Weekly media – Gymnastics

25/10/2010

As grade 3 and 5 start their gymnastics units we thought it would be a good idea to show you two youtube videos that show the amazing skills that the top gymnasts have and also how you can do one of the more popular gymnastic moves.

The first is a montage from the Dutch National championships and it is good because shows the full range of gymnastic events from rhythmic and artistic to acrobatics and trampolining, for both men and women.

The second is an ehow clip of how to perform a handstand. This is one of a series of videos that break down many of the moves we do in class and extend those who might be beyond that. The explanations are very good and they also show you how to prepare for each skill. Enjoy watching and enjoy the upcoming unit!
