FUNdamentals

Learn some new skills and play some exciting sports on our courses

What FUNdamentals is about?

Gymnastics is considered by many to be the foundation for land based sports and as such helps children develop the agility, balance and co-ordination required for other sports and, indeed for life. It was therefore a natural step for British Gymnastics to work with education specialists on an early years programming combining development for physical, social and emotional skills.

FUNdamentals offers a wide range of activities organised within 16 themes, such as ‘seaside’ and ‘healthy eating’. Each theme is usually delivered over 6 sessions of approximately 45 minute duration.

The programme delivery is signposted by FUNKY Cat and his friends, each created to identify a particular skill through a FUN medium. Steady enjoys doing all the balance activities, Springy enjoys jumping about, Stretchy enjoys the warm-up sessions, Speedy has good locomotory skills, Swingy enjoys using apparatus, Sporty is well co-ordinated and Funky Cat himself, is a good all-rounder.
