Sec 1 Track & Field Lessons (High Jump- Kampong Style)

Having introduced students to approach and take-off techniques for High Jump, I decided to try another approach in developing the fundamental techniques for jumping.

So today, we went back to 'old school' kampung games :) we did rope skipping and 'zero point'

Half the class attempted their approach and take-off at the High Jump mattress, while the other half did co-ordination drills with the skipping rope: learning to play 'Zero Point' (yes, I know it's a girl's game but even as a young boy, I played it too- strange that our boys never seem to have heard of it!)

Then the boys tried co-ordinated skipping to work on timing and co-ordination.
Quite a refreshing change today from our usual drills :) Looks like the boys had fun too!
