Moving Our Body Parts – Leaping and Walking


  • Leaping is a big jump that helps us move quickly from one place to another.
  • When leaping, we need to bend our knees, push off the ground, and land on both feet.


  • Walking is a regular movement we do every day to move from one place to another.
  • When walking, we need to keep our backs straight, swing our arms gently, and take small steps.

Safety Rules in leaping and walking:

  • When leaping or walking, we must always be aware of our surroundings and look where we’re going.
  • We should avoid running into others and be cautious on uneven surfaces.

Non-locomotor Movements:

  • Non-locomotor movements are movements we make without changing our location.
  • Examples of non-locomotor movements include: bending, stretching, twisting, and balancing.


Use the following questions to assess the pupils’ understanding:

  1. What are the two movements discussed in the lesson?
  2. State 2 safety rules when walking and leaping
  3. Name three non-locomotive movements

Teaching Aids:

  • Demonstration materials
  • Chart or posters illustrating walking and leaping
  • Visual aids for safety rules
  • Group activity props for non-locomotive movements
  • Quiz or assessment sheets
  • Chalkboard or whiteboard
  • Chalk or markers
