SKIPPING WORKSHOPS FOR SCHOOLS
Learn more about our school workshop below
SKIPnROPE is an Irish owned company providing skipping workshops for schools in Ireland. The aim is to introduce children and teachers to the world of skipping. Skipping is a terrific form of exercise that helps a child’s agility, balance, hand-eye co-ordination and can increase speed through footwork. It teaches children about rhythm and when put into team routines, it provides them with team work skills and encourages them to have confidence in their sporting ability. It is a great way to exercise, maintain good health while having lots of fun. The workshop is a great initiative to help gain the Active School Flag Award or as part of Active Week.
In the SKIPnROPE workshops, I provide the use of skipping ropes to the children for each session on the day. Pupils will learn a host of footwork skills, beginner to intermediate skipping tricks, long rope games and partner skipping. For schools that have already learned the basics of skipping, I aim to challenge them with new routines, tricks, along with developing teamwork skills like partner skipping, long rope and team games.
I will teach every class in the school for approximately 30-40mins depending on the number of classes in the school. Once all the workshops have taken place, the pupils provide a demonstration of the skips learnt throughout the day. During the sessions, I will be picking children to perform in front of the school. The demonstration is 30-40 minutes long; it gives the pupils the chance to see the skills other classes have learnt. I feel it is important for the children to see other pupils performing these tricks so they can learn from each other out on the yard at lunch time or at home.
