As part of Seton Primary School’s focus on health and fitness, they welcomed specialist sports coach, Dave Gibson from Skip2Bfit, for a day of energetic activity.

First, children at the Staithes school completed The Skip2Bfit skipping challenge. “It was more challenging than I thought,” said Floss (10). “It really got my heart beating,” added Lucas (9).

Using digital counting ropes, the children challenged themselves to improve their own scores in a series of two-minute skips.

The fun appealled to all ages and with a range of skipping activities, it wasn’t long before everyone in school was skipping, including the teachers. A series of Boxercise circuits proved to be popular too.

“I like it because I got to box with the pads on,” said Benji (7). The event was an opportunity to raise funds for this year’s Children in Need appeal, with almost £150 through this activity alone. Dave from Skip2bfit added: “We really enjoyed our visit.”
