gymnastics in primary schools

Gymnastics is an essential part of Primary School PE. It is fun, and offers lots of opportunity for social interaction. Importantly, it promotes physical development, cognitive skills, confidence, discipline and resilience.

This week, we are excited to launch our brand-new gymnastics plans. Two units of work per year group, compromising easy to follow National Curriculum based lesson plans. With gymnastics such a vital part of PE , we’re confident these will take your lessons to the next level.

Each unit of work covers the essentials of gymnastics and now include pupil guidance cards and video demonstrations. This ensures the gymnastics plans are hugely engaging for all pupil abilities. Other key focusses on the design of these lesson plans include movement, physical development, teamwork and opportunities to perform.

In this blog post, we are going to take a look at what should be covered in gymnastics in primary schools, and why.  However, if you want to jump straight in, you can find our new gymnastics lesson plans here .

Gymnastics KS1

For Key Stage 1, gymnastics lessons should fulfil National Curriculum requirements for developing balance , agility and coordination .  It’s in these lessons that basic gymnastics movements can be introduced, helping to build pupils’ confidence and competence from the start.

Gymnastics KS1 lessons should cover:

Warm-up exercises

Preparing the body for physical activity can include jogging, stretching, and simple body movements to increase heart rate and flexibility.  As often as possible, warm up activities should be linked to the lesson theme.

Travelling and Moving

This is one of the most important aspects in gymnastics, as well as a main contender for developing a child’s locomotor skills. It is also important for improving coordination and spatial awareness. 

Positions such as Tuck , Star , and Arch form the foundation for more advanced movements. They can develop a child’s control and core strength.

Walking in a straight line, balancing on one foot, or balancing on large and small body points help develop balance. Balance is a fundamental movement skill and there’s no better sport than Gymnastics for developing it!

An introduction to rolls is so much fun for key stage one pupils. It allows them to practise and develop rolls such as a Log Roll , Egg Roll and even Teddy Bear Roll .

Jumping, landing

Landing correctly can be overlooked when teaching children to jump, but it is so important. Key Stage 1 Gymnastics teaches children how to jump and land safely with feet together; how to perform shapes in the air whilst jumping; and how to jump off low apparatus, such as small benches, developing control balance and confidence.

Sequence building and apparatus

Children gain a sense of responsibility, ownership and confidence when given opportunities to create sequences on and off apparatus. It can allow children to work together – sharing ideas, listening to others and developing their creative side. Pupils can also overcome fear when having time to explore apparatus and navigate across, on, over or under different equipment.

For our new Gymnastics KS1 lessons go to our Year 1 Gymnastics or Year 2 Gymnastics lesson plan pages

Gymnastics KS2

In Key Stage 2, gymnastics lessons should progress to further developing and refining each child’s strength and capabilities. Our new gymnastics lessons plans are designed to do this.

Key areas that Gymnastics KS2 lessons should cover are:

Warm-up and flexibility

Cardiovascular exercises help to prepare the body for physical activity and help to enhance flexibility. See how our warm up activities are directly linked to each lesson theme.

Rolls and rotations

Moving on from KS1 activities, these movements should advance to include more complex rolls, and roll combinations, including linking jumps and rolls.

Key Stage Two children should be challenged further when balancing. This could include more challenging individual balances, or balancing on apparatus such as beams to help increase strength and stability.

KS2 Gymnastics should also introduce partner balances and group balances with a variety of counter balance , counter tension and weight bearing – difficulty increasing through the year groups.

Jumps and leaps

A variety of different jump techniques, encouraging children to generate power, achieve height, distance and a controlled landing. This builds strengthening, balance and control.

Vaulting and flight

Key Stage Two Gymnastics starts to introduce vaulting, and children practise combinations and techniques needed to develop vaulting as they progress into Key Stage 3.

Routine Development

Linking elements such as rolls, jumps, balances and travelling elements will encourage creativity and expression while emphasising correct technique, finesse and fluency. Children will be given an opportunity to create routines individually, in pairs and in small groups.

