Key Steps Gymnastics
During Term 3, a number of children undertook a trip to Aylesford School to compete in a gymnastics competition. On the day, they took part in the ‘heats and trials’ stage of the competition, which consisted of three spectate stages of gymnastic activities.
Initially, the children were asked to demonstrate their stretching abilities, with a number of different mat-based stretches. After this, the group was divided into smaller groups to undertake body control exercises. These exercises were performed in a small routine, as demonstrated by competition judges. Finally, everyone had the opportunity to use either a balancing beam or a gymnastics horse to complete the final stage of the events.
