Giving teachers the ideas and confidence to deliver fun, effective PE lessons

We are now offering Hoopstarz as a ready to teach, easy to use, simple to follow package for teachers

Hoopstarz is one of the most exciting, unique and engaging activities available for children and you can’t fail to be impressed by the enjoyment it creates and the sense of achievement the children gain from participating. The classes build confidence and self-esteem, promote the importance of staying fit and healthy and ultimately engage more children in physical activity

You will use up to date music in the sessions which adds to the atmosphere and makes it almost like a party. You will introduce the children to a world of PE that they will all enjoy. They will learn tricks and games, there are hoop wars to be won and skills to be mastered making it a high energy, fun packed session.

What are the Benefits?

  • More pupils taking part in physical activity, even the most difficult to engage pupils will participate, improving health and fitness in your setting.

 What do other schools think?

Hoopstarz is able to engage and motivate children from reception all the way up to year 6 adding changes according to ability and age. Hoopstarz uses up to date music and simple dance routines to warm up the children then they launch into the hoop tricks which the children absolutely love!

Hula Hooping is a fabulous way to keep fit but the children have no idea that is what is happening because they are concentrating on mastering the moves and having fun. But the best benefit of hooping is the ASTRONOMIC effect it has on each child’s self-esteem. There is nothing better than seeing young children, even those with special needs, being able to hoop for the first time ever! If only you could bottle that feeling and the sense of achievement on their faces!!

Now we have a class set of hoops in school they are used every day. We have hoop monitors who set out and collect the hoops every playtime and the children practice and perfect their moves as well as creating their own.

Not only that, we use the hoops in other lessons too. Imagine creating a giant branching key in science, using hoops and skipping ropes or pretending your hoop is a witches cauldron to create spells in literacy or for sorting numbers in a giant venn diagram in numeracy, the possibilities are endless. The hoops are one of the best resources we have bought and has encouraged us to think outside the box especially for our kinesthetic learners who love hands on practical activities.

A few words from happy Hoopstarz...

Our Hoopstarz day across the whole school was brilliant! Children haven’t had so much fun for ages. Loud music, dance skills, posture, all the while rotating a hoop – who could ask for more? It was like 1001 creative ways to use a hoop! I now see certain children in a new light, especially the children from our neighbouring Special School who surprised even themselves. If you can’t spin a hoop at the end of this day I’ll be astonished. Thank you so much to the team for bringing a mega PE experience into our school. Here’s to the next one.

Neil Richmond - Stobhillgate Primary

WOW!!!!! That word sums up our day and your staff! An absolutely fantastic day ran by such proffessionals! We have fantastic coaches visit our school all the time but your staff stood out as the best. I honestly can’t sing their praises enough! Fantastic attitude and professional visiting coaches in our school. They were engaging and fun – the children responded to them so well. The whole organisation of this day and leading up to it has worked so well. We have all enjoyed it and this is only the beginning of Shanklea Hula Hooping stars! I haven’t mastered it yet but I’m sure I will. Thank-you so much again.

Jade Martin - Shanklea Primary School

An absolutely fantastic experience for staff and children alike.  Some children were very unsure about taking part at first until they walked into the hall and started!  The enthusiasm was infectious.    ALL children joined in, some excelled.  The activities were brilliantly explained and demonstrated.  The effect on the children was far reaching.  Some have self esteem issues and these were totally overcome in the half hour session.  One teacher had tears in her eyes as she watched some children progress through the session.  Highly recommend it!!
