I know how difficult it is to constantly find ways to entertain your child and keep them engaged. Obviously in this increasingly digital world the temptation of putting your child in front of the TV, computer or tablet can sometimes be too overwhelming. And it’s not all bad. There are loads of wonderful programmes on TV for your child to enjoy and learning keyboard skills is also a vital part of your child’s learning. It’s all about balance.
Coming from a gymnastics background, of course I am going to encourage you to keep your child moving as much as possible. You are all doing a wonderful job by bringing your child to gymnastics classes week on week. In my opinion gymnastics is the foundation of all sports and it helps your child to not only improve their fitness levels, co-ordination, concentration and flexibility but also to learn life skills like how to work as a team, how to achieve goals and how to become confident kids. You are also helping them to appreciate a healthy and active lifestyle and make it part of their daily routine for years to come.
I believe that motion is so important that it should be brought into every classroom. Not just when it’s a P.E. lesson. Motion changes our emotional state and gets our mind connected to our body because we learn as a whole being and not just as a brain.
Please be mindful and don’t forget about the importance of movement during the summer. We don’t want to be like our American friends where according to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) children spend an average of 7 hours a day using media like mobile phones, television, internet and video games!
With this beautiful summer weather it’s a great time to play outside. Remember your own summer holidays from school. When I look back it feels like the month of August went on forever and it’s full of happy memories of playing outside with my friends and cousins making up adventure games often based on some of my favourite films like ‘The Goonies’ and ‘Back to the Future!’
A great way that you can help your child stay active this summer is by securing their place at our Summer Holiday Tumble Camps in Surrey or at one of our Trampolining Masterclasses in Guildford. We have tumble camps going on in Guildford, Weybridge and Farnham. We will keep your child moving whilst they learn gymnastics, trampolining and acrobatics in our fun filled learning zones.
