Well our Jnr Gym Kids have finished their Body Awareness theme and now that we’re beginning to know where our body is in space, we are ready to blast off to outer space with our ROCKET Theme!
Our under 5’s are ready to explore a wide range of movement activities, with a focus on the rocket shape (which is a tall straight body with arms straight up by ears & legs together)!
Our rocket shape uses lots of core strength which we know is so important for not only controlling our body, but also in assisting with overall development – improving posture, assisting children to pay attention and helping our kids in their day to day life; be it at kindy, school, in the playground or during structured activities!
During our rocket theme, children will work on coordinating their arms and legs in jumps and play purposefully with force and power! Our little astronauts will learn to drive their legs and push their arms with lots of three, two, one – BLAST OFF fun!
Blasting off needs powerful leg drive and coordinated arms to whoosh us into space after all!
Because rocket shape forms the base for so many of our gymnastics skills, we will be exploring this shape in all of its forms, on each of the gymnastics apparatus! We will stretch tall and tight in balance; hang from the bars long and straight and push strong into our handstands and jumps!
Get ready for some out of this world fun during Rocket Week at Jnr Gym Kids!
We look forward to moving with you!
