Today we did our first official gymnastics session. We focused on 4 types of gymnastics movements: stretch, straddle, tuck and pike.
We worked by ourselves, in pairs and in small groups practising these movements around the hall on our gymnastics mats.
We got so into our gymnastics that we forgot to take photos. Never fear, we will have some ready after next week's session.
This week our - PERSONAL BEST challenge is doubles skipping. We did this on Monday with each pair recording how many they got in one minute. This Friday we will go out and try and beat this score. Aim for the moon, we say, and if you miss you still reach the stars.

Everyone will help to organise and run an event as well as choosing from  making a flag  making a poster  making a baton  designing a mascot  taking photos / video to share at school assembly and in the school newsletter.
Tomorrow we will firm up our choices and plan how we will achieve this in the set timeframe.
