Our Dinkies program is one of our most important age group programs. Much of the skills developed in this program will assist our children in the move to Reception class and the new environment of BIG school. Its in this program that we start focusing on partner work; team building, goal setting and confidence to stand in front of a class.
These are often things that come up in reception that most children have not experienced before. We focus on these life skills so when they do come up, our children have the confidence and the reassurance that they have accomplished them before and thus make a smooth transition into their new school life.
We also start moving from Skills in isolation to skill sequencing. The combining of skills to form a specific sequence of sports skills.
The children are introduced to a wide variety of different skills in each lesson. It is in this stage that they have the opportunity to practice the skills more rigorously developing competence.
Development of a wide variety of ball skills.
Emphasis on individual participation.
Overcoming the fears that dis-encourage sports participation.
Introduction to organized ball skill activities.
