Tatty Bumpkin Yoga

If you would like your child to attend the Tatty Bumpkin Yoga club on a Wednesday after school please could you let the school know? It is £5 per class, payable to the school in half term payments. What is a Tatty Bumpkin class? Tatty Bumpkin classes are fun, yoga-inspired stories designed to encourage movement and enhance development. The sessions focus on the ‘well-being’ of the child, providing a firm foundation for social, emotional and physical confidence – all required for future happiness and success. The programme has been developed by educationalists, paediatric physiotherapists, musicians and yoga teachers ensuring the creative, fun sessions are based on sound principles of child development. They closely linked to the EYFS framework and hence follow the most up-to-date thinking on learning and teaching.

Bendy, Giggly, Clever and Strong – 4 Good Reasons for Tatty Bumpkin!

Inspired by yoga. This is ideal for young children, as it combats the loss of flexibility that occurs at around nursery age when children are growing rapidly. Yoga can also improve sleep patterns.

A blend of activity and thinking. Your child will have the opportunity for 45 mins of uninterrupted active play. The sessions encourage your child’s:

Strength, balance and co-ordination skills. These are foundation skills for sporting activities like football or tennis.

Concentration and attention skills. The classes are a mixture of fast and slow paced activities and relaxation. This will help your child to manage their levels of excitement so they can focus. The classes will help them to ‘wake themselves up’ or to ‘self-calm’. This is crucial for general enjoyment of experiences and learning

Communication and social skills. Doing the classes as part of a group encourages your child to make their own suggestions and listen to others.

Music and props: These are specifically written and designed for the sessions to help learning and increase enjoyment!

Inclusive, non-competitive to build confidence. Ideal for boys and girls. The postures are specially designed so everyone can succeed.

Your child will receive certificates, stickers and a poster. This means you can see what they have been doing in the class and can practise the activities with them at home.
