JUMP JAM & Jiggle Jam International
JUMP JAM is a ‘Kidz Aerobix’ resource kit created by Brett Fairweather specifically for aged 6 – 12 year old + teachers to challenge fundamental movements skills, increase fitness, develop student leadership and motivate students to move & enjoy exercise.
Jiggle Jam our other resource specifically for aged 3 to 6 year old students, teaches and introduces your students to, timing, rhythm, counting, cross crawling patterning, coordination, imagery, directionality, fine and gross motor skills, indigenous cultural movements, moderate to vigorous cardiovascular fitness, a mat routine for posture and upper body exercises and our final routine offers slow and gentle movements for hand eye coordination, balance and calmness.
JUMP JAM & Jiggle Jam are a fusion of dance & fitness disciplines along with cultural interpretations that capture the look, attitude, posture and elements of Aerobics and Fitness. Did you know…
- In a recent *study in US schools it showed that, if you schedule aerobic activity before your most difficult learning objective, students retained more information.
- The study also proved that physically active students achieve 2x higher academic scores than those who are not physically active.
- Schools where students participated in regular aerobic activity showed a measurable reduction in disciplinary problems.
Below is some feedback we have received from Australian teachers;
“I have never in my many years of teaching found a resource that is so motivating and effective for all. The kids here are daily asking me when will we get new routines, that to me shows that the resource works”. Kym McCabe – Arbor Grove Primary School, Australia
I can’t tell you how much impact Jump Jam has had on these student leaders- especially in their confidence to perform in front of others and revel in the positive difference they are making to others across the school community. Needless to say, we will be continuing with the enrichment classes next year and beyond! Karen Hubbard – Sha Tin Junior School, Hong Kong
Jump Jam has taken off at Boyare Primary School. It is run before school, for those who are interested, between 8:20 – 8:30am (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday). This morning we had about 50 eager children in the undercover area all participating with smiles on their faces and cheering when their favourite song started. Children request Jump Jam during PE lessons and love learning new routines. The feedback from parents and staff has been fantastic. It is a great addition to our school. Rebecca Sheldon – Boyare Primary School, WA
We have mass exercise every Wednesday and we use JUMP JAM as a warm up… The kids like it, especially the younger kids, they really really like it… It is not your normal routines, music is very catchy. Kumutha – Bukit View Primary School, Singapore
Initially skeptical as Singapore children are shy about dance routines, but the music suits the kids. Really easy to kick off the program. Can be easily used in classrooms or the hall. Eddie – Peitong Primary School, Singapore
In this website you will find everything you need to get a good understanding of JUMP JAM & Jiggle Jam and if you are a school teacher, to get the programme up and jumping in your school.
