Year 4 are really lucky this half term because we have Mrs Smurthwaite teaching us gymnastics.
Today we learned all about how to get the equipment out safely and how to be aware of our bodies to help us in our PE lessons. The children were really good at the different travelling and posing.
Year 4 had to think carefully about stretching their limbs and keeping control of their poses. The children learned some techniques to support their bodies that will really help when they move on to more complicated poses and rolls.
We worked on improving our core strength by rolling with our hands and feet off the floor (it’s a lot harder than it sounds)!
Year 4 are really looking forward to next week and working on their gymnastic abilities.
