Balancing and beam work

We are still doing lots of gymnastics.  Today we did lots of balancing.
We could balance on one leg and then on no legs at all.
We could balance on our tummies, on our bums, on two hands and a foot......
on one shoulder and one leg, on two feet and one hand....
on two hands and a foot, on our backs....
and on our tummies!
We could walk along the beam and jump along the beam.
We can even do fancy dipped walks on the beam.
We got so good on the beam, that teacher turned the bench over and we did our beam exercises on even smaller beams.
We are so good at gymnastics.

Gymnastic vaulting

We had great fun in our gymnastics class today.
We practised squatting on to the vault and doing a straddle on to the vault.
 When we jumped off the vault we did straight jumps, tuck jumps and star jumps
 We presented nicely after each jump.
We love gymnastics.

Hurling fun

Today we had hurling with Timmy. We had lots of fun and learned to step into our swing. It will take a lot of practice to get it perfect ! Try not to hit the ground or YOUR FEET!!! James is doing work experience he was the referee in our matches!

We are doing gymnastics at PE.
We really enjoyed our warm up drills!
We used the big mats to practise our pencil rolls, our tuck rolls, our forward rolls (tumbles), cartwheels and handstands.  Some of us are really good at gymnastics.
