How wonderful it was to welcome Lee from Skip-hop back to Goldfield for a second visit. Skip-hop joined us earlier in the year to introduce some skipping techiniques and routines and WOW! In just a few months the children have really progressed, displaying some amazing new skills and techniques and they really impresses us with their enthusiasm, energy and ability to learn new things.

Please scroll down to view photographs from the day and be amazed at the skills the children have learned. Video clips follow which really capture the children's trust and eagerness to try something new.

Safety first, each session began with a reminder of the safety rules.

First, point your thumbs up, this is the grip to use when holding the handles of the skipping rope. When you are skipping it is important to bounce on your toes, this is to protect your back. Get into the correct starting position, hold the skipping rope, place your hands onto your hips then move your hands forward.

Make sure you have plenty of room in front and behind you. Check, look over your shoulder make sure you have enough space then you are ready to skip!

What a fantastic day we had learning different skipping techniques including individual skipping skills, partner skipping skills, double dutch skipping and long rope games.  You never know what you can achieve unless you try, even if it is hard at first. Be Polly Perseverance, don't give up, just keep trying!

Please scroll down to view some photographs and video clips of the amazing skills the children developed throughout the day.

Safety first!

Before you begin to skip it is important to learn a few safety tips. First, point your thumbs up, this is the grip to use when holding the handles of the skipping rope. When your skipping rope is in the wrong place you always step over it, either forwards or backwards, much easier and safer than trying to pass it over your head and shoulders! Skipping is a marvelous way to keep fit why not give it a go!
