Our gymnastic lessons have been full of a range of skills. We began the term with performing the level 7 and 8 gymnastic proficiencies, building these into paired sequences. The main focus for each three-part sequence was to completely match or mirror our moves with our partner – this did prove trickier than it sounds!
Following this, we learnt and performed a range of jumps: cat leap, straight full turn jump, straddle jump, pike jump, tuck jump, stag jump and a split leap. During the next week, these skills were then demonstrated by jumping of a carousal of apparatus. It was a pleasure to see the confidence of the children grow over the lesson, as more and more children innovated their travelling across equipment.
