This test is to create a baseline measurement for each pupil’s lower body strength and balance. It’s important to remember that there must be no stopping between jumps…although some wobbling might promote some good-natured mocking from the other pupils!

Much like the standing long jump of the Olympics of old, ensure that feet are behind the line for the first jump and measure the distance from the starting line to where the back heel lands at the end of the sequence of three jumps.

A leaderboard updated throughout the year can turn this test into a competition.
