On 25th January 2016 Dan the Skipping Man came in to teach us how to skip. Every class had their own session with Dan and Anna. We learnt the skills of how to do a Crossover, a Pretzel and a Double Dutch skip. I could not skip at all but then Dan shared the secrets of how to skip… for example keep your feet together and jump when you hear the rope hit the floor.
At the end of the day all the children in the school were able to showcase their new skills in a special assembly. Jack (Wilson Class) and I won solar skipping ropes for our improvement through the day. We have now a skipping craze in the playground from Reception pupils right up to Y6!
