Just gymnastics offers gymnastic based movement classes for children in the Wakefield School Hall on Wednesday afternoons. Both preschool and afterschool classes are offered.
Getting your child active is vitally important. Being active increases co ordination as pathways are developed in the brain, gives confidence as they attempt new skills and find they are achievable, and creates a lifelong interest in physical exercise. Preschool classes are great fun as the child and parent work together moving around a circuit of activities. Included are activities of balance, rolling, spinning, hanging, jumping, and manipulation. These help to build strength and muscle tone, body and spatial awareness, safe play, co ordination and confidence. Moving to music is often part of the warm up. After school classes are non competitive allowing a child to move and learn at their own pace. Basic movement patterns of landings, spring, balance, rotation, locomotion, manipulation and swing are taught. These movement patterns are a foundation for all sports.
