Athletics Day

Hi everyone
On athletics day I started off with discus.
Miss T told us a basic step pie,hand,swing,release.
The first swing I did was terrible but the rest was actually realy good.
So the finish resultt I was realy proud of.

Next was vortex. I did not like that at all I hardly got past number 1.
It was realy funny though on one of my throws I absolutely did not
follow the one step which is (Dont try to spin it with a flick).

Then was high jump. High jump was pretty basic. We did a jump called a scissor jump.
What you do is if your right handed or left  (footed) you run up to the side of the pole and flick your
LEFT foot up.As your left foot is in air your right foot goes up and if you have skill you will
make it nearly every time.
