Jumping Rope!

This afternoon class India spent a chunk of their games lesson 'jumping rope' (a.k.a. skipping). The reason we're calling it 'jumping rope' is because it makes it sound less girly! In fact, we're convinced that this rigorous and challenging activity is for everyone - teachers, pupils, boys, girls, men and women! So, before we write our final unaided pieces of persuasive writing, can we 'comment' as many reasons why jumping rope is for everyone? The more ideas we come up with together, the easier it will be when you come to write independently...

Here's an idea to get you started: jumping rope is for everyone because it develops attributes that are used in many other sports that both boys and girls enjoy e.g. speed for athletics.

Just because we call it skipping aswell, doesn't mean that jump rope is just for girls.

There are lots sports men that skip (jump rope) for training for example boxers ,football players rugby players etc and that proves it is not just for girls.
