How can you make gymnastics activity fun, lively and inclusive? How can you improve the health and well-being of all your children? How can you ensure progression over time? This practical and easy-to-use teacher's guide is the brand new edition of the popular workbook Movement Education leading to Gymnastics 4-7. It takes a session-by-session approach to teaching physical development and well-being through gymnastics for the five to seven age range. Fully updated with the most current schemes of work to use at Key Stage 1, it sets out a series of forty sessions over the two year span, to give you planned and logical progression of both content and advice. This one-stop resource includes twenty session plans per year group, which you can follow as a complete course or dip into for ideas and inspiration. It also includes Specific Skills Guide to help you support children in developing the correct techniques. Each session plan includes: * learning objectives * assessment criteria * teaching approaches * warm up and cool down activities * the content of the session * apparatus needed * health and safety considerations. The companion volume, Developing Physical Health, Fitness and Well-Being through Gymnastics 7-11 follows the same format, and together, these user-friendly books provide a progressive programme of work from Years 1-6. If you are a practising or student teacher, this guide will give you all the confidence you need to teach gymnastics in your school.
