Gymnastics

Today, we had our first gymnastics session with our PE coach Rachael.

From our science lessons, we know that exercise is important to help us to be fit and healthy. Exercise makes our hearts beat faster to pump more blood filled with oxygen around our bodies.

First we had to warm ourselves up to make sure that we didn’t hurt ourselves. Rachael told us that we needed to follow one golden rule today. ‘Keep our bodies straight.’ This was harder than it looked. We had to try and touch our toes without bending our legs.

We learnt that there are lots of different moves that we can perform in gymnastics. The first three we learnt were straddle, pike and tuck.

Then we looked at different moves that included animals. This move is called the ‘seal’.

This is a star shape.

Other animals we have looked at were: rabbit, spider, frog and caterpillar.

We have had lots of fun and are looking forward to working with Rachael again next week.

REMEMBER:

You need to make sure that your PE kit is in school on Wednesdays. Burgendy or white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps.
