Mini Gym

For children aged 3 and 4 years old

‍Mini Gym

Structured classes for children to develop their physical and social skills in a safe and fun environment.

​Our aim is to give the children a safe, enjoyable and challenging gymnastics experience. The sessions are planned on a termly basis to ensure a balanced and varied programme for the children.

​Classes are for children aged 3 and 4 years old. These sessions aim to improve their fundamental skills such as coordination, spatial awareness, balance, strength and flexibility in a progressively structured yet fun gymnastics session.

​Gymnasts work in small groups under the direction of a coach in a safe and stimulating environment which utilises a variety of equipment.

​We run a British Gymnastics Pre-School Proficiency Award Scheme and the gymnasts are routinely assessed to monitor their progress.

How does RB Gym and Sport’s Curriculum Support address the DFE Standards?

Professional development should have a clear focus on improving and evaluating pupil outcomes

  • Differentiated activities and lessons to ensure all pupils are challenged and make swift progress.
  • Regular shared assessment to match needs, experience and knowledge to curriculum support activities and delivery.

Professional development should be underpinned by robust evidence and expertise​

  • Pre and post audit/evaluation.
  • Impact data reports.
  • Curriculum progress recording.
  • Quality assurance through regular observations and training.
  • Evidence reported on professional development forms.
  • Each member of staff has their own personal development folder to help develop, support, reflect and evidence progress​.

Professional development should include collaboration and expert challenge

  • Sport Educators provide ongoing support, modelling, and challenge.
  • Regular feedback to help create, achieve, and reflect on weekly goals.

Professional development should include collaboration and expert challenge

  • Delivered on site in your lesson with your pupils.
  • Mentoring relationship pre, during and post lesson delivery.
  • Ongoing support for all teachers taking part.
  • Sport Educator can help engage children in sustained physical activity opportunitiese.g. Extra-curricular clubs, playleader awards etc.

Class times

Classes are every Saturday at both centres:

  • 08.30 - 09.30
  • 09.30 - 10.30
  • 10.30 - 11.30
  • 11.30 - 12.30
  • 12.30 - 13.30
  • 13.30 - 14.30

​Moving to school years classes from Mini Gym can be a little scary. Our 4-5pm classes are for Reception age children - 6 years old.

This helps with the transition between classes and allows some children to move to school years classes early so we can ensure classes are still fun and challenging.

* Children attending schools years gym classes before they turn 5 years old when in reception class at school is subject to the individual demonstrating enough physical and mental maturity.
