Year 3 and 4 Gymnastic Festival
On Tuesday the 9th of February 2016, Mr Roper and Miss Grainger took ten children from years 3 and 4 to represent our school at a Gymnastic Festival at Erewash Valley Gym Club. This was a fantastic opportunity for the children to learn and develop gymnastic skills using equipment that they would not usually have access to at school.
The children practised their balancing (and bravery) skills on the beam, jump techniques on the bouncy castle runway, floor and routine skills on the tumble mat, jumps and landing skills from the trampoline, and finally, used their core strength on the bars to balance and hold themselves up to be able to do a somersault.
All the children worked incredibly hard and attempted each station, even if it was a little scary! A big well done to Ella, Mia, Page, Chloe, Millie, Jaydon, Amy, Alex and Zoey.
