    Skipping was recently used as a focus in an MA in Education dissertation at Plymouth Marjon University. Young people taking part in skipping workshops and then following up with regular personal challenges were found to improve their attainment:

    “‘Pupils undertaking a physical activity intervention once a week gained an extra mark on a test paper, which doubled for those who undertook a physical activity intervention twice a week.’

    ‘SATS improvement findings were consistent across both literacy or numeracy curriculum areas, with a notable benefit identified for low ability pupils in the subject of numeracy. These results suggest that short, high intensity physical activity bursts, when placed strategically within the context of a school day, can have a positive impact on literacy and numeracy attainment.’”

    Skip2Bfit have been in touch with Active Partnerships to promote their offer and it really is worth checking out if you want an activity that the whole school can take part in. Find out more from their website HERE
