To link balances and jumps with locomotion

In this lesson, we will learn how to perform a series of jumps that can be practised safely in the home environment: star jump and straight jump. We will learn to link these with a series of balances. We will also think about the effect of exercise on our body's responses: heart rate and breathing rate.
