Skipping workshop with 'Skippy John'

On Thursday we welcomed Skippy John into our school; he was full of energy and inspired the children. John taught the children how to ‘bounce’ with your feet and ‘persevere’ with the rope to become a successful skipper. It was amazing to see every child giving it their all! John was very good at ensuring all children left the session feeling confident to skip and keep going, despite getting tired quickly! At school, we talk about resilience and perseverance every day and this really did allow the children to put their skills into practise!
