BEAM (Balance, Education And Movement)
We love using BEAM at school - it helps to support gross motor skills, balance and coordination. Plus it can help improve listening skills.
Let's start with a warm up exercise and then we'll move on to doing some of the main exercises.
One of our favourite warm ups is the "Beans" game.
First, find a space where you won’t knock into anything! Begin by jogging gently on the spot. Ask an adult to call out the name of a bean and you demonstrate the action.
Here's some ideas for your adults to call out:
I'm sure you'll be able to come up with a few other “beans” to include! Perhaps you can be "Teacher" and call the names for your adult to demonstrate. Have fun!!!
