In recent months, it has been wonderful to see the yard filled with children from Y3 and Y4 keeping fit by trying a variety of skipping movements. Subsequently, the skipping team put in a wonderful performance at the South Tyneside Skipping Competition.

Amazingly, every child in the squad achieved a gold, silver or bronze certificate in their individual or team event. In a close contest all the way to the end, we came a highly creditable close second. This was a fantastic effort considering half of our squad were only Y3.

I was so proud of the team spirit and wonderful dedication to practice after school, lunchtimes and at playtime to reach such a high standard. I am also very proud of how selfless Miss Moffett and Mrs McVittie have been to make time to choreograph and teach a brilliant Skip Dance to the children.
