Mr Sportsman visits on Thursdays

Hopping

Physical activities to learn and master!

Mr Sportsman visits Starfish Red every Thursday with loads of physical activities to learn and master.

In this lesson we learnt about hopping, Mr Sportsman challenged us to hop over the ladder with our right foot, then our left foot.  

Hopping involves dynamic balance, with the non-hopping side adding counterbalance and force to assist with the continuous forwards and upwards movement. Hopping is a component of many other fundamental skills, (e.g. in skipping and kicking for distance, in sports like athletics (component of triple jump) and in dance activities)

The children have shown great development and confidence in their physical skills and enjoyment in the sports program.
