Gymnastics at the Community Centre with Sam
Through participating in gymnastics with Sam, our children are demonstrating control over their bodies, including locomotor and movement skills, agility and balance, and the ability, coordination and confidence to use their bodies to take risks and physical challenges. Te Whāriki Early Childhood Curriculum, Exploration Strand.
Our J4K children have really risen to the challenge of learning new skills and trying out new equipment at our Monday gymnastics sessions with Sam. They’re all keen to have a go at the physical activities on offer – whether climbing, swinging, balancing, jumping or clambering over obstacle courses. They are becoming capable and confident – pushing themselves to master new skills and practice already established skills with energy and enthusiasm. These sessions are payed for by Country Kids and are free of charge to parents, so it is fantastic to see so many parents making the most of this opportunity.
