Serious Skipping

Friday 04 May 2018

On Wednesday, we went to Boston Spa High School for the annual skipping competition. This contest is the culmination of weeks of hard work and perseverance on all of the children’s part.

The competition began with the children demonstrating their individual skipping skills: double bounce, speed bounce, crossover and pretzel to name just a few. They also worked as a team to compete in the run and jump in the rope contest.

In this part of the competition, we had some children win bronze and silver certificates for their incredible efforts.

However, the real showpiece was our skip dance routine. The children have worked so hard on perfecting the routine and getting all the moves correct –  some of them were very tricky! Doing this meant the children had to not only skip, but listen to the beat and count a lot to make sure they didn’t go wrong.

Thankfully, all their hard work paid off and they were rewarded with third place! Great work!!
