The class provides a safe and fun learning environment to build a sound foundation in body movement, awareness, flexibility and co-ordination.
Classes are divided into beginner, intermediate and advanced groups to provide children with the most appropriate skills, progression and optimum learning environment.
Children progress at their own speed and move up to the next level when they are assessed as ready. With the use of balance beam, bars, trampolines and mats, we aim to develop self-assurance, co-ordination, balance, spatial awareness, strength, flexibility and confidence. We use circuits and games during the lesson to add variety, to increase motivation and help develop memory skills. At Chamford we have separate programs for girls and boys to provide an optimum learning environment for both genders.
