Parachute and Skipping Festival

22nd March 2017

On Wednesday 22nd March, Robin Class attended the Axe Valley Community College’s Parachute and Skipping Festival.  During our session the children were involved in a colourful display of parachute games which helped develop coordination, cooperation (turn taking and sharing), strength in the upper torso and a sense of fun in their play.  As well as this, the children completed a variety of skipping stations which included long ropes, French skipping and rhymes, electronic skipping, hoop skipping and jumping activities.  Thank you to Hannah Oxley for coordinating the event and to the Axe Valley Year 9 Sports Leaders who ran the session.
