Gymnastics Programme

If you’re looking for a unit of work that covers just about all the physical skills that children need to develop, gymnastics is your answer. Flexibility, strength, technique, speed, control, coordination and balance are all developed through gymnastics. Teaching gymnastics is in line with the national curriculum and must be delivered each school year:

KS1: “Pupils should develop fundamental movement skills, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and coordination, individually and with others.”

KS2: “Pupils should be taught to develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics]”

The moves, exercises and activities that make up gymnastics help children to understand the way their bodies move, and how these movements can be coordinated and controlled. And as we mentioned in our first point, flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance are all developed through our gymnastics lessons, making the sport an ideal fit for the national curriculum.
