We are working from home and in the office
All challenges listed below in the ‘In This Section’ area.
Skipping is one the best activities for children to keep active and have fun, especially during these challenging times.
Children already need to be at a distance from others in order to skip safely, so sharing skills is not much different from what we have been doing for many years. Plus the equipment is very easy to clean!
• We would like to engage with pupils from all schools in Teesside in a FREE skipping skill challenge.
• We will provide a set of video tutorials with a range of individual skipping skills for children of all ages and abilities in
EYFS, KS1, KS2, KS3 & KS4. The focus is ‘fun first’ with a ‘personal best’ challenge included.
• To stimulate an acceptance that skipping is both a positive fitness exercise and fun to do, promoting increased
physical activity levels.
• To give children of all ages and abilities a positive and rewarding experience, for increased self esteem and wellbeing.
• To support PE Subject Leaders and/or Class Teachers to embed skipping into the PE curriculum and/or playground
activities, and also give Parents and Carers in the ‘home schooling’ environment, a chance to create some fun.
