A somersault is an acrobatic exercise in which a person's body revolves 360° with feet passing over the head. A somersault can be performed either forwards, backwards, or sideways and can be executed in the air or on the ground. When performed on the ground it is normally called a roll.
Jane would often somersault around the garden with her friends all afternoon, during the summer, pausing only for the occasional orange juice or a cucumber sandwich
