The whole school was lucky enough to have an expert Gymnastics coach come into school to run some special lessons. We focused on flight and how to keep ourselves safe when we are jumping off the equipment. We started with warm ups, then learnt how to get onto the bench using the correct technique. The younger children put their hands on the white spots and then stepped a foot up one at a time whilst the older children put their hands on the bench and then jumped their feet up. You had to make sure there was enough room for your hands and feet. Then we learnt about how to keep our knees safe when we land a jump. He taught us to bend, hold and stretch, we started by practising on the floor and then we started jumping off the equipment. We are only allowed to jump where there is a mat because this shows us where it is safe to jump. It was a really great day and everyone enjoyed learning a bit more about Gymnastics.
