Stretch, Strengthen and Nearly Do The Splits (Nov 2018)

This term, Buttermere Class were very lucky to have the opportunity to work with some specialist gymnastic coaches based at Penrith Leisure Centre. Every Monday for 10 weeks we stretched our bodies, working through a programme of routine movements (even trying the splits!). We then developed our core gymnastic movements such as forward rolls, back supports, cartwheels and vaults – all using the specialist equipment they have down at the Leisure centre. One of our highlights was improving our core strength to ‘Grandma Shark’!  Our thanks go to Lauren and Jenny who were our coaches, but also Mrs & Mr Elliot and Mrs Sealby who walked us up and down to the Leisure Centre come rain or shine!
