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.