Apparatus skills

Exploring a wider range of apparatus can help with balance, coordination and confidence.  Primary Schools can be limited with equipment, but you will be surprised what can be achieved with benches, balls, hoops, etc.

Strength and conditioning

Exercises that develop overall strength, endurance, and body awareness will help build each child’s confidence, as well as preventing health issues in later life. 

For building self-confidence and developing social interaction, children should evaluate their own and others’ performances, and provide constructive feedback. It allows children to see where they could do better. It also allows them to understand that they themselves can grow through constructive feedback from their peers.  Gymnastics is an ideal platform for introducing positive Citizenship.

For our new Gymnastics KS2 lessons go to our Year 3 Gymnastics , Year 4 Gymnastics , Year 5 Gymnastics or Year 6 Gymnastics lesson plans pages.

Prioritising gymnastics in primary schools

At PE Planning, we believe that gymnastics lessons are vital for primary-age children. Gymnastics lessons offer unique benefits and contributions to the holistic development of pupils… More than most other single areas of PE.

This is why we believe in the prioritising of gymnastics in primary schools. It’s why we have gone to such huge efforts to renew our entire offering of gymnastics lesson plans.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any feedback on our brand-new gymnastics lesson plans. If you’ve not seen them yet, we’ve included a teaser video below. Or, if you wish to ask for help before you deliver a Unit of Work to your pupils. We love to help – good luck!

I have been using Sportplan now for 3 years and can honestly say that I have never repeated the same session twice. My girls are always focused and are improving every year. Thanks Sportplan.

What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.

I can't get enough of the Sportplan, It has given me back the enthusiasm i was starting to lose. My girls are so keen and are ready at 14 to take the next up in their game. Sportplan will help no end.

How to Teach Gymnastics Skills in PE

How to Teach Gymnastics Skills in PE

2

So you’re getting ready for your Gymnastics Unit and looking for some ideas?   

You’re wondering how to get the boys that are “too cool” to buy in to your unit?

You’re wondering about safety and anxious that kids might get hurt while trying different movements?

That’s exactly how I felt when I was planning my first gymnastics unit.

I thought I would share how I teach gymnastics at my school to give you a few ideas as you plan your next unit.

First off – I think it’s really important to sell your kids on the importance of learning gymnastics, which is basically just body management.  Throughout the unit your students will learn to control their bodies while moving in a ton of different ways.   You can also throw in things like Parkour – which is form of body management that kids (especially boys) will resonate with.

I always talk to my kids about the fact that the strength, flexibility and balance that you will gain from working on gymnastics skills will transfer easily to every other sport that you might want to pursue .  

So even if you’re kids never take a gymnastics class, the skills will help them achieve success in other areas.  It’s really important to discuss this with your students so they will understand the “WHY” behind the instruction and realize that if they put in the effort, they will reap the benefits even if they never pursue gymnastics outside of school. 

Always Know the Why 👊🏻

So once you’re confident that you can explain to your students WHY you are teaching a Gymnastics Unit and how it will benefit them and help them become a better version of themselves, it’s time to give them a hook to spark their interest.

I usually begin with an overview of the unit, some rules via a Prezi and a quick gymnastics highlight video, you can see an example of a few excerpts from my unit intro below.

* Older Unit Intro Video Here

If you have a screen or projector and would like to use my Prezi for your Gymnastics unit, feel free to check it out HERE .   Just create an account and copy it to your own account and you should be able to make changes as you want to fit your unit. 

Sidenote :  If you have a setup similar to mine with a screen/projector a good alternative if you don’t have the ability to do an iPad mirror is using a laptop with a bluetooth keyboard  if you want mouse capabilities (like the one I’m using above) or a Presenter/Clicker if you’re just doing slides.

If you want to show a gymnastics video – the one below is one I was showing in my Unit Intro video above, it’s a great example of both talented guys and girls and also has a nice teamwork and sportsmanship component to it.

I usually do a 3-4 week unit and focus on a couple of skill components during each lesson plan, modifying the content and difficulty for each grade level to keep it age appropriate and build on prior knowledge.  FYI – I see my kids once a week for 50 minutes, so it’s usually 3-4 total lessons.

