Age 3 to 4 years
We take a different theme each week in the Mini Gym classes and start the class with a short warm up using music, hand apparatus and language that emphasises the weeks’ theme. The equipment is set up in three circuits, rather than one large one as for the toddlers, and after the warm up we move into three groups to use the circuits which are set up to help us continue with the theme.
Each group has it’s own coach and a maximum of 6 children. Whilst our first focus is fun, whilst participating in our Mini Gym class the children will learn the basics of rolling, handstands, springboard use, vaulting and simple bar work, co-ordination, balance, jumping, strength and flexibility. To close the class, all groups join together in a brief discussion of what they have been doing, what they liked, found easy or hard and an action song.
