The return of Athletics!Posted on: 13/06/2021
It was great to welcome Year 7 students back to Athletics Club this week. Students were taught how to perform high jump including the run up approach, take off, body position in the air and landing phases as well as the rules of a high jump competition. The skills practice saw the majority of students progress from 80cm to 1m. It was good to see such encouragement and support between students developing their techniques and performing well. The second half of the session was a mini competition to help students prepare for Sports Day.
Congratulations to Ella and Jessica who both jumped 1.10m! Well done to all those students who took part and showed resilience, never giving up. With Sports Day now just a few weeks away, we continue to encourage all students to attend Athletics Club to practice for events.
