Skipping Festival

Today our Y4 children represented our school at a Skipping Festival held at St Thomas More.  They have been working hard, in their PE lessons, to learn a wide range of skipping moves including, face to face, speed bounce, criss cross, pot boiling, side swing, figure of 8 and pretzel.  Today they performed these moves alongside pupils form other school and were judged on their control and speed.  They also performed a ‘Skip Dance’ where they had to incorporate a range of these skipping moves into a sequence of movements performed to music.  The children had a wonderful time, they represented our school beautifully showing great sportsmanship and good manners.  When at the end of the afternoon the points were totalled we topped the table and were announced as winners of the event.  Well done Y4.
