Keeping active – skipping

Sunday 13 January 2019

All classes from F2 to Y6 enjoyed a visit from Jodi from Skipping School. Skipping is a great fun sport for all, that can be done alone, with a partner or in larger groups. Each class learnt new techniques and built on the skills they had learnt last year. F2 learnt how to listen for the click so they know when to jump with the big rope. Miss Parling is starting a skipping after school club (contact the office for details). Year 2 and Year 4 children will be entering the Leeds skipping competition this year too. Children are encouraged to bring skipping ropes into school to use at playtime and lunchtime to help them hone their skipping technique and to work towards the new Bronze Marbled Wristbands as part of our 30:30 wristband challenge.
