Featuring a full class of children in a real PE environment, Gemma Coles demonstrates how to deliver an effective Pair and Trio Balance lesson. The children in the video are not gymnasts, making the lessons exactly how they would be in an everyday teaching environment. No children were removed because of ability or behaviour. The lesson is differentiated in level to enable the participation and progress of all children.
The lesson starts with a warm-up, in which the children travel around the room in pairs encouraging cooperation and collaboration. After the warm-up, the children are reminded of the fundamental gymnastics shapes which are then used throughout the lesson. This is a good opportunity for you as the teacher to also freshen up on your fundamental shapes.
Once the children have familiarised themselves with the shapes, they then begin to create their own balances in their groups. The children are then given time to develop their own balances. You will notice how quickly the children develop with a good understanding of the fundamental skills. To progress this further, the children then create routines linking together the balances that they have learnt.
This Pair and Trio Balance Lesson is taken from the Head Over Heels Online Teachers Course. Further details can be found at the following link; https://envie-education.newzenler.com/
