For something a bit different, I decided to let the Grade 5/6 students design their own warm-up game that they would run with their classmates over the coming weeks.

In a group of 3 or 4, students had to design a game that specifically targeted Fun, Fitness, Friendship, Fundamentals and Safety.

It had to be a warm-up game, so the participants had to be constantly moving, no going out and staying out.

Below is some of the best creations, I'll add more over the coming weeks...

Bacon Flip


bacon

Rules: 3 - 4 taggers, taggers cannot get you whilst you are saving someone.

Description: When a tagger gets you, you need to lie down on the ground in a dish shape. You stay there until a friend saves you by 'flipping' the bacon 3 times (they roll you to superman, dish, superman), then you are free to move around again.

Score: Fun: 80%; Fitness: 90%; Fundamentals: 100%; Friendship: 100%; Safety: 92%.
OVERALL SCORE: 92%

Fishy Tiggy

Rules: 3 - 4 taggers, taggers cannot get you whilst you are saving someone.

Description: When a tagger gets you, you become a fish. When you are a fish, you need to hold a side support shape. You stay there until a friend saves you by catching you and 'reeling' you in. As they are 'reeling' you in, you need to flap around like a fish. Once saved, then you are free to move around again.

Score: Fun: 100%; Fitness: 100%; Fundamentals: 80%; Friendship: 100%; Safety: 83%.
OVERALL SCORE: 88%

About Gary Black...


Gary Black

Advanced Silver Mens Gymnastics Coach, Intermediate Womens Gymnastics Coach, Intermediate Kindergym Coach.

Gary began running gymnastics programs in schools in 2003. Initially as a casual staff member with another company, whilst studing teaching at Deakin University; and quickly becoming one of their managers. Gary went on to own what was the sole Victorian franchise of that company.

Whilst with that company, under Gary's leadership, Victorian customers enjoyed quality, reliability, flexibility, and understanding.

In mid 2014, to be able to better service the changing needs of schools, Gary decided to move away from a restrictive franchised business, and started Gymnastics 4 Hire, determined to keep the high standards that customers had come to enjoy, and to provide a service specifically tailored to the customers needs.
