Measurements at the Elementary School in Cezanjavci
On Thursday, October 26, 2017, we performed measurements of children at the Elementary School Janko Ribič Cezanjevci, together with the sports educators from the Sport Society Izziv Pomurje. We measured children, who were already included in the now completed project On the move in the school year 2016/2017 and started their first grade of elementary school.
We took anthropometric measures, such as body height, body weight, upper and lower arm extent, upper and lower leg extent, and we also performed measurements of motor skills. At the same time, the children carried out seven tests, namely, four-legged walking backward, tilt with a stick, bending forward, long jump, body push, sidestep and Poligon 3 minutes. The measurements are merely a follow-up of the measurements done in the On the move project, and we decided to follow the analysis of the already performed research. By doing so, we want to continue to monitor the progress of children and their abilities even after the end of the project.
