13 Mar Gymnastics Glory
Since January we have had the wonderful gymnastics coach Rochelle working alongside class teachers at Gillespie. She has been working hard with classes of children and also with a select few who have shown real flair with gymnastics.
On Tuesday a team of 4 children – years 3/4 (Sam, Ahlam, Isla and Ahmed) who had been working with Rochelle, went to the Islington gymnastics competition where they were up against 9 other schools. The children were assessed in 3 different areas; the Floor, where they had to remember a specific routine, Body Management and The Vault.
The children were phenomenal on the day and came second. Gillespie have never entered this competition before so it made the silver medal even more special.
A huge well done to those children and also a huge Thank You to Rochelle for being such an inspiring gymnastics teacher.
