After weeks of practise, Year 4 got the chance to show off their skipping skills at the Gateshead SSP Skipping Festival. Last half term, they took part in a skipping taster session and since then the progress has been phenomenal! Children have perfected their skipping techniques and gained confidence to try new skills. At the event, Year 4 competed against 4 other Catholic schools in individual, partner and team events to showcase all of their skills. They also got creative in their ‘skip-dance’ routine with some impressive rope work (and flossing!) At the end of the event, when they were all skipped-out, lots of children received bronze, silver and gold certificates and all of Year 4 were rewarded with participation certificates to reward their commitment, effort and ‘have-a-go’ attitude. I am immensely proud of all of Year 4 for their hard-work preparing for this festival- Well done!
