Who would have bet against it? Our champion skipper took on Mr White for the ultimate skip-off…
and narrowly won by 312 to 305. That’s over 2.5 skips per second, pretty impressive by any standard.
Morning synchronised skipping with key stage 2!
We enjoyed (some staff might say suffered!) a brilliant day of skipping. All classes took part trying to beat their best in two minutes’ skipping. Well done to our champion skippers, and to our overall superstar skipper in year 5.
Every child now skips during the week – every afternoon for key stage 1 and twice each week for key stage 2 – trying to beat their best score. There is also lots of skipping practice at playtime.
What a successful day! Thank you to everyone who baked or bought cakes, to all those who helped run the day – especially our marvellous PTA – and to everyone who came to buy and eat the cakes: what a selection there was! We raised a fabulous £433.18 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
You can read the key slides from this presentation which explained both the importance of reading at home and examples of how best to support it.
Our school council have organised The Great St Mary’s Bake-Off in the school hall on Friday 29 September 2017. Details and timings are being sent home in book bags, but please do support the school council raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
