Children from Junior Infants to 6th Class jumped for height and for distance. Great use was made of everyday items to create jumps and to mark distances. Some excellent jumping techniques were used.   More sports day photos https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-kicking/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-throwing/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-egg-and-spoon/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-races/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-running/ https://ransboro.ie/2020/06/17/virtual-sports-day-obstacle-course/
