Jumping Higher

BBC Assembly about olympic highjump.

Ask the assembly how high they can jump. Ask if they have taken part in jumping competitions at school or jumped on trampolines.

Use a metre ruler to measure the height of one of the children. Then explain that Russian high jumper Ivan Ukhov can jump almost two and a half metres and compare it to their height - it may be at least twice the height of most pupils and is a long way to jump.

Ivan is from a city in the centre of Russia called Yekaterinburg. He has always liked sport and before he was a high jumper he played basketball and was also a discus thrower. If the assembly don't know what discus is explain that it's a rubber disc about the size of a dinner plate.

As a teenager he went to a special sports boarding school where pupils go to lessons and also do lots of sports training.
