Year 4 have been exploring Stretching, Curling and Arching in Gymnastics. Today we used some of the shapes and balances that we had practiced on the mats, and tried to find ways that we could perform them on the apparatus. To further extend our learning, we linked a stretched, curled and arched shaped together using linking movement.
Have a look at some of the stretched, curled and arched shapes we created on the apparatus…
We also used the springboard to stretch our bodies out in the air. We always try to remember to complete our springboard jumps with a squashy landing, which is demonstrated brilliantly in the photograph below.
Well done Year 4!
