Parachute and Skipping Festival

26th March 2019
On Tues 26th March Robin Class attended a Parachute and Skipping Festival run by Year 8 sports leaders from Axe Valley Academy.

During the morning there was a colourful display of parachute games on a rotation which included fun games to help coordination. The parachute games encouraged cooperative, non-competitive play and reinforce turn-taking and also help strengthen the children's upper torso. Some of the games included making a huge mushroom and sitting underneath it to shaking off pretend snakes. The children particularly enjoyed the air conditioning parachute game.

As well as this the children completed skipping stations which helped the children learn the skills to skip. These included skipping with long ropes; french skipping and rhymes; electronic skipping; hoop skipping and jumping activities. Axe Valley sports leaders were amazed how well everyone did when trying to skip with the ropes.

Robin Class had a wonderful morning.
