On Friday 5th December we had our end of year Gymnastics performance. We had a dress rehearsal for the school. We then did a performance after school for families. The students had been learning a few routines over the last few weeks. I was so proud of them! I was very lucky and was presented with a beautiful bouquet of flowers from the parents that have been helping and the students. Polly did a lovely speech. I will miss you all so much! I look forward to hearing how the club goes next year.

We have had a fantastic year of Gymnastics. We have had 50 students in total. We began the year learning floor, beam and vault skills. We then progressed to bar skills in the playground. The students all learnt age group completion routines. We had 26 students compete in the Interschool competition earlier in the year. This term we have had 38 students coming on a Friday to learn a group routine for our Gymnastics display. I loved watching the students’ progress throughout the year and develop their skills and a love for Gymnastics.
