High jump is a field event that involves jumping for height over a raised object into a specified area (landing foam). It is done with a single take-off (one leg only).

High jump equipment

The equipment needed for high jump are: 1 The upright/Poles

2 The supports for the crossbar 3 The crossbar

4 The landing foam/pit

Basic skills in high jump

There are five skills, which are the following:

  1. The approach run or run-up
  2. The take-off
  3. The flight (clearance of the crossbar)
  4. The landing
  5. The recovery The approach run

This is the running toward the approach take-off. The run must be long enough (between 10 and 15 strides). The jumper could approach from a straight line or from either the left or right angle. The angle of approach is determined by the style the jumper intends to use.

The approach run is slower than that of long jump because speed is of less importance.

The take-off

Take-off has one goal: jumping high. This is the point where the jumper leaps from the ground in preparation for clearing the bar. The take-off foot strikes the ground with a bend at the knee, and the body leans back and springs forward for a flight. The jumper takes off on one leg.

The flight (Clearance of the crossbar)

At this stage, the jumper must achieve a high lift before changing into any clearance technique that could be adopted in clearing the bar. A jumper should use the style that requires the least effort in attempting to clear the bar.

The landing

Landing in high jump does not require any special tactics. A jumper can land on the back, legs or on the side with the shoulder, whichever is comfortable.

Jumpers should not land on their head or neck. Where there is no landing foam, there must be enough sawdust for the absorption of landing shock.

The recovery

The recovery stage in high jump is a stage of resting after landing.

After landing, the jumper walks out of the landing area. If he stays and the crossbar falls, it shall be regarded as dislodging the bar. He should also not walk under the crossbar to the other side.





The topic is presented step by step


Step 1:

The class teacher revises the previous topics


Step 2.

He introduces the new topic


Step 3:

The class teacher allows the pupils to give their own examples and he corrects them when the needs arise




The class teacher wraps up or conclude the lesson by giving out short note to summarize the topic that he or she has just taught.

The class teacher also goes round to make sure that the notes are well copied or well written by the pupils.

He or she does the necessary corrections when and where  the needs arise.



  • is a field event that involves jumping for height.
