We have enjoyed participating in our gymnastics lessons in term one. We joined with 5th and 6th class to develop our skills over a number of weeks. Everyone worked really well with each other and gave each other a lot of support and encouragement while we created our own routines and sequenced our movements. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1irR9ukY6ZbSI1o1F390MBQ_9V_OcSswD?usp=sharing
