Gym Time Support Pack
The market survey carried out by KPMG indicated that in many junior and infant schools, the job of teaching movement and gymnastics was falling on non-specialists.
It was indicated that they particularly might find it useful to have some suggestions as to how the equipment might be laid out and used.
Niels Larsen felt the need to offer the purchaser a usable system of which the equipment was only one part, so they approached Kate Pearson to draw up a set of worksheets to help teachers assemble, lay-out, use and store Gym Time.
The support pack consists of 2 cd’s , one containing a pdf file with 22 worksheets, the other an audio file of ‘ The Gym Time Song’ which is suitable for warm activities.
Also included is an allen key for affixing the trestle and bench top pads.
As with all Niels Larsen products, these are made to order so can take up to 6 weeks to deliver.
All Schools are offered a trade account so no payment due until 30 days after delivery.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org on headed paper with official purchase order number included.
The company traded continuously as Niels Larsen Ltd until 1971 when it was acquired by the Sutcliffe Group of Companies. The "Larsen" brand was however, retained by Sutcliffe Leisure in recognition of the exceptional quality of the equipment. In 1995, the sports and gymnastics equipment manufacturing business of Sutcliffe Leisure, including the Niels Larsen manufacturing unit, became independent once again as a result of a management buyout. The new company, again trading as Niels Larsen Ltd, is a wholly owned independent business.
'The personal development and safety of all gymnasts - whether pre-school children or physical training instructors - depends on the quality, stability and structural integrity of the equipment being used. Niels Larsen products are well designed, and manufactured from the finest materials with real pride by our Yorkshire craftsmen. We hope you will enjoy using them.'
