Skipping

21st February 2018

This year we have used our sports funding/grant from the Government in a range of different ways. We have purchased a new PE scheme of work and trained staff to deliver the scheme effectively, hired coaches which transport pupils to competitions, we have funded a lunchtime sports coach to run playground games and have paid for external experts to lead activity sessions for children.

 

One such funded activity was a skipping day for all Y4 children.  Skipping is fabulous exercise, and if you have learnt some tricks and techniques, is amazing fun and very rewarding. With this in mind, we invested in a skipping workshop day to enthuse Y4 children to take up skipping and spread their enthusiasm to others.

 

In Year 4 they had a wonderful morning learning all sorts of skipping skills with their special visitors from The Skipping School. Jodi, the lead adult taught Y4 how to do lots of different types of skipping and they all tried really hard to grasp the moves whilst having lots of fun in the process. It was also great to see children supporting each other in learning partners, sharing tips and techniques.  They will be joined by Jodi again in March and will be going to a competition in May at Trinity University.
