Skipping mania!

Mrs Crookshanks has bought more skipping ropes for every class to use at playtime. The boys and girls are really enjoying playing a variety of skipping games. Some of the staff have been spotted skipping too!

We even have French Elastics / French skipping happening as well. The children tie the ends of a long piece of elastic together to make a loop.Two children stand inside the loop so they are stretching it relatively taut around their ankles. A third person performs a series of hops and jumps, saying rhymes. When finished, the height of the elastic is sometimes raised.

Enjoy looking at some photos below.
