Abstract

The introduction of the revised curriculum and the greater flexibility that this now offers, means that gymnastics could hold an important position in the development of a creative and vibrant physical education curriculum. Gymnastics, as a metaphorical umbrella, shelters a collection of activities that provides the teacher with a wealth of choice and numerous teaching possibilities. Artistic, Rhythmic, Compositional / Educational, Sports Acrobatics, Cheerleading, Trampolining, Team Gymnastics, Aerobics, Freestyle Gymnastics, Parkour or Free Running, can all be categorized under the title of gymnastics and can provide the prospect for a variety of different and new activities to be taught within schools. This vast assortment can provide learning opportunities for every child, allowing for a range of teaching styles to be adopted and an array of learning styles to be catered for. Furthermore, this multiplicity allows for breadth and balance, and the personalization of the curriculum, a common theme imbedded within the revised physical education curriculum.
