Year 2 Focus on Posture

Having good posture keeps bones and joints correctly aligned, so Year 2 are using their muscles correctly!

Strong posture is a very important component of gymnastics and indeed, in life. In developing children, good posture ensures energy is being expended where we want it to go!

The children in 2H were using their posture to hold their bodies tall, with pointed toes and arms outstretched to walk around the hall.  These preparations will help them to create a strong core and enable them to master their skills when they jump, do cartwheels, forward rolls and also when they are landing.  Well done children!