See an example of what the breakdown would look like below:

Gymnastics Unit Overview

Week 1 – Traveling ( 1st Grade ) ( 3rd Grade )

  • Animal Travels
  • Cartwheel/Roundoff
  • Create Your Own Travels

Week 3 – Create A Routine

  • Review Travels, Balances & Jumping and Landing
  • Have students come up with a Sequence or Routine combining all the elements they have learned
  • Perform the Sequence after giving students time to practice

During this week I have my older students write their routine down to help them think through it and also just to have a piece of evidence to show learning.   You can see an example of the worksheet I use below – It’s available in my Gymnastics Resource Pack.

If you see your students more than once a week and have more time to devote to the unit, this is a great time to integrate some technology and video your students routines and then watch them all as a class via a projector or TV.   I wish I had enough time to do this because I think it would be an awesome learning experience to talk through the different routines as a class.

Create Routine Cover Page

  • Jumping and Landing
  • Balancing Challenges
  • Partner Balances
  • Balance Beams
  • Cartwheels/Roundoffs
  • Exercise Station
  • Rings or Bars if you have them
  • Create a sequence

You can see the station sign holders that I used in the video below, if you want to check them out you can find them by clicking here.  

station sign holders (1)

Note : The slips have vertical and horizontal orientations, so make sure to select the one you want… or get both if you need both orientations.

The Culminating Experience ( Gymnastics Activity Skill Stations )

Taking a note from the Sport Education Model, I try to end each unit of instruction that I teach with a culminating experience for my students.  I want them to look forward to it and remember it from year to year.  Usually it’s a super fun game, some type of tournament or a bunch of exciting activity stations.  

The students get pretty pumped about the last week of our gymnastics unit when we do the activity stations because we have a small trampoline that they get to vault over equipment (See below for an example of my Kindy Students)

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Ben Landers (@thepespecialist)

Students also get to practice jumping off equipment, practicing skills on the balance beams, doing the rope swing and watch themselves perform different travels on the TV with an app called BAM video delay.  

Kids are just like adults in that they really enjoy autonomy and working towards mastery (sidenote: if you want to learn more about what motivates us as humans check out the book Drive: by Dan Pink , it gave me some great perspective for teaching)  Anyway – stations is a great way to give students that independent practice that they desire and need in order to work towards mastering a skill.   Also, they are a great tool for teachers to use to free themselves up to give one-on-one feedback, and assess student skill and behavior either formally or informally.  ( here’s a few examples of our stations in action )

You can see an example of the way I have my Gymnastics stations setup below:

Also, here’s a more detailed breakdown of the Rope Swing Station Levels:

You can see a highlight video of our gymnastics stations that I created with iMovie below.

I create these videos periodically to share with our teachers, admin and parents so they know what we’re doing in PE class.  If you want to learn how to create something similar – check out my iMovie Tutorial Here.

The Balance Board Station

Since filming the videos above I’ve gotten a few balance boards since it was something I always found really fun and challenging,  you can check out the ones I have below and the progressions I use for introducing them to students.

Don’t have much equipment?  

I realize that I have a lot of equipment, we are super blessed at my school and I have built on the program each year.  If you don’t have much equipment, don’t sweat it, it takes time to build up a well stocked equipment closet, but you can always figure out ways to make it work, here’s a few ideas.

  • Approach your district about buying some equipment that can be shared and travel around to all the schools during each schools gymnastics unit
  • Check out these mats – great reviews at a good price
  • Don’t have a balance beam?  Just use a simple 2 x 4 for a balance beam, or g oogle “DIY Balance Beam” for some ideas
  • Use aerobic steps for jump boxes
  • Use poly spots to balance on
  • Use yoga mats instead of gymnastics mats
  • Think outside the box 🙂

Got some money to spend? 

