Adam has been attending Birds class at The Little Gym for about a term now and will be moving on to Beasts class soon. He’s not as enthusiastic about it as Anya was at the same age and tends to stick to me quite a bit still but I’m slowly seeing some improvement! I really do like the classes at The Little Gym very much and they have fantastic teachers.
We usually begin by playing with some bells and the teacher giving each kid a high-five after getting the parent to introduce the kid. He’s fine with that bit but doesn’t like the walking/ running around the mat which comes after that so he typically tries to make a run for the exit or insists on being carried.
When we do have some time with the parachute, he’s fond of holding on to one of the handles and going under the colourful cloth. After that, we can wander around freely and try out some skills for the week. His level of enthusiasm depends on the skills being taught. His favourite part of class is near the end when the squishy rubber balls appear, followed by BUBBLES!!
