Skipping workshops are always very popular at Widcombe Infant School and we welcomed Skippy John again in October. Each class had their own workshop in which they learnt how to bounce rather than jump for more efficient skipping and how to hold the rope. The older children learnt different types of skipping like backward skipping and turning as they skip. The younger children learnt to skip in a long skipping rope turned by two other people. Skipping is a great way to keep fit and is very popular in the playground.
