Yesterday the whole school took part in a skipping workshop provided by Mark from Skip n Rope.

“Skipping is a terrific form of exercise that helps a child’s agility, balance, hand-eye coordination and can increase speed through footwork. It teaches children about rhythm and when put into team routines it provides them with team work skills and encourages them to have confidence in their sporting ability”.

Mark Mc Cabe, Skip n Rope.

In the workshops yesterday, the children learnt some footwork skills, beginner to intermediate skipping tricks, long rope games and partner skipping. Once all workshops were completed, some pupils provided a demonstration of the skips learnt throughout the day. A great day was had by all!
