Hawkchurch Primary School children learn to ‘jump the rope’ for a healthier heart
Skipping lesson paid off when pupils and staff at Hawkchurch Primary School took part in the British Heart Foundation ‘jump off’.
The children had been working together for weeks on new skipping techniques such as the ‘egg beater’ and ‘double under’ as well as learning about the importance of exercise and keeping their hearts healthy.

Event organiser, Clare Cleverly said: “Preparing for the jump off has given our pupils a reason to get active, not to mention have lots of fun.
“The Jump Rope for Heart Scheme helps us encourage healthy habits, whilst creating a more active ethos in school. It’s a fantastic event for school, teachers and pupils.”
