Manx Skipping Challenge

A massive congratulations to all of the schools and their skippers who took part in the 2016 Manx Skipping Challenge and the Celebration of Skipping. A great day was had by all at Rushen school and the children seemed to skip non-stop all day! Once again, the routines were of a very high standard and inspirational to watch. Many routines combined gymnastics and dance moves as well as a pogo stick, scooters, pom-poms, batons and footballs!

Many thanks to Robinson's for they kind donation of fruit, water and prizes and also to the IOM Anti cancer Association for the donation of the skipping medals.

Congratulations to all the winners and 'leader-board' placements and well done to Manor Park for taking home the shield this year.

Welcome to the Manx Skipping Challenge. Here you will find useful links to the KS1 and KS2 leader-board challenges. Scores can be emailed to c.skelcher@manorpark.sch.im by the 15th and end of each month. You will also find links to non leader board challenges which are ideal for encouraging children to develop their skipping skills beyond the leader board challenges.
It would be lovely to have a photo gallery of our keen skippers, so please send in your pictures (with parental consent).

Happy Skipping!
