The Gymnastics Badges and Certificates have been designed to assess the basic skills and essential development needed in gymnastics.
How it works:
There will be a badge testing session during the block of classes, half the class will complete the badge testing one week and the other half the following week. The children who are not involved in badge testing will continue working on their skills on the apparatus.
On completing a badge, parents will be able to purchase the appropriate badge and certificate from reception. A select list of skills for the badges can be found on the gymnastics noticeboard.
