A healthy balance!

This week, year six began their gymnastics journey. Studying balance, the class first took time creating as many different balances as they could in small groups before looking at a mixture of solo and paired balances. Point balances included balances which were support by hands and/or feet whilst patch balances used broader areas of the body such as the back or torso.

The children were asked to create a four balance sequence including two point balances and two patch balances. However, each balance must represent a different fruit or vegetable. Imagination came to the forefront the class created some brilliant sequences, demonstrating control, composure and, of course, balance!
