I play, I learn, I belong
Welcome to Ladybird Class
We have been learning to skip. We were given our very own skipping rope (with our name on) to use at home and at school.
One of our PE lessons this week was a skipping lesson. We learnt how to stand like a penguin, then flip the rope over our heads. We then could jump over the rope as it reached the floor. Once we could do this we tried to do it quicker, do it backwards or attempt a 'toe stop'.
Once we had practiced with our own ropes we tried the big rope, jumping over the rope as it wiggled like a snake and went up and down like crocodile teeth. Finally we tried to run under a turning rope pretending it was a shark that might eat us! We all had a great lesson.
We are looking forward to seeing the children improving their skipping skills over the next few months. The children are welcome to bring their ropes back to school to use in the playground.
