Mr. P's Skipping Challenge

As part of our commitment to the health and wellbeing of your children, we are seeking ways to encourage your child to be more active at playtimes.  Mr. P has recently introduced his skipping challenge to the whole school.  It is a brilliant way for your child to engage in short bursts of cardio-vascular exercise, and it is excellent for developing coordination.  It is, of course, lots of fun, and the craze is now sweeping the school!  Everyone from Reception to Year 6 is practising their different styles and techniques, and they seem excited by their own progress.  Please consider buying them a rope so that they can practise at home too.

Mr. P will oversee the challenge on Friday lunch times.  I will let the classes know which Friday is for which class, and I will tick off on a class chart as your child achieves the different criteria of the awards.  I will give out certificates at the end of the challenge (I'm thinking around about the end of May to give everyone a good chance to develop what they can do).  They will be awarded one certificate for the highest award they have earned.
