Lesson 1- Ways of travelling

We started the session with the game 'Opposites!' This was lots of fun as children tried to do the opposite of the instruction given! What a lot of giggles! We then worked in groups to create sequences using various ways of travelling using different body parts. The children were given the opportunity to develop strength by attempting to support their own body weight and move supporting body parts further away from each other. 

Today's challenge was to move supporting body parts away from each other whilst balancing in order to develop strength and balance.

Lesson 2

Lesson 2: Counter balances and complex sequences 

Today's session gave children the opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of counter balancing when working with a partner as well as extending their arms and legs when holding a balance within a sequence. 

Lesson 3- today we focused on performing rolls taking care with accuracy and technique.

Lesson 4- today we performed a variety of jumps from height with the correct technique and safe landing.

Today, we put together all our balances and rolls to perform a sequence, ensuring it was flowing all the way through. 

The sequence :

Counter balance    Travel    Jump    Roll    Counter Balance   Travel   Jump   Roll
