An 8 Week Course for children aged 3 to 4½ yrs


Teddy Bear Gymnastic Courses are a structured and fun way to introduce your child to gymnastics. The classes are designed to be stimulating and enjoyable for children whilst teaching solid foundations for gymnastic development.

The classes operate around an award scheme aimed at giving direction and purpose for the children and are designed to help progression whilst giving a sense of achievement. The penultimate week of the course is “Test Week” – testing is done in a very informal and non-competitive manner. Children who can correctly demonstrate particular elements taught during the course will “Pass” the level on which they have been working and can then progress to the next level if they enrol for the following term.

The Class format is as follows:-

Whole Group Warm Up - By way of an action song to get the children active and focused

Whole Group Co-ordination Activity - This may be a catching type activity or balancing and landing

Class breaks down into smaller groups according to ability level - Five minutes is then spent on each piece of apparatus working on the award scheme.

Free playtime - Five minutes of free playtime is then scheduled at the end of the session to give the children the opportunity to let off steam or go back to revisit their favourite activity. During this playtime parents/carers come into the class to supervise their children’s free play.

Teddy Bear Song - At the end of the session all the children and parents gather on the floor area to sing our Teddy Bear Song and say goodbye. The award scheme starts on Grade 4 progressing to Grade 1 with those children that progress well and reach a level higher than Grade 1 being introduced to the Recreational award scheme.
