Gymnastics with Jennifer McGrath
Jennifer reinforces curriculum concepts & helps children develop healthy bodies by turning the gymnastics equipment into an adventure wonderland! For example, during Dinosaur Week, the children dance around & under the parachute to travel back in time to the Land of the Dinosaurs. The balance beam becomes a bridge over hot lava and children jump over the wooly mammoth. Sliding down the brontosaurus’s back into a tyrannosaurus rex footprint requires balance, strength and coordination. Swinging on ropes over tar pits and crawling through the time machine build upper strength needed for hand writing skills. Children have a blast while building muscles, learning a variety of tucks, jumps, rolls, parallel-bar swings and gymnastics moves. Gymnastics sessions are offered twice a year. Whole School participation October to June.
