PUPILS at Ramnoth Primary School in Wisbech are skipping their way to fitness after learning skipping techniques from an expert.

Lucy Holden of Skip-Hop visited the school and showed everyone how to skip correctly and now there are some very enthusiastic skippers.

PE co-ordinator Suzanne Teverson explained the skipping day was a follow-up to Healthy World fortnight during which the children had been encouraged to follow a healthier lifestyle. They had also taken part in the Tesco Fun Run.

Ms Teverson said: "The children had a fabulous time and since then many have bought skipping ropes and are skipping at break times. It is lovely to see the children taking this up. It does not cost a lot, you can do it any time and it is accessible.
