James Wells, Dorchester Primary School, Surrey
Both novice and experienced teachers will find this an invaluable teaching resource:
This comprehensive resource explains how physical development patterns influence learning, provides warm-up and cool-down activities and themed games, details how to teach basic gymnastics shapes and techniques and explains how to incorporate large apparatus and hand apparatus into lessons. All the games and techniques are accompanied by photos or illustrations. Pupils learn the correct use of gymnastics vocabulary and they expand their social skills developing communication and leadership skills as they work with partners and in small groups. Pupils not only develop foundational skills that will benefit them in any sport they choose, but they also learn about their bodies, develop cognitive skills and increase self-confidence and self-esteem as they learn new skills.