If you just scored a big grant, found a sponsor, got funding approved by your admin or got some money from a fundraiser and are looking to build up some gymnastics equipment you can check out the links below for some ideas:

  • The specific mats I have were at my school when I got there, but they’re the same size as the ones linked above – my kids love vaulting over them and using them as jump boxes or swinging between them on the rope swing.  Super pricey though.
  • My school already had jump boxes when I got there, but the ones I have are very similar to the ones linked above – multiple heights for various age and skill levels and easily stackable for storage.  
  • NOTE: I don’t have this mat – but man check out these reviews! I paid twice this price for my mats – next time I need some mats, these are the ones I’m ordering.  
  • I have the 60″ x 15″, but I’d recommend getting as big of a size as you can afford, I wish mine was bigger.  Forward and backward rolls it’s pretty good, but for log/pencil rolls the kids feet and hands hang off the edge.
  • Using a trampoline for your gymnastics or jump rope unit will get your kids pumped up, they love it. I set mine up as a station in front of trapezoid mats and my kids love vaulting over them.
  • I have a few sets of these that I hang from the basketball goals or monkey bars in my gym.  A cheap and portable way for kids to work on modified pull-ups or flex arm hang.
  • I liked this more than the PVC carts I’ve seen around – it’s way more heavy duty and takes up less space than the other PVC carts (and it’s cheaper).  I recently upgraded from using Old scooters to this cart and am really happy with it.
  • These were a huge score that were already at my school when I got here.  They offer flexible seating, fun balancing activities and can be flipped upside down to make a more narrow balance beam as well.  They are super pricey, but they’ll last forever.   Here’s a link to the ones I have.

Thanks for checking out the blog, I hope it was helpful.   If you have some ideas for upgrading a gymnastics unit or have any questions –  leave a comment in the comment section. 

If you’re looking for some resources to take your upgrade your next Gymnastics unit, consider purchasing my Gymnastics Resource Pack – I’ve put ALOT of hard work into it, and I think it would be a super valuable resource for your program.  You can see the details below.

*NOTE: The entire Gymnastics Resource Pack and tons of other resources are available for free download within the membership section. ( Show Me How to Become a Member )

Want a freebie   you can download my 25 single balances poster below for free below., the follow the leader gymnastics pack.

If you have a screen in your teaching space you also might be interested in the Follow the Leader Gymnastics Pack!

I created the follow the leader pack for my gymnastics unit to help provide visuals of the different tricks, travels and movements to my students throughout our unit (it’s a similar idea to the jump rope follow the leader pack ).

This is an AWESOME resource for any teacher that has a screen in their teaching space.  The Follow the Leader pack includes Animated GIFS and remade powerpoint slideshows for each week of the unit.  It also includes some awesome follow the leader balancing challenges and some bonus printable as well.

You can check out a few examples of how I use it below.

This or That

This or that is a fun activity I do with my students during Week 2 when we are going over Balancing and Jumping and Landing.  It’s a way to compare and contrast different balances and discuss what makes different balances harder or easier.

Check out the video below for an example of the activity

Animated GIFs For Station Activities

I also used the animated GIF Summary slides to place at the different stations around the room during our station activities week.

You could use iPads or Chromebooks if they’re available to provide a looping example of what to do at each station.

I really found this helped students understand what to do and made expectations and instructions much more clear at each station.

Check out a walkthrough of the stations and animated GIFS below:

I’m so appreciative that you mentioned that students get to practice jumping off of equipment, honing their balance on the balance beams, swinging from a rope, and watching themselves perform various movements. My niece has always wanted to try gymnastics so this just convinced me to get her into one. I also feel like gymnastics will allow her to harness her talent and potential so thanks for this.

I am in Texas and need to make sure I am within our TEKS. Looking for some help in developing a 2-day per week unit that might last 7-8 weeks. Anything I can beg/borrow/steal in a PDF format etc. so I can write this curriculum and share with my fellow PE teachers would be much appreciated!

Once they have mastered balancing, rolling, and tumbling, they can build their endurance by practicing them all in a continuous sequence. Creating sequences offers students the chance to be creative, have fun, and build confidence in their gymnastic skills.

