is a favourite Playground Game
at Woodlands Junior School in Kent.
a growing sport on both national and international levels and
is still seen in school playgrounds around the world. There is
more to skipping than just simply turning and jumping over a
rope. Our students enjoy learning new tricks which they love
to show off to their friends in the playground.
Every so often
we invite a professional skipper to run skipping workshops at
our school. He trains a few students during the afternoon, teaching
them skills and tricks and then the whole school is invited to
see a performance. After school many students take up the opportunity
to join in further skipping workshops. Every time the day is
such a success that skipping fever hits Woodlands and our playgrounds
are swarming with children skipping for months afterwards.
