The next school games challenge awaits!

Additional activities:

 

Long Jump

  • How far can you jump from a standing position?
  • How far can you jump with a run up?
  • Can you work out you average for 3 jumps (add all scores and divide by 3)

 

Triple Jump

  • How far can you jump from a standing start?
  • How far can you jump with a run up?
  • Can you work out you average for 3 jumps (add all scores and divide by 3)

 

Teaching points for the triple jump - 

  • Count your strides/mark out your run up
  • Build up your speed and reach a good pace as you get to the take off board
  • Take off with one foot
  • The sequence of the jump goes hop, skip and jump. (You would all remember me giving you the advice of same foot to opposite foot to landing on both) 
  • Remember, your jump is measured from the closest point that you touch, so it is important you don't put your hands back.
