New story cards are on the cards at LBF

Some story card drawings for the little BIGs.
I’m quite excited by the concept- the kids will each pick a card, & collectively make up a story by combining them. We will write the story & the kids will illustrate ‘their’ page themselves. Put it all together & a copy for each of the kids. Perfect!
The drawings are Unfinished and there are more to come, but here are some tasters.

What we have been up to in March at little BIG fitness

A snippet of what the kids have been up to in March.

This months theme was ‘me’, and the kids built a book about themselves. Class time was devoted to different body parts and what they can do (eg. hands, feet, heads, next week will be bodies). Lots of writing, drawing, some beautiful colouring in and quite a few stickers were involved! We also read books with the group as a closing activity to tie in with the days theme and activities.

For the fundamental movement skills we practiced kicking, throwing and catching and obstacle courses. We also had a great game of football with the kids as a warm up for the mums before their exercise session. A lot more of the adult warm ups will involve games with the kids, so everyone is participating- also, its lots of fun!

Here are a couple of pictures from Sam’s ‘me’ book. I will post up pics of what the other kids have been up to in the next week or so.
