Skipping 4 Life day to be held on Tuesday 23rd March and Wednesday 24th March
I am delighted to inform you that we have invited “Skippy John” from “Skipping 4 Life” to work with all year groups to teach various skipping skills for the whole school on the above date.
“Skippy John” (the name Richard Hammond gave him when he appeared on “Total Wipeout”) has over 7 years of experience teaching & demonstrating skipping skills in primary schools across the UK.
Skipping 4 Life’s aim is to encourage children and adults to skip for health, fun and fitness, whilst promoting modern and traditional skipping games, including Individual Skills, Partner Skipping, Double Dutch & Long Rope Team Games.
Children do not need to buy or bring in a skipping rope for the workshop as these will be provided but if you would like to purchase a high-quality British made ‘speed rope’ for your child/family to use outside of school they are available for you to purchase. Please order and pay for these using the WisePay website.
Skipping ropes must be ordered via WisePay by Friday 19th March to enable us to order with the skipping company, cash will not be accepted in school.
These ropes used by international skipping teams are, strong, light and easy to turn to allow children and adults to progress rapidly.
Child Ropes £4.00 each
Adult ropes £5.00 each
4m ‘Family ropes’ £7.00 each
Double Dutch £12.00.per pair
Street / Team Ropes £12.00 each
Below are the days for each class’ session:
Tuesday 23rd March

Please ensure your child/children are in their PE kits for the appropriate day for their session.
We are really looking forward to these days and hope this will inspire the children to engage with skipping and learn a range of new skills.
