We are excited to deliver more real gym courses this week in Northolt, Warrington and Featherstone. The very first course was delivered before Easter at St Finian’s Catholic Primary School in Berkshire. Teachers from across the county learnt how real gym builds on the approach of real PE to develop children holistically through gymnastics activities.
They developed their skills set and went away feeling more competent to deliver real gym with increased confidence in their schools. They were also keen to put their new theory and practical skills into practice.
“I liked the clear link between real PE and real gym and the realisation that gym can be taught in such a progressive way. I now have valuable ideas for the teaching of gym in school.”
Lucy Cowan, teacher
Hermitage Primary School
“I learnt how to fit real gym in with real PE and teach good quality gym – less about leotards! I also liked the visual lesson plans and lesson demonstrations. A comprehensive and inspiring programme. real PE and real gym have been the best courses I’ve been on and I have seen lots of impact from them.”
Vicki Cleaver, teacher
Pangbourne Primary School
