‘Core Crunchie’ of the week

06 September 2019

In order for pupils at Elleray to develop their gross and fine motor skills they need good core muscle strength. Both adults and children can be guilty of slouching, not standing up straight, rounding their shoulders and having weak tummy muscles. This year the Elleray pupils (and hopefully parents and staff will join us) are going to concentrate on a different core exercise each week. These exercises will be repeated as often as they can during the school day. Each week one pupil will demonstrate the exercise in assembly on Friday and an image and description will appear here and on our social media channels.

Welcome to our ‘Core Crunchie’ of the Week!

The ‘V’ Balance

Sit on the floor with your knees bent, feet flat on the floor and arms straight by your knees. Pull in your tummy muscles (abdominals) and slowly lean backwards, keeping your arms straight with your hands either side of your knees. Slowly lift your feet away from the floor and remain balanced and as still as possible. Hold for 20 seconds and repeat 3 times.

Great core strength Brooke!
