Year 5 Flight

Year 5 Gymnastics – Vault Practice

Year 5’s current topic is Flight. This topic explores a range of different take-offs, landings and different ways to display flight in composed sequences.

In todays lesson year 5 were using a springboard, vault and large crash mat. The children were challenged to move from the springboard onto the vault table on their knee or if they could their feet. Jumping from the high vault table, allows more flight time in the air. Children practiced performing different types of jumps clearly with squashy landings.

Children were able to put each element of the vault together smoothly and perform with good body tension, extension and control. Have a look at our video to see the end product!
