Skipping Day

My name is Georgie and I am a dancer. Today we are having a fun filled day of learning different types of skipping!

Skipping Warm Up

This activity is just for us to get our bodies warmed up and ready for the day so you will not need a rope for this exercise.

Find an area where there is enough space to skip. Join Georgie and have fun following her moves.

This supports children’s physical development

Skipping Games

In this exercise we will be learning 3 different skipping games that you can play with your friends and family!

Skipping Songs

In this activity I will teach you a fun song to sing whilst skipping and jumping in and out of the rope!

I have added the lyrics and a link to a website with some other fun skipping songs!

This supports children’s physical development, learning the months of the year and expressive arts.

Speed Skipping

In this activity we will be exploring how quickly/slowly we can skip.

 

Ask your child questions like: how does it affect your heart rate? How does it make us feel? How many skips can you do in one minute?

Extension

For today’s extension - here are lots more ideas for fun skipping games!
