Yeah 9 are coming to the close of their gymnastics topic as part of their PE learning. Our final activity involved a gymnastics circuit set up in the school gym
This involves vaulting, rolling, balancing, jumping and upper body strength. PE teacher Mr Lee helped the students to vary some of the techniques involved on each piece of equipment.
Vaulting on the springboard involved half turns, and then adding in straddle or star jumps. Pencil rolls, forward rolls and backward rolls we demonstrated on the large soft mats.
Careful balancing took place along the beam. Some impressive body strength was on show with push-ups as the final part of this activity.
