NATIONAL SKIPPING DAY 2021

 Organised by Skipping Workshops

The event on FRIDAY 6th November 2020 was a great success involving over 500 schools and around 100,000 children and we hope schools found our detailed guide, and the 10 free skipping ropes  a positive feature.

The next event is planned for Friday 23 April  2021

NATIONAL SKIPPING DAY 2021

 Organised by Skipping Workshops

 

FRIDAY 23rd April 2021

 

This will be the nineteenth annual National Skipping Day organised by Skipping Workshops.

We are very grateful to the 533 schools that registered for the 2020 event that was due to happen in April; clearly this was postponed and eventually took place on November 6th.

 

Over the years we have received a great deal of feedback from schools and it seems that participating schools fall into two groups: the first are those schools who promote playground skipping on a regular basis throughout the school year and see NSD as a means of celebrating this commitment . By contrast, some schools don’t promote skipping throughout the school year but are happy to take part in NSD as a ‘one-off’ celebration of healthy exercise through skipping. The 2021 event is definitely of more interest to the first group (although we hope all schools will consider taking part.)

 

For schools taking part in the 2021 NSD we have developed a graded scheme of skills, starting with challenges for Nursey and YR children moving forward to skills for children in Y5 & Y6 who have shown a commitment to developing skipping skills. There are 6 levels in all, starting with ‘basic’ (for the youngest children) moving through to Level 5. For those children who complete the tasks in each level we have a certificate which we hope schools will present to those children who qualify. For each level we will send participating schools detailed staff notes to explain the various challenges.

 

If you register for NSD 2021 we will send you details of the skills involved in the basic level as well as Levels 1 & 2 plus a copy of the different certificates for each level.

 

If you feel able to host an all-day-skip visit from Skipping Workshops between now and the end of the academic year we will send you, free of charge, a useful ‘starter pack’ of skipping ropes; this will include 15 child ropes  ( infant and/or junior sizes) as well as a 4m long rope, a 8m long rope as well as one adult rope. The normal cost of the pack is £102 but free to schools who book a visit. We are grateful to NORtech Jump ropes for their continuing support for NSD.

 

Please note, this is a ‘just for fun’ event; there is no registration fee, no fund-raising and no prizes. It is simply an attempt to encourage thousands of children to have some healthy exercise through skipping. If you wish to participate, please return the form below to Skipping Workshops, as soon as possible.

This will be the eighteenth annual National Skipping Day organised by Skipping Workshops. We usually have around 250 schools & 50,000 children taking part. (the record is 262 schools and just over 62,000 children!).

 

The main theme for 2020 is ‘promoting playground skipping’. To support schools that participate Skipping Workshops is preparing a detailed guide with suggested activities for all age groups, starting with Nursery and then specific ideas for all year groups from YR –Y6.

 

In addition, all schools taking part will be sent 10 child ropes  free of charge, courtesy of NORtech Jump Ropes.

 

Any school hosting a visit during this academic year will receive further free ropes as well as a more detailed guide to playground skipping games and activities.

 

If your school wishes to take part in this national event, please return the form  below to Skipping Workshops. Please tick the appropriate space if you want us to send you the guide and provide a postal address so we can send you the free ropes.

NSD2018 is being held on Friday 23rd March.

This will be the sixteenth annual National Skipping Day organised by Skipping Workshops. Last year a record breaking 62,450 children from 262 different schools took part. This year we aim to make it even bigger.

The event is an attempt to encourage thousands of children across the UK to take up skipping as a healthy and fun form of exercise.

To help schools, Skipping Workshops is preparing a free skipping guide explaining all the skips that children will attempt on the day.

For the third year running the event will be sponsored by NORtech Jump Ropes, who are providing unique ‘National Skipping Day’ ropes (one infant, one junior, and one adult rope) to every school that takes part in the event.
