Gymnastics Challenge

Year 6 have been getting creative in Gymnastics!

This half-term, we have been recapping our gymnastic skills including the basic shapes, understand Bing counter-balance and tension and how to create sequences.  We were keen to get onto the equipment so we showed our teachers that we could be safe and trusted when on the wall bars, balancing beams and benches. 

Mrs McLaughlin challenged us to be ready to show our knowledge of the basic shapes as a group when she shouted out straight, tuck, straddle, pike or star. We had to be imaginative within our groups on which every equipment we were currently on - lots of house points were given out! The following week, we learnt about counter-balance (where we had to push against each other to balance ourselves) 

Can you work out which shapes our class are demonstrating in the photos?
