Rivendell Physical Education

A Hop, a Skip and a Jump

“Spring forward”, goes the saying reminding us to change our clocks for daylight saving. At Rivendell, we do the same thing when we come back from spring break with our track and field unit. We spring forward in the long jump and triple jump; practice sprinting, relays, distance running, and even racewalking technique; and throw bean bags, balls, javelins (kid-safe TurboJavs) and even the shot put.

Good running, jumping and throwing technique don’t just help in track and field events, but all sorts of athletic competition–or even just getting that wad of paper into the trash can or jump across that puddle!
