Skippy John visited Widcombe Infant School once again on the 12th January. He provided skipping workshops for all the classes. The children reinforced their basic skipping skills; how to bounce and hold their skipping rope correctly. As well as skipping by themselves they learnt how to skip with two children holding a long rope. The children loved the challenges of skipping by hopping rather than jumping, skipping with star jumps, skipping backwards and skipping with a partner. The children had a super day!
Skipping is very popular on our playground and is a great way of staying fit.
