Little Cricket

Little Cricket is a fun NEW cricket activity class for girls and boys aged 2-4, but it’s more than just bats and balls!

Cricket develops nine of the ten Fundamental Movement Skills, more than any other sport, and Little Cricket classes cover all nine. They are throwing, catching, running, jumping, batting, bowling, balance, agility and coordination.

When a child is confident and competent in the Fundamental Movement Skills they can more easily develop other sport specific and complex movement skills that allow them to enjoy broader sports and physical activities as they grow.

Each Little Cricket session focuses on a different Fundamental Movement Skill, using a combination of fun games and cricket activities to engage and teach the children.

Each session lasts for 45 minutes and is delivered by trained coaches to ensure that every child gets the most that they can out of every class.

Our weekly classes run in York on:
Thursdays at Huntington Memorial Hall:
12.30 – 1.15pm: Maxi (3-4 year olds)
1.30 – 2.15pm: Minis (2-3 year olds)

Thursdays at Piglets Adventure Farm:
10.15 – 11am for Maxis (3-4 year olds)
11.15 – noon for Minis (2-3 year olds)

Fridays at Poppleton Road Memorial Hall:
12.30 – 1.15pm: Maxi (3-4 year olds)
1.30 – 2.15pm: Minis (2-3 year olds)

Singing Fingers Music Classes for Wobblers and Toddlers – Stamford Bridge

Singing Fingers classes are fun, dynamic, multi-sensory music sessions for 1-4 year olds who are happy on their feet.

Kate – a Piano Teacher with 20 years experience – created these classes with the aim of igniting children’s natural passion for music by combining singing, dancing, percussion instruments, and the use of exciting props such as finger puppets and scarves, a huge lycra sheet, and of course the Piano.

Singing Fingers classes are also extra special because they are MULTIGENERATIONAL!

Held in care homes, Kate brings young and old together to create magical and memorable experiences for everyone involved.

“Singing Fingers was such a haven for me and my little girl. She started when she was about 14 months and absolutely loved it. As did I! My daughter knew all of Kate’s songs and we’d sing them at home too – we really bonded over those.”

“Kate’s so full of enthusiasm and has an excellent way of giving the children (and adults!) a boost of confidence to join in.”

Stamford Bridge Classes
Friday’s 10:30 – 11.30am

Next block of 6 lessons are January 11th , then January 22nd – February 15th.  **Please note there will be no class on the 18th January.**  And remember, your first class is always free!

Held in the Beaumont Carehome on Buttercrambe Road.

Swimming with Linzi

Swimming with Linzi is all about having fun in a safe environment, from gaining water confidence to great stroke technique.

I offer baby, toddler and Pre-school lessons, 4 weeks – 4 years of age at Carr Junior School in Acomb, York on Monday, Thursday and Friday mornings. It is a small pool and warm at 31 degrees, perfect for little ones!

I also run classes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for children 2 -10 years at Robert Wilkinson School, Strensall, York, from 3.30-6.30 pm.

When children are confident enough, they can go in by themselves without their primary caregiver. This is a natural progression and one where there’s no age limit. The important thing here is, it’s when the child is ready.

Classes are fun based and relaxed with only 7 children in each class. With the whole pool to ourselves, children really enjoy their lessons and thrive learning to swim. I get to know all the children individually and adapt my teaching accordingly. There is only 1 class running at a time so little distraction from other swimmers.

With over 10 years teaching experience, including my own 3 children, I am fully qualified STA Swimming Instructor, STA baby and pre-school teacher, RLSS lifesaving and recently completed Level 3 Diploma in Aquatic Teaching for Baby and Pre-school. Do check out my recommendations on Facebook!
