Every Child Skips is a Vale Royal SSP campaign to encourage every child to take up skipping (or push their existing skills even further) in order to help improve their fitness, coordination and above all confidence!
We are pleased to be working in partnership with ‘Dan the Skipping Man’ to develop suitable content and support schools with skipping ropes.
ECS will start with an introduction to the skill of Single Bounce Skipping and we will then release more skills and challenges each week. These tasks will then remain accessible via the members area of the website.

THE SKILLS
Teachers can use the following videos to help them understand the basic skipping skills before the children are asked to attempt the challenges which help you understand how they are getting on.
The young people can be shown these skills by their teacher (or an experienced leader) or they can watch these videos before trying them.

Key Stage 1
Teacher Introduction
Children’s Welcome
How to Skip
How to Single Bounce

Key Stage 2

The CHALLENGES
There are a number of challenges for each group and each challenges is broken down into three progressive stages (Bronze, Silver and Gold) so that all children are able to develop the skills at a rate appropriate to them.
As the children successfully complete a task they can mark it on their own ‘Record Sheet’ and once they’ve completed a task 7 times they can move on to the next stage.
