Gymnastics-Rolls

First we warmed up with a game of body parts which tested our co-ordination and listening skills before we stretched our body to prepare it for work. We again tried some yoga stretches. We recapped some of the jumps from the previous session testing the vocabulary remembered from the previous session including tuck, straddle and pike. We then moved onto trying a number of different rolls. We started with an ‘egg roll’ which required us to be on our knees clutching our chest before rolling onto our side. We then tried a ‘log roll’ with increased difficulty- not all limbs being on the floor. We started in a disc shape with arms and feet elevated off the floor before rolling into an arch shape on our stomach with feet out straight and arms out in front. We then tried a forward roll we started in a standing position with our arms up high, we then crouched onto our knees tucking our head between our arms before rolling. We used our hands to support us. The last roll we tried was the ‘teddybear roll’ we started in a straddle position and positioned our hands under our knees. We leaned onto one shoulder and kicked with the opposite leg to turn half a turn. We then tried with a partner doing synchronised rolls.
