Year 4 took part in the Skipping School’s festival today. As part of the festival the children had to perform a variety of skipping skills. Some of the skills included; pretzel, speed bounce, double bounce, cross over, side swing, keep the pot boiling, face to face, butterfly and run in run out. The children have been working really hard to perfect their skills. The 10 children who took part in ‘keep the pot boiling’ did so well they came away with first place!!!
To end the festival, the children performed a skipping dance to ‘Let’s go fly a kite’. This was part of our Erasmus Project (Let’s Fly High in Europe)
A lot of fun was had by all and they should all be so proud of their achievements today.
The kids sent an e-mail to a gentleman called Edo, who makes kites as a hobby.
He gave them a lot of information about the different types of kites.
Moreover he helped them to explore the materials suitable for kite making.
We decided to buy a handmade white kite from Edo and to personalize it with the logo of the project and the flags of the four countries involved: so, now we have our ” Let’s fly high in Europe” kite.
The children love it and they enjoy themselves very much flynig it up high in the blue spring sky!
So much fun!
Great job, class 4^-5^ (10-11 years old)
