Year 1 and Year 2 children took part in the “Links Balance Challenge 2020” this week. Children completed 5 gymnastic balances at a level that suited their ability. When children completed these balances, they were judged on the following:

1. Execution – How well do you hold each balance, is each balance held for 5 seconds, strength and flexibility,

2. Creativity – The transitions between are all different, your own flare

3. Cleanliness – Toes pointed, legs straight, strong arms etc

4. Performance – Chin lifted, facial expressions, poise

If your child would like another go at completing the 5 gymnastic balances then show them the pictures and get them to have a go at home. Have fun!
