Athletics-Ashley Road Track
Today we went down Ashley Road for athletics. First we did warm ups. The warm ups were running while putting our arms in the air, and also side to side facing the wall.
Next we were split up into 3 groups: Relay,High jump and long jump. The picture above is the high jump. The high jump is when you have to jump as high as you can over a bar. Next is the relay. The relay is when you are split into teams and you have to pass the baton between you and the person in front of you and so on.
Next was the long jump. The long jump is when you have to run as fast as you can and then jump into sand. The best thing to do is to raise your arms as you jump. They then had a contest to see who could jump the furthest.
Then we swapped over activities so that we could all play each event. The group from the relay went to the high jump and the group from the high jump went to the long jump and the group from the long jump went to the relay.
