The Key Stage 1 gymnastics club will begin on Thursday 28th September. Sessions will begin straight after school at 3.30pm and will finish at 4.30pm. During these sessions, the children will learn basic gymnastic skills on the floor and on the apparatus that we have in school. There will be an opportunity to represent the school in a small competition with other schools in the Leeds area as part of the School Games. The sessions will be every Thursday until Thursday 14th December, unless informed otherwise (excluding Thursday 26th October as this is half term).
In order for your child to join the gymnastics club, you will need to arrange for your child to be picked up at 4.30pm. P.E. kit should be worn during the sessions. Any gymnastics will happen in bare feet so suitable footwear isn’t applicable.
Due to the nature of gymnastics, there are a limited number of places available to ensure that the children remain safe during the session. With this in mind, the places will be available on a first come, first serve basis. If the number of children wanting to join exceeds the maximum number of spaces available, the children who are not allocated a space straight away will be put onto a waiting list and should a space become available, the school will contact you.
If your child would like to come to the gymnastics club, please complete the Parentmail form before 12pm on Friday 22nd September. If your child has successfully gained a space, you will receive a ParentMail by Tuesday 26th September. If you do not receive one, please assume that your child has been placed onto the waiting list.
