New Week New Challenge 

This week's challenge we have a Standing Long Jump challenge.
Standing with your feet shoulder width apart, how far can you jump.
Take the measurement from your heel where you first land.
If you haven't got a measuring tape use cones or toilet rolls, how many can you jump?
Think about;
- What technique can you use to jump further?
- What body parts/muscles are being used for this activity?
- What sports would require this type of movement?

Think about:

-Ways you can move to collect items, what different forms of travel can you do?
