Team GB Activity

You can also practice them while seated on a bench first!

Gymnastics jumps

Male and female gymnasts often compete on different pieces of apparatus, but one that they both compete on is the ‘floor’!  

Some simple floor exercises you can learn are jumps.

Check out the list below!

Tuck jump

  • With this jump, you want to bend your knees when you’re in the air and aim to get your knees as close to your chest as possible.

Wolf jump

  • Once you’ve tried the tuck jump, you’ll be ready to give a wolf jump a go!
  • It’s just like a tuck jump, but instead, you want to keep one leg bent and one leg straight.
  • As you jump, make sure get the bent knee as close to your chest as you can, and make sure the straight leg is out in front of your body.
  • Try and keep your knees together if you can!
  • It’s similar to what the gymnast is doing in the picture.

Straddle jump

  • As you jump up, split your legs to each side, but try and bring your legs upwards away from the floor and closer to your chest.

Split jump

  • For a split jump instead of splitting your legs to the sides (like you would with a straddle jump), you want to jump so one leg goes out in front of you, and the other goes behind.

Once you’ve mastered the jumps, see if you can make a sequence and teach it to your family and friends.

This area is a great place to spot Redshanks and Curlews!


  • Redshanks can be found near the edge of the water looking for a lunch of snails, worms, and small fish!
  • Redshanks can be identified by their long red beaks and legs.

This area is a great place to spot Redshanks and Curlews!


  • Curlews can be spotted all along the Humber and River Hull, so keep an eye out during your whole walk!
  • Look out for their distinctive long down-curved bill and brown speckled body as they probe the mud with their bills.
  • Did you know, the birds with the longer bills are females?

Thank you to Dr Africa Gomez at the University of Hull for the information on local wildlife. Check out the Wild at Hull blog for more urban birds to look out for!

Keep your eyes peeled to see if you can spot any of these waders.
