The Jumping Bean Bag Programme

I would like to introduce you to The Jumping Bean Bag (JBB) – a programme of exercises, action songs and activities designed to teach co-ordination and key motor skills with confidence and to promote social, personal as well as physical development. With classroom resources to support using physical activities to deliver across the curriculum. PRICE LIST available by emailing:

The JBB programme can be used:

  • at the start of the day as a Wake up to Learning 10—min exercise;
  • as a complete scheme of work for PE,
  • as an extra-curricular activity, at Breakfast Club or after school and
    • as a rainy-day play/unsupervised activity.

Resources to Support Learning:

  • The JBB Story Sack which enables schools/nurseries to meet the EYFS target  “to involve parents in the development of their child”.
  • The Story Sack includes DVD, 2x BEANY, 4x Story books, Diary, stickers and a guide book for parents. It can also include the 7-Day Bean Bag Challenge suitable for all the family to have a go at!
