On Thursday each class had a chance to participate in a workshop with Skippy John, As he has visited the school in previous years the children all had a chance to build on what they had learnt previously,
He took each of the classes in turn and taught them skipping different techniques. Each class learnt something new from Reception who learnt the skipping bounce and jumping over a long rope up to the juniors who learnt some tricks and skipping moves. All the children thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and had a chance to demonstrate their favourite move in an assembly at the end of the day.
It has been lovely to see them trying out their new skipping skills this week at break and lunchtimes!
I think Skippy John was really funny and I can now skip really fast.
It is important that we exercise and skipping is a great way to stay fit.
