KS1 Gymnastics Festival - 17th November

A Chance To Shine For Young Gymnasts!


This week it was the turn of our youngest pupils to travel to Priestlands to enjoy an afternoon of gymnastics.

With no competitive element to the proceedings, our team of six were able to enjoy some quality coaching on floor work and use of equipment. Mrs Rand commented on how enthusiastic everyone was to develop their skills and show off their ‘best’ balances and jumps.

The staff at Priestlands set out four zones – individual balances, paired balances, flight and the Air track – and the team moved around each zone in turn. Whilst the focus was on them improving their own performance, they were fantastic at supporting and encouraging one another to improve their performances.

Staff and Young Sports Leaders commented once again on how respectful, polite, enthusiastic and focused the Milford pupils were so, well done to all of the KS1 gymnasts for showing their WE CARE values and having fun.

Thanks, as ever, to Mrs Rand for leading the team and to all the parents who kindly gave up their time to help with transport. A great afternoon was had by all!
