P5S – Athletics – Long Jump

On Friday we continued with our Athletics topic. This time we were working on our long jump technique. This was quite tricky to do as we are started from a standing jump, rather than giving ourselves a running start before jumping.

In groups we looked at different ways of jumping across the hall and decided on which way would allow us to jump the furthest. Next we took it in turns to use our chosen technique to try and jump as far as we could. Our group members then measured the distance. What technique worked for you? There were some fabulous jumps being made. Please tell someone at home how far you managed to jump. Can you remember how to convert it from centimetres into metres?

Here are a few action shots.
