All you need for this week's challenge is a small space and an object you can use a small hurdle to jump over. Start by standing feet together, next to your hurdle. The aim is to jump by taking off and landing on 2 feet, sideways over the hurdle as many times as you can in 30 seconds. If you land on the hurdle or move it as you jump over it, just reset the hurdle and carry on.
Make it harder
Use a slightly higher hurdle
Try the challenge with a hop
Make it easier
Use a slightly smaller hurdle
Try the challenge by bounding from 1 foot to the other to get over the hurdle
If you would like to share your attempts at each challenge you can ask the grown ups in your household to film you or take a photo of you doing the challenge and then send it in to Mr Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org along with your score and possibly a write up about how the challenge went in your household.
Speed Bounce Demo
My first attempt at the speed bounce using a trainer as my hurdle. A few of my jumps towards the end looked as though I wasn't going over the trainer so not going to count them - I think I scored 68. I will definitely be trying this one again!
Sav, Year 4
Well done Sav, great score and well done for carrying on after you hit the trainer. I can definitely see a higher score coming!
Kieran, Year 6
'This is the speed bounce challenge. I used a higher hurdle and hopped and my score was 56 in 30 seconds.'

Big score there Zach! Huge well done for scoring an impressive 72 bounces in 30 seconds. Not sure Mr Winn would approve of your shorts though...
Well done to Mrs Gill who scored 58 in the Speed Bounce challenge after persevering and Improving on her score each time she tried the challenge. Great example to the children in school this week!