Hi, I am trying to download the Unit and it is not working. Any advice on what I am doing wrong, or another way to pay and download? Thanks!

October 26, 2018 at 3:40 pm

Usually, this issue is related to a school filter, pop-up blocker, or browser issue – so we’d recommend trying from another computer, switching browsers and making sure all pop up blockers have been turned off.

Hey!!! I really need some help I’m from Bolivia, and I just start working as a P.E. teacher in an international school. That means that all the teaching is like in US. I really need help for planning my units and I’m having trouble about how mny units should I have for the entire year, the lenght, and the formative and summative assessment. Thanks

I am training to become a primary teacher and gymnastics is a strand that is part of the P.E. curriculum. I am wondering if you sell DVDs or anything visual which describes discusses whats involved as I’m unfamiliar with gymnastics.

Kind Regards

May 17, 2018 at 7:08 am

I’m training in Ireland but hoping to find a resource that will really help me to become much more familiar with this area.

Thanks again,

May 18, 2018 at 2:55 pm

Hey Judith – I only sell the Unit Plan + Station Signs, it does come with the Balances E-book which has illustrations of all the balances, however if you’re looking for video demonstrations of all the movements, check out the App called “Head Over Heels Gymnastics”

May 18, 2018 at 3:29 pm

That’s brilliant. Thanks for your help Ben!

March 23, 2018 at 9:02 am

For the trampoline and vault.. Do you allow the kids to run and then jump off the trampoline or do you have start on the trampoline jumping and trying to gain height before they perform the move? Thanks!

March 26, 2018 at 3:12 pm

We allow them to run and jump, but put a cone for the start of the line and it’s only about 5 feet from the trampoline

' src=

March 23, 2018 at 6:59 am

thanks this helped alot

March 2, 2018 at 8:59 am

Ben, when you have students do Level 1 and 2 off of the trampoline on to the vaulting mat do you have them put their hands on the vaulting mat and then jump up OR do you have them just try to jump off the trampoline and land on the mat?

March 2, 2018 at 3:02 pm

Usually they use their hands, but if they can do it without that’s fine too, I don’t require them to use hands, it just makes it easier

' src=

February 15, 2018 at 9:37 am

We’re doing our gymnastics unit and using mats to vault over. How do you keep mats from sliding? I put my knee on the mats and have my body behind the mat as a brace but am still constantly adjusting it. Any ideas? Thanks!

February 16, 2018 at 3:23 pm

We lay our landing mats against the wall and put the vaulting mats right next to it, you can see the way we set it up in the youtube video in the post above. It moves a little, but definitely helps a lot

February 17, 2018 at 12:33 pm

Thanks so much! We’re stacking floor mats to vault over and those are sliding. Do you remember where you got your vaulting mats? Something to save up for. I’ll be moving our landing mat against the wall. Thanks!

February 19, 2018 at 3:38 pm

They were already here when I started – they’re pretty pricey. They are called “Trapezoid Mats”, here’s an example

I would shop around and try to find a deal from a PE Equipment provider with a discount coupon or something

' src=

February 12, 2018 at 2:12 pm

Would this work for k-4? Except for the specific things you listed with a specific grade level next to it?

We have either single class with about 25-30 kids or double class with around 50-55.

The rope is hanging from the ceiling.

Hello – Can you go into more details on your jumping and landing or jumping tricks you do with your students?

February 20, 2017 at 4:06 pm

We just focus on doing different jump shape and sticking the landing. It keeps it interesting and challenging to try different tricks like straddles, tucks or any other body shapes in the air once you master the basic jump and land with control.

Excellent information! I am a gymnastics and circus coach and am starting my own mobile business to teach gymnastics to preschools and elementary schools. Your comment on explaining why gymnastics is important is so valuable. There will always be those kids (boys) who feel uncool trying the sport. At the gym I work at our most popular program is “Extreme Kids” which is basically gymnastics, parkour, trampoline, and general physical challenges. Boys love it, and really, parkour and gymnastics are so similar, especially at the beginning stages, that the class isn’t much different from a gymnastics class. Less focus on straight legs and pointed toes perhaps, but still lots of focus on technique. When we have birthday parties at the gym, we do a Mission Impossible obstacle course that is always a hit. In order to win over the boys, I emphasize that there are parkour and gymnastic type challenges.

