Gymnastics Large Apparatus Twilight INSET – get the wall-bars out!

(25 customer reviews)

£350.00

Audience: All primary school staff teaching or supporting curricular gymnastics

Our most requested Twilight CPD programme!

Gymnastics large apparatus has huge potential to support, challenge and extend pupil’s progress in gymnastics & physical education. Yet despite this many staff are anxious about using it with their classes. This simple Twilight INSET can help reassure your staff about moving, handling and using the large apparatus in YOUR school. It is specific to your apparatus, and ‘querks’ with your environment such as space, positioning of apparatus etc. Get staff using the wall-bars appropriately and safely to challenge, extend, enhance your pupils experience.

Boost your staff’s confidence, create a shared understanding and appreciation for gymnastics and optimise the learning potential. Contact us to arrange your own bespoke Twilight INSET.

“Following the gymnastics staff development training, I made a couple of small changes to the way I deliver my curriculum gymnastics lessons which had a huge impact on the effectiveness of the children’s learning. Moving to a ‘free flow’ method of delivering gymnastics saw a real increase in the amount of time children were being active in the lessons. Rather than queuing at stations, children moved around the area using all the available equipment and continuously practising & refining their skills. It’s changed the way I think about delivering effective PE lessons.”
Mr Lewis Barrett-Rodger, Deputy Headteacher Kendall Primary School, Colchester

Highly Recommended!

Impactful, sustainable development to empower your staff

This twilight is designed specifically for those schools lacking confidence in using and teaching curriculum Gymnastics with the large apparatus (e.g. wall-bars). It provides a proven, robust safety framework as well as optimising pupil progress. Help engage your pupils, avoid queues, increase the learning, engagement, participation and enjoyment for both you and the pupils! It improves Confidence, Knowledge, Skills & Competence of staff in line with Key Indicator 3 of PE & Sport Premium requirements as well as making effective use of some of your most expensive PE resources.

It’s all about getting the very best for your pupils – increasing participation, activity levels, progress, engagement and ENJOYMENT!

This Twilight INSET provides an ideal support package for teachers who want to develop a better understanding of the potential for learning for ALL within gymnastics – how to plan, teach and assess progress, especially on large apparatus.

Contact us to discuss your specific needs and dates: en*******@vi******.uk  Please note travel expenses may be charged as we are increasingly delivering this course across other areas of UK.

Resources, planning and assessment are covered along with how to teach for ALL rather than the few that may go onto compete in a School Games event or similar competition. The safe, effective use and deployment of YOUR apparatus is covered in detail along with safety, progression and skill development. Core skills, core knowledge and understanding make this a must for any school whose staff do not feel confident in the use of apparatus or the teaching of gymnastics.

    The CPD was very informative – I learnt different methods of engaging children that i had never thought about! Knowing how to set up (apparatus) has given me confidence and will impact upon my teaching. Liked the ideas for getting pupils into pairs, giving pupils opportunities to be leaders. Focus on earning and sharing L.O. effectively was great. – Faria Griffiths

  10. Martin Radmore

    ‘Seeing how to set up the equipment and ideas on how to use it will mean that I will not be afraid to get the ‘big’ equipment out! I will use some of the assessment / evidence ideas -especially the class book. I would really recommend this course – very informative – full of ideas to try in lessons and safety tips on getting the apparatus out – much needed. Abby Srokowski – Aslacton Primary Academy

  11. Martin Radmore

    Every aspect of the course worked well for me, (it) was engaging, informative and enjoyable.

    What aspect of the course worked best for YOU? – ALL of it! All the practical! Very engaging with constant practical examples! techniques to get lessons off to a brilliant start! Understanding and seeing how it would actually work in a lesson! Dynamic approach! Engaging all pupils and making sure they are active throughout! Ways to ensure all pupils are involved and practical activities!
    Just some of the comments from staff at Hampton Hargate Primary – Peterborough, September 1 2022.

  13. Martin Radmore

    If I am honest, the thought of 3 hours Gymnastics CPD filled me with dread! However, Martin soon reassured us all! The session was fast-paced, appropriate, fun, educational and highly relevant. Thank you! I will definitely use the approaches in my Year 4 lessons. As an ‘experienced’ teacher it was so beneficial to have a refresher of excellent classroom practice!
    Thank you!

  16. Martin Radmore

    What worked best for me was taking part in all the activities to see what it is like for children. I’ll take away how to set up the equipment safety and how to link warm-up activities into the main activity. The session boosts confidence, it’s fun and informative.
    Kiaya Foster, Somerleyton Primary, Suffolk 21/07/2023

    Martin created a relaxed atmosphere so staff felt comfortable to learn and ask questions. Upskilling staff knowledge for gym apparatus – leading to it being used more with more confident staff.
