Successful Skipping Workshops
Recently in the junior school ‘Skipping Workshops’ visited us again for another superb day of skipping. Anthony, the lead coach for the North West of England, came to inspire our pupils to develop their skipping skills, and therefore improve their all-round fitness, health and footwork which will benefit the children in all sports. He worked with children from Reception all the way up to Year 6, and managed to teach many children to first of all skip, and then to produce some stunning skills. These were then performed to the whole school in an action packed assembly at the end of the day!
For the children to learn so much in a day we must thank Anthony for his excellent coaching and many thanks must also go to the PTA who have provided the money to pay for such an enjoyable and inspiring day. This is the fourth time they have funded this event which shows how much they and the school value it. We have seen the children really take to skipping again and hope they continue to do so at home and in school.
