large specialised centre for an hour’s gymnastics each week throughout the term.
Our BGA qualified coaches work with your teachers to give an hour’s gymnastics activity. Encompassing National Curriculum guidelines children are given the opportunity to learn new skills safely and to use apparatus such as the sprung floor, springboards, boxes, balance beams, bars and trampoline.
The structured programme enables teachers and children to learn about gymnastics together.
Schools usually bring each year group for half term blocks of 6 sessions. This popular programme is booked well in advance but we do try to accommodate new requests from schools.
We have active partnerships with a range of primary, secondary schools as well as North Lindsey College; delivering tailored schemes of gymnastic lessons during the school day. We work with students of all abilites and design our sessions according to their needs; ranging from larger groups to smaller groups of students with special educational needs.
School Staff Training – Gymnastic Workshops
We encourage members of staff to observe or participate in our gymnastics session at their schools, but we also offer teacher-specific gymnastics workshops to schools who wish to lead their PE sessions independently in the future. Our coaches visit schools during their staff training time and lead fun formative sessions for staff based delivering a range of activities that target different skills, gaining confidence teaching different appartatus, and how to identify gifted and talented children.
