Following the introduction to Parkour lesson, students will now know what makes you a good free runner.

Possible follow up lessons may look like this:

The parkour roll
students to explore different ways of rolling safely
I will adapt the content on this parkour tutorial (maybe having it available on an Ipad) and provide a progressive framework for the Students to work through.

I have used the video delay app before now, so that students can walk over to the Ipad and make an immediate self assessment on their performance. They will match their performance to the criteria for the technique and identify an area for improvement or call me over to request they move on.

By the end of the lesson, students should be able to perform a basic vault (perhaps speed or step) or jumping over an obstacle (bench, low box), land and then roll onto a safety mat.

Those with more confidence should be able to vault and roll on just a gym mat.

The Tic Tac
There is a tutorial on the same link as the parkour roll link (above). This could be built into a longer sequence involving a vault / jump and prakour roll.

Precision jumps
The first lesson will probably be based on this skill. However, more progressions can be added to increase the level of challenge. See same tutorial for details.

Breaking down the run up, take off, flight and landing phases of different vaults. Focus on maintaining a rhythm / flow of movement. Combining different vaults in a sequence. Incorporating ideas from previous lessons.

Students to use tutorials from older students that have recorded them on the Ipads.

Vaults to include: speed, step, kong, dash, kash, lazy

Bringing it all together
Allowing the students an opportunity

Throughout the entire unit, learning intentions will be differentiated (using the Academy Must / Should / Could structure), focus on a range of abilities (social, personal, creative, safety, health/fitness), which must lead to improved physical performance.

Every lesson should allow students to move at their own pace through the learning intentions and a range of increasingly difficult movements (whilst always being appropriately challenged). Easier said than done when you have some students that compete at national gymnastic competitions and some students who lack the confidence to perform basic gymnastic movements.
