This half term we are studying Gymnastics again in PE and are focusing on balancing.
We started by talking about what a balance was and the different parts of our body we could balance on. We revised some key vocabulary:
- Patches – large parts of our body (such as back, front, bottom)
- Points – smaller parts of our body (such as hands, feet, knees, elbows etc)
- Points of contact – the places our body touches the floor/apparatus
We then experimented with trying to find different ways to balance, depending on the number of points of contact we were allowed. As a challenge we had to try and balance in synchrony with our partner.
