#GymnasticsAtHome

The North Tyneside PE & School Sport Team deliver a calendar of events & activities throughout the academic year. These support the young people that attend North Tyneside schools, to participate in physical activity, sport and competition.

In the summer term we hold a Key Step Gymnastics Competition. We would like to contnue involving young people in some gymnastics activity at home or at school through these resources. We want to encourage young people to continue to participate and keep active.

Just a few little things to remember…

We need to make sure the children are safe , so the points below should always be reiterated:

  • Please always check with someone at home or at school before you do any of these activities

  • Please ensure you are wearing appropriate clothing, hair tied back and no jewellery

There is a disclaimer on each card - Physical activities can have a risk of injury, please ensure you participate in activities suitable to your skill level. Taking part in the activities are at your own risk.

Why Gymnastics?

British Gymnastics recently undertook some research to understand what skills and abilities are developed by participating in gymnastics.

Results indicate that gymnastics has the ability to develop fundamental skills such as strength, flexibility, balance, problem solving, decision making, leadership and teamwork, which gives participants the ability to transition easily into other sports.
