West Yorkshire School Games 'Skip into Summer' Project 2022
Following the success of last year's 'Skip into Summer' project, which saw over 35,000 children taking part, we are delighted to share the news today that we are back to do it all again this year!
The project will once again be presented by Skipping School, working in partnership with Yorkshire Sport Foundation who are funding the project as part of the West Yorkshire School Games. Therefore, all resources are being provided FREE OF CHARGE to schools.
'Skip into Summer' will take place during the half term following the Easter holidays, which gives several weeks of very positive activity for children, young people and adults across West Yorkshire.
We will be sharing with you a series of skipping tutorial videos for EYFS, KS1 and KS2 children, so that everyone can take part.
The aim is to inspire and engage your children to get active and have fun, and to create sustainable activity levels and boost self-esteem, confidence and overall wellbeing.
Skipping positively impacts on fundamental movement skills, agility, balance, coordination, fitness levels, playground activity, teamwork, communication skills, and much much more.
For those of you who took part last year, we would love you to join in again and build upon the skills you learnt before. For those of you joining us for the first time, we look forward to working with you to create an enjoyable experience for both you and
the children in your school.
This year the project will have a new and improved format to create more flexibility, and we will also be hosting a 'Skip into Summer Celebration Event' at Bradford Grammar School on Friday 15th July (more information about how to register your school for this
event will be announced).
If you don't have any ropes in school or need to add to current equipment, there is a chance to purchase sets of high quality skipping ropes within the registration form (a perfect use of your Primary Sports Premium funding).
