Year 3 Key Steps 2 Gymnastics

We were very proud of our year 3 children at the gymnastics competition. We may be a small school, and this may be one of our smallest year groups, but we are mighty!


There are not many schools that can claim that they take their entire year group to a competition like this - but we can! Our team of four did a fantastic job after practising over the past few weeks with Mrs Ranson. Everybody did their best, and there were some great personal achievements, including children who completed new movements for the first time in the competition itself - just the right time to master a new skill!


The children took part in three disciplines: body management, floor and vault. The children had to remember routines linking different movements, with no support, and then complete two vaults. Despite some nerves, all of the children should be proud of how they got on.


During the awards ceremony at the end we discovered that Chloe had come 2nd in the vault, then the team placings were announced. We were so proud to discover that we had come 2nd overall - a real team achievement.


Thank you to year 3 for all their hard work, and to Mrs Ranson for teaching them the routines. Mrs Davis had a fantastic morning accompanying them, and was very proud of them all.
