Week Beginning 29.06.2020

Physical Development

There are different ways we can jump. We need to remember that it doesn’t matter what type of jump we do, we always have to land safely by landing on 2 feet and make sure your knees are bent!. When you are getting ready to jump, keep your head up, bend your knees and swing your arms. This will help you jump safely and go further. 

Here are some of the different jumps we were going to do in our gymnastic lessons in school…

  • Star jump
  • Tuck jump 
  • Straight/pencil jump
  • Full/Half turn
  • Squat jump (start in a squat position before jumping up high)

Here are a list of activities you could do at home that involve jumping…

  • Jumping over an object – plant pot, bucket, empty boxes, pillows/cushions (if allowed!)
  • Jumping from spot to spot/ line to line (you could draw spots/lines on the pavement or patio outside). Don’t just put them in a straight line, can you space them out and jump side to side?
  • Jumping over a skipping rope
  • Jumping dice – roll a dice, look at the number rolled and then complete the correct jumping exercise. The first person to complete all exercises is the winner!
      • Roll a 1 = Perform 20 star jumps
      • Roll a 2 = Perform 20 tuck jumps
      • Roll a 3 = Perform 20 pencil jumps
      • Roll a 4 = Perform 20 jumps with a ½ turn
      • Roll a 5 = Perform 20 jumps with a full turn
      • Roll a 6 = Perform 20 squat jumps
