The Y3/4 Skipping team performed brilliantly in the South Tyneside Catholic School’s Skipping Competition. It was wonderful to see everyone skipping with a smile on their face and encouraging each other throughout. The outstanding performances meant that we became District Winners! The skippers will now progress to the Tyne and Wear Finals.
We achieved an amazing seven Golds out of the ten individual events. Also, we won five Golds in the five team events – which speaks volumes for how well the children have worked together.
The children have enjoyed learning a variety of skipping skills and have showed a commitment to improve their skills, even in their own time. They cheerfully practised during play times, lunch breaks and many even skipped with their parents after school or on weekends.
Amazingly, 9 of the squad was made up of Year 3’s, which makes the achievement extra special, as they were competing against Year 4’s. Well done to the whole squad and we’ll look forward to the County Finals!
