FUNdamentals

FUNdamentals has been designed specifically by British Gymnastics to help Coaches and Teachers deliver a programme that develops essential basic skills in movement and co-ordination to younger children.

FUNdamental Movement ideas for Early Years is a movement programme designed and developed by British Gymnastics in conjunction with early years specialists to help younger children from toddler to 5 years acquire essential physical, social and emotional life skills. The Programme has been developed with six early learning goals in mind – (Social, Physical, Linguistic, Intellectual, Creative, Educational) and all of the activities can be practised safely under the guidance of the Fundamentals Award Scheme Coach or Teacher.

The FUNdamentals programme offers 16 different, creative and imaginative themes which each session is centred. All sessions start with a warm up and end with a cool down. Within each theme there are a wide range of activites which cover co-ordination, locomotory skills, balance activities, rebound, actions and rhymes, educational elements and rolling. Once all of these skills are completed within a theme, the child can be rewarded with a Badge and Certificate set.

A Resource Pack, Wall Charts and Work Cards help you plan your sessions, and there are Badges, Certificates and Medals available to reward the achievements of your young students. To start, you can order the FUNdamentals Starter Pack which contains everything you need to get going – and then you can order top up materials as your Classes get going.

NB: To deliver the FUNdamental’s Programme you need to complete the FUNdamental’s Training Day to complement  your current Coaching or Teaching qualifications.  For details, please contact our Education Team on 0845 129 7129 ext. 2392.
