Using Sports Funding effectively

 

!Children having fun and enjoying sport

As teachers, we are sure you are well aware that many pupils spend a great deal of time being physically inactive and that this lack of physical movement can threaten academic progress, mainly because children spend a great deal of time not being fully engaged, or not using their experiences and imagination to focus on classroom learning.


So....how can skipping help improve the learning experience?

 

Getting students to get up and move is so important because it inspires them to think differently, and more importantly, to learn how to think for themselves. We all know that MOVEMENT stimulates the brain; in fact, did you know that students who tip back on two legs of their chairs in class often are stimulating their brain with a rocking motion? Whilst it's definitely an unsafe activity, it just happens to be good for the brain.

BUT...if you can give children the opportunity to engage in focused and inclusive physical activities that allow them to move safely, to engage with peers and importantly, to challenge themselves to do something new and achieve more, your school - and your students! - will reap the benefits.

Harness the positive impact of skipping....

....and host one of our fun and stimulating skipping days!

Our days are packed full of activities ranging from learning single rope skipping skills to skipping with a partner, from trying out skipping within a long rope to moving accurately in Double Dutch ropes. And don't forget our skipping games! 

We have availability over the coming academic year to deliver a new programme of skipping at your school. Plus, as a specialist sports provider, Skipping4Schools’ services will qualify for support from the funding for provision of PE and Sport in primary schools recently allocated by the government.

We deliver:
• Stimulating skipping days for the pupils, giving pupils the basic skills and a motivation to succeed
• Training for teachers, empowering them to keep the school skipping
• Materials that can be used, not only at the time of delivery but that can also be used by the school long after we are gone, thus boosting the value of our day
• Customised skipping programmes to support your school’s specific objectives
 

You can see what other people think how effective and fun our days are here but if you would like to find out how we can get your school moving, you can find out more here or get in touch for a quote, letting us know how many children you have on roll and how many classes in your school.

Come and join Team Super Skippers, we look forward to hearing from you!
