"It has blown apart the children's ideas around gymnastics...They feel that their efforts are appreciated and valued, and they take time to share their skills and knowledge with others. The children learn not only gymnastic and wider PE skills but also life skills via the cogs. They share successes through helping and supporting each other and gain the ability to transfer these skills and attributes to the classroom." Mark Templeton, PE Teacher, North Town Primary School, Taunton.
"I feel more confident teaching gym. Love the contents and Lesson Plans etc…Inspiring! I feel inspired to go back to school and revamp the PE curriculum." Sam Jane, teacher from Cornwall.
" ..very informative day that has inspired me to a greater level of confidence to teach gym as part of a holistic PE curriculum." Tracey Robson, teacher from Norwich.
