Yesterday’s real gym National Launch was a great success and teachers, Headteachers and practitioners attending the launch were able to see exactly what real gym looks like and hear how it all started.
Olympic Rhythmic Gymnastics Coach, Sarah Moon has created the real gym programme to transform how gymnastics is taught in primary schools and to give ALL children the opportunity to develop gymnastics skills in a fun, inclusive and holistic way.
The real gym National Launch took place in three venues across the country and was hosted by Lings Primary School, Northampton, Monkton Park Primary School, Chippenham and Woodhill Primary School, London.
At Lings Primary School, Sarah Moon and Olympian Lynne Hutchison shared their personal journeys and spoke passionately about the reasons why all children deserve the opportunity to learn gymnastic activities in primary school. Headteacher, Leigh Wolmarans was proud to show a real gym lesson in action and explain how it’s had a positive impact on pupils and teachers at the school. Leigh said:
“real gym develops every fundamental skill that is needed to enjoy physical learning at school and in life. By making the sessions fun, engaging and interactive they help children of all abilities to be actively involved. The results you see in every area of physical learning are impressive and so worth it!”
We’ve captured the National Launch in photographs below.
