Golden Hat-trick as Hampsthwaite wins Y3/4 Skipping

Hampsthwaite completed a hat-trick on 22nd March, winning their third competition in a row! After success in the Debating competition then the Netball, Hampsthwaite children have done themselves proud again, this time in the inter-school Skipping Festival. Competing at Harrogate High school, Hampsthwaite earned 7 Golds and 3 Silvers in the 12 skipping events, making our team clear winners overall.

Having prepared eagerly during PE sessions and putting lots of practice in at playtimes, our Y3/4 children have learned a wide range of skipping skills over the last few weeks. Events in the Festival included paired skipping – face-to-face and butterfly skipping – group jumping and individual speed-related skills.

It’s certainly the case that, inspired by Y3/4, skipping has really taken off in the school as a whole. I am sure this will continue into the summer and beyond. Skipping is a great way to have fun, improve skills, get along with friends and keep fit.

Congratulations to all our Y3/4 children – our hearts ‘skipped’ a beat with excitement when we heard you had won!
