Here are Rowan class doing some counter balance and counter tension in Gymnastics. The children worked in pairs and small groups and we focused on counter tension (small base, wide top) and counter balance (wide base, small top). The children found this exercise very interesting and enjoyable. They also learnt alot about team work as you need to put alot of trust into your partner to stay balanced and focused.
We took some pictures of the class, which can be seen in the gallery below. Please click on the thumbnails for a larger view.