I also agree that kids love skill mastery and challenge. I like to incorporate lots of “how high can you…”, “how long can you”, “how many can you”, etc. Ideas include consecutive long jumps, running up the wall (ideally with an incline or even yoga/ sting mat, but not crucial… also chalk or something to hold with tape on the back so the kids can mark their spot), leaping over pool noodles (good for teaching split leaps too), sprints, number of tuck jumps, etc.

I love how you include balance tricks, not just because of their inherent value, but also because it gives the weaker kids something they can theoretically do well at. Making their own routine has the same benefit, not to mention the chance to be creative (I compare it to the benefits of art over crafts). I love how you have set up your program!

If equipment is limited, there are tons of gymnastics skills and drills can be taught with benches, walls, duct tape, chairs, pool noodles, hoola hoops, and tables.

If you teach older kids, you’ll probably have a gymnast or two to take advantage of. I would find out who is in competitive gymnastics in the school as he or she will be able to show drills and skills with correct technique and have a wide knowledge base to share with you.

January 7, 2017 at 2:57 pm

Sounds like a fun business, JoAnna! Thanks for comment and the tips, I will try a few of those out.

This looks great. I am definitely interested in the package. Just curious to what grades this is specialized to? I teach all the way from K-12 at my school so I know it will hit some of those grades, I was just wondering what ones?

April 27, 2016 at 3:36 pm

Thanks Stephen – The resource pack is focused on Elementary level, since that’s what I teach – but you can use the same ideas, concepts and activities for older students with a little modification.

I can’t give you specifics since I’ve never taught Gymnastics to middle/high school kids, it would just be me guessing about what’s appropriate and engaging for students.

Here's what's on tap for summer 2024 in Minneapolis

M emorial Day weekend will kick off a busy summer of events in Minneapolis, starting with an outdoor Warehouse District party before Friday night's Timberwolves game .

By the numbers: From now through September, 1,800 events will take place in downtown Minneapolis, some as small as bar trivia and some as big as gymnastics' U.S. Olympic Team Trials, which will bring tens of thousands of visitors in late June.

Why it matters: Some of this stuff looks pretty fun.

What's on tap

🎶 15 major concerts, including Foo Fighters (July 28), Green Day (Aug. 17), and Def Leppard, Journey, and Steve Miller Band (Aug. 19) at Target Field; and Morgan Wallen (June 20-21), Metallica (Aug. 16&18), and Zach Bryan (Aug. 24) at U.S. Bank Stadium.

🎟 18 days of festivals, headlined by Twin Cities Pride (June 28-30), Taste of Minnesota (July 7-8) and the Aquatennial (July 24-27). The July 4 Red, White, and Boom fireworks are back on the downtown riverfront after a hiatus last year, said Minneapolis Park Board superintendent Al Bangoura.

🍔 Weekly activities that will bring food trucks and games to Nicollet Mall, plus discounts at businesses, and free use of coworking space at the downtown Life Time Work on Thursdays.

What they're saying: At a press conference yesterday, Mayor Jacob Frey told a bustling Nicollet Mall to "bring ya friends, bring ya family, bring ya ass downtown."

Downtown Council CEO Adam Duininck cited a University of Toronto study , saying Minneapolis saw a 43% jump in visitors, the biggest year-over-year jump of a North American city in March.

  • Duininck credited arts, theater, sports, and entertainment for driving the comeback, while remote work continues to keep the weekday traffic slow.

The bottom line: Sports has led the way, as 330,000 people came downtown for a game at Target Center or Target Field in April, said Courtney Ries of Meet Minneapolis. Countless more filled bars for official and unofficial watch parties.

  • The Wolves will hopefully keep that going for a few more weeks.

Get the rundown of the biggest stories of the day with Axios Daily Essentials.
