Our children returned to school after the holidays with a hop and a skip! All the children, from first class to sixth, participated in skipping workshops over the past few days. The workshops included individual skipping skills, partner skipping skills, double dutch skipping and long rope games and the children thoroughly enjoyed learning and practising some new skipping skills. Some of our children are already expert ‘skippers’ and others were quick to learn new skills and tricks. Our expert coach ensured that the children had a positive learning experience and many had the opportunity to demonstrate the skills that they learned. ‘Skipping Fever’ has taken over and the children are asked to bring their own ropes to school on Thursday so that they can skip at break time.
