All pupils from Junior Infants to 6th class have been taking part in gymnastics lessons with Freda since the beginning of January. We have a full warm up at the beginning of each session, stretching and flexing all the muscles and joints fully that we will exercise during the class.
We have been working on bridges, shoulder stands, forward rolls and backwards rolls using the spring board first for a little but of help. We have moved onto handstands and putting together some of our moves into a simple routine e.g. a handstand into a forward roll and coming up to complete a full rotation jump!
The best part of all is using the springboard and trampoline. Each week we have jumped on the springboard trying to improve our landing technique, landing with our balance on two feet!
Take a look at some more photos below of our gymnastics work.
