All of our gymnastics classes are 50 minutes of intense, but fun, activities on each of the four gymnastics aparatus . With two PE teachers writing the curriculum, the class is structured to keep your child moving and avoid teaching the same thing every week. All classes have 1 instructor for every 6 students.Each month we introduce one specific gymnastics skill, for example, the straddle position, lever touch or handstand.
Classes are 50 minutes, and then we do a quick visit to the Character Corner. During this optional 5 minutes, we introduce a new character word each month, and ask the children to complete a homework assignment to help them learn to exemplify the character trait in their everyday lives. So don't be surprised if your child is determined to brush her teeth every night without being told (self-discipline) or if she wants to do something special for a sibling (loving)!
10 MINUTES OF WARM UP
Tag and running games to get the heart pumping. This time will be used to teach good technique on basic stretches and exercises they can do at home. All classes warm up at the same time, then they break into the individual classes of six for the actual class.
12 MINUTES ON CIRCUIT (FLOOR/TUMBLE TRACK)
This will consist of several tumbling stations, so every student stays active and moves through different activities.
12 MINUTES ON CIRCUIT (BARS)
This will consist of several stations that work on skills relating to building strength and skills that are important for bar work.
12 MINUTES ON CIRCUIT (BEAM)
Beam work will include multiple challenges to improve balance and confidence.
COOL DOWN AND CHARACTER CORNER
The classes are 50 minutes, and then we take the next 5 minutes to talk about our character trait for the month. Your student can choose whether to stay for those additional 5 minutes.
