Thanks to Dave of Skip to be Fit, Year One have all learned to skip following his instruction and had great fun doing so. Some children had complained before attending his workshop that they were hopeless but actually surprised themselves by making real progress and those who were confident at skipping challenged themselves by beating their own scores of skips per two minutes. Of course now they know to follow Dave’s mantra of ‘Practise Makes Better’ they will need to put the time in to improve their skipping prowess but knowing now why it is well worth doing this.
Year 5 also enjoyed their skipping with Dave, and tell us that they keep practicing at home and on the yard. This will make good progress ready for their athletics tournaments and sports day next half term!
