Year 6 PE - Gymnastics

This half term we have been looking at gymnastics in greater detail than you may expect.

We have discussed and defined a balance, a pose and a roll and have developed some pretty impressive skills based around these PE actions.

We have learned about muscle stress and contraction and learned a bit more about how our bodies work. Our next step is to create a routine based around pirates but so far here's what we've managed to come up with...

Balanced require core muscle strength and place stress on muscles to support the body's weight.

This balance requires a lot of effort from the core muscle group but this group made the task easier by using each other's feet to lean on.

Poses are easier (see Megan) as there is usually less stress on the leg and adbominal muscles because both feet are usually on the ground.
