Hey guys,
I really enjoyed gym it was fun and exciting mixed together at the same time. My favourite part of gym was doing the balancing beam and rolling over tumbling on to the soft base. My goal for the month is to learn how to do a front hand spring. The thing that I tried new was really nothing new. The thing that I wanted to do that someone else did is the foam pit because it looks like fun landing into the pool of foam.

Dear Mr O
My favourite part of gym was the foam pit because I like jumping high and then landing in a soft pit.
My goal was to jump higher so I can do more stunts.
I tried to do a front flip with out falling on my hands when I land.
I tried to do 10 chin ups because Jarrod did but I only got 60% of 10 chin ups.

Sincerely Mckenzie

Question 1: My favourite part of gym was bouncing on the inflated part and doing flips.
Question 2: To do a front flip without hands and a back flip.
Question 3:Yes a front flip but I did not land it but I landed in foam blocks.
Question 4: Bouncing of a pounce pad and doing a full on front flip.

Dear mr/O

My favourite part of gym was doing 2 front flips in the foam pit.

My goal for gym is doing double backflip.

I tried a double front flip and landed it for the first time.

Jett did a backflip and I would like to do that.

From Henry

From Judd

Hello Mr O
My favourite part in gym today would be all the summersaults even if I got really dizzy. I felt so alive when I did the excersize. My goal this month is to do a front flip in the air. Today what I did new was when we had to lift our selves in between two wooden bars. Today I saw other kids in the foam pit I didn’t get a turn but I did have fun.
From Shelby

From Dominica

I really liked the video and what was your favourite video/picture.
can you do any flips?
what I am looking forward to is doing it next week and I also don’t want to have to keep coming back an forward just because we were running and also want to be able to go around to every single one of the activities so that’s what I don’t want to happen.
from Zane :]

My favourite part was everything but the most favourite of all was the sak race on the balloon. My goal is to do a flip. I saw some one leapfrog.
From Tom

To Mr O’tools
I liked your post. My favourite part about today at Palmers Gym was jumping in the foam. I liked doing summer salt into the foam.

From James

Nice post Mr. O

Looks like the children had lots of fun as per usual. Are there any class activities that they don’t enjoy?

I’m in Shenyang China at the moment. I wonder if our up and coming Huntly gymnastic team can compete with the local Chinese children in future Olympic games.
