KS2 Rise Gymnastics Competition

Last half term saw the return of the Rise Gymnastics Competitions for Merton Borough and we are incredibly proud of the children who were selected and represented Aragon.

The children selected needed to choregraph their own routine which included a creative start and end position alongside one skill from each of the eight skill areas. All of the children worked hard during their lunch time practising and rehearsing this ready for the event. They also then had to perform two vaults.

First up, was Year 5 and 6 on Wednesday 31st January. Cyrus, Harry, Hollie and Megan headed to Harris Academy in Wimbledon with Mrs Cox and Mrs Stonell to compete against other schools in the borough. On Friday 9th February, Daisy, Millie, Callum and Finley represented the Year 3 and 4 team to compete with Mrs Christelle and Mrs Moloney.

All of the staff were so impressed by the children’s hard efforts and attitudes they showed towards the event. The time and effort the children had put in to their routines really showed with the level of skill they performed. Cyrus and Harry wowed the coaches with their impressive move and were even asked to teach it to the other children alongside Daisy and Millie winning a bronze medal for their vault!

Overall, we were all extremely proud of all the children chosen and their fantastic efforts within the competition – well done everyone! This half term we are looking forward to another 3 big events which include inclusive football, tag rugby development and netball championships.
