Skip Day

Children skipped their hearts out at Langstone Infant School to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.


Pupils took to the school field to do as many skips as they could as part of the national charity 'Jump Rope For Heart' day.

Parents and carers joined their children on the school field for half an hour per class to complete the challenge.

Every child had a go at skipping for a minute whilst classmates counted their jumps.

Parents and staff also had a turn to skip for a minute.
