On Wednesday last, pupils in Presentation took part in a skipping workshop with Mark McCabe from ‘Skip-hop’.

The aim of this workshop was to encourage children to skip for health, fun and fitness and to encourage skipping in the school playground.

Each class had the opportunity to take part in one of the workshops throughout the day. During these workshops pupils learned a selection of skipping skills, including individual moves, double-dutch, long rope, and
partner skipping. The day ended with a demonstration of skipping skills performed by children chosen from each class.Pupils enjoyed this event thoroughly and many said they now looked forward to getting other family members skipping too!
