A huge congratulations to the KS1 girls who took part in the local authority skipping festival.
The team of five were so enthusiastic and excited to be at the event, although a little nervous at first (as it was very busy!) but that soon went when they got out their skipping ropes to practice. The team were the third to perform their routine to music offering a faultless performance and ended to a huge applause.
Throughout the afternoon the team also competed in a speed skipping event and a long rope event. Following this the team had the chance to attend a double dutch skipping workshop and a tricks workshop (some of our team volunteered to show off some of their skippping skills!). They thoroughly enjoyed this and smiled all afternoon. At the end of the compeition the results were given, our team won first place and a huge trophy for their skipping routine which was voted for by the other teams taking part in the KS2 competition. We then went on to scoop up 1st, 2nd and 3rd place medals for the speed skipping competition. What a fantastic result and lovely afternoon.
Well done to all who took part and the excellent coaching!
