Gymnastic Festival Write up by Imogen

Great Gymnastic Performances from St. Michael’s School


On 5th of march 2019, 19 children from St.Michael’s went to a brand new venue in Amesbury. They had been practising their routine and were going to show their skills in front of the judge. Their scores were added up to create a team score. All teams were part of the beginner routine; this involved forward rolls and balances. Eight teams in total were in this competition. There were individual prizes too: one for best girl and one for best boy in KS2 and the same for KS1. St. Michael’s took top girl in KS2- Imogen B, and top girl in KS1- Mia. Our school did really well with class 3 finishing 3rd, class 4 4th and class 2……… 7th, winning top KS1 prize… YAAAAAY!!!

 St. Michael’s were the first team to compete and the Year 3 and 4s held their nerve to demonstrate their routines in front of a judge for the first time. All 6 produced routines that were excellent. After their routine they could relax and enjoy the other activities such as vaulting, tumble track, tram-pet, cheer leading, beam, ball exercises and trio/duo balances, that were all to do with gymnastics.

 Class 4, Year 5 & 6, were able to keep their cool, remember the routine and also produced some brilliant balances and turns. The final group for St. Michael’s was Class 2 children. As the youngest children in the school, they should all be very proud of their performances. It is not easy to remember a routine, keep balances steady and forward roll with style all at the same time!

 We did really well and we are looking forward to the next competition!!!
