Year 2 Gymnastics
On Tuesday afternoon the year 2 children visited Highfields school for an exciting gymnastics session.
We started off with an energetic game of traffic lights, which had the children running all around the gym anticipating which colour would be used for their next instruction. one of the colours was to travel using only our hands and feet! This was led by the very helpful sports leaders at Highfields, who taught the children how to use different parts of their bodies to travel around a space and even to do handstands!
Whilst having fun and making friends with children from other schools, they were developing their balance and coordination through team building exercises such as, making letters using their bodies and playing fun games. Each child got the opportunity to join in with all the activities and enjoyed having a go and encouraging each other. They each received a certificate and a Highfields values token.
