BUILDING BACKGROUND/CONNECTION PRIOR TO KNOWLEDGE:
Pupils are familiar with the topic in their previous classes.
Long jump is a field event which involves running and then jumping for a distance from a spot into a flat surface called landing pit. The event requires speed, spring and a great deal of body control. The jump has the following five stages (skills):
The run-up is the running to approach the take-off board. The runway for the run-up has a minimum of fifteen strides for a beginner and a minimum length of 40 meters for adults. The run-up is to prepare the jumper to cover some long distance when he jumps/leaps forward.
The take-off is the stepping on and off the take-off board to put the jumper in the air. It is done with one leg (single take-off), and it is an upward and forward movement. The stronger leg is the take-off leg in order to give the jumper a good spring. The take-off board is usually made of wood.
The flight is the action of the jumper in the air after take-off.
The landing is the arrival at the landing pit. It involves learning to land properly inside the pit without committing any landing fault or sustaining an injury. It is advisable for jumpers to keep the legs wide apart while landing for effective balance, and to fall forward while landing.
This is the stage where the jumper regains his position after landing. He maintains his balance and moves forward. He should not walk backward in the pit. If he does, his jump shall be regarded as ‘no jump’. Assessment and evaluation
