Our Gym Bobs class follows the same structure as Tumble Bobs, with the biggest challenge being that they come into the class independently from their grown up! For some children, it may take a few weeks to settle in, so we will work with you to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible.
Working closely with the Pre-School coaches, the children will continue to develop their strength, balance and co-ordination skills and they will soon grow in confidence and build those all-important social skills as they work independently in groups and interact with other children.
1. Warm-Up: A structured group activity where they will learn to listen, follow instructions and work independently. They will continue to build on their basic gymnastic skills and learn new ones.
2. Circuits: Children will be split into groups and work independently around circuits learning skills such as rolling, handstands, cartwheels, balancing, jumping and landing safely. These circuits will be rotated every 3 weeks to keep them fully engaged and wanting to come back each week.
3. Cooldown: Time to enjoy a cooldown to music (although it’s not always a calm activity!) and we finish with our gymnastic shapes routine.
The sessions cover the contents of the British Gymnastics Awards, and our aim is for each child to receive badges and certificates to recognise their efforts and achievements within the Pre-School Programme.
