Introducing intermediate balance
In this lesson, we will develop our gymnastics vocabulary by learning some intermediate balances and think about how using body tension and control can make our balances look effective. We will understand what impact regular gymnastics can have on our body. Please note this lesson will require some physical exercise and additional equipment, beyond a pen, pencil or paper. Please see the equipment slide near the start of the lesson video and make sure your child is adequately supervised when equipment is required. Parents and carers are responsible for ensuring that children follow the correct safety advice provided at the start of this lesson and the instructions the teacher gives during the lesson. Parents and carers are responsible for supervising activities where required and for seeking medical advice in advance if your child has a medical condition that may prevent them taking part in physical activity.
