  • The next event was the group jump rope where the other members of our group came in fourth but if I had participated it could have been much worse. The aim being to get the members of group through the rope as many times as possible in two minutes. It isn’t as easy as it looks.

  • We were told only a week before that the school was having its sports day (or days) last week Thursday and Friday. Not only that but we were on the teachers team number 5 and were to report to the canteen after classes that day to practice jump rope. Needless to say I was hopeless with my timing as was always the one ruining the rhythm with the group jump rope so it was decided I would be running. How far was still unknown.

  • Extra: Can jumping rope help you on a spelling test? Randomly assign volunteers to two groups: One group will not jump rope, but rather copy down 10 words from a spelling list with pen and paper. Members of the other group will jump rope and work with a partner who will call out from the list each word and its spelling first; the jumper will then repeat it, "jumping out" each letter of the word—one jump per letter. How well do the volunteers from each group spell the words the next day (using pen and paper)?
