Each vault was judged individually out of 10, while the floor routine was marked out of 60 - which included the performance of skills, dance movements and group formations.
Mr Woodham, a teacher at Lordship Farm, said: 'Our talented gymnastic stars Riley, Daniel, Florrie, Amber, Luyanda and Maisie showed fantastic agility, coordination, balance and control. As well as performing brilliantly, they all showed a huge amount of politeness and team spirit.
'The children's success was down to their positive attitude, enthusiasm and hard work. The whole school are incredibly proud of them.'
