    National Skipping Day



    National Skipping Day 2017 will be on Friday 21st April!

    National Skipping Day is free to take part in, and all schools
    registering get two free gifts and a free skipping guide.

    National Skipping Day 2016 was held on Friday March 18th, and
    was a massive success, with over 35,910 children from 144
    schools taking part nationwide. For more details read our National
    Skipping Day summary.

    National Skipping Day is an annual event, organised by Skipping
    Workshops and sponsored by Nortech Jump Ropes, where children
    from across the UK celebrate skipping as a healthy and fun form
    of exercise.



    Welcome to the brand new Skipping Workshops website

    Skipping Workshops promotes skipping as a healthy form of
    exercise throughout the UK.

    We organise a national skipping competition, the ‘National
    Skipping Challenge’, visit hundreds of schools a year with our
    proven and high-quality skipping workshops, and we also sell
    gymnastic skipping ropes.



    Skipping is a great activity for people of all ages, but especially
    children. We have found that skipping improves fitness,
    coordination, cooperation, and behaviour. Grab a skipping rope and
    join us!

    Skipping is an ideal form of exercise, as it quickly gets the heart
    and lungs working hard. It is something that can be done on the
    playground or in the school hall, and doesn’t require any expensive
    equipment. Skipping helps develop coordination and cooperation
    skills, and is a form of exercise which can be enjoyed by all.

    Good morning lovely Alphabettys in Happy Chatty Land!

    I hope you're all well and raring to go on this thoughtful,
    fun-filled and scrumptious Saturday!


    International Mother Earth Day



    International Mother Earth Day (Earth Day) is celebrated to remind
    each of us that the Earth and its ecosystems provide us with life
    and sustenance.

    It also recognizes a collective responsibility, as called for in the
    1992 Rio Declaration, to promote harmony with nature and the
    Earth to achieve a just balance among the economic, social and
    environmental needs of present and future generations of
    humanity.

    International Mother Earth Day provides an opportunity to raise
    public awareness around the world to the challenges regarding the
    well-being of the planet and all the life it supports.

    In 2016, Earth Day coincided with the signing of the Paris
    Agreement and was themed around "Trees for the Earth."



    The theme for 2017 is "Environmental & Climate Literacy."



    Education is the foundation for progress. We need to build a global
    citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change and aware of its
    unprecedented threat to our planet. We need to empower
    everyone with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of
    environmental protection.

    Environmental and climate literacy is the engine not only for
    creating green voters and advancing environmental and climate
    laws and policies but also for accelerating green technologies and
    jobs. More information about this year's Earth Day can be found
    on the Earth Day Newtork's website.

    Want to know what your ecological footprint is? Take the Earth Day
    Network's Ecological Footprint Quiz.

    "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name
    would smell as sweet." — William Shakespeare, "Romeo and
    Juliet"


    English, along with French, is one of the two working languages of
    the United Nations Secretariat, and one of the Organization's six
    official languages.

    Because it is so widely spoken, English is often referred to as a
    "world language", or the lingua franca of the modern era.

    English Language Day at the UN is celebrated on 23 April, the date
    traditionally observed as both the birthday and date of death of
    William Shakespeare. The Day is the result of a 2010 initiative by
    the Department of Public Information, establishing language days
    for each of the Organization's six official languages. The purpose
    of the UN's language days is to celebrate multilingualism and
    cultural diversity as well as to promote equal use of all six official
    languages throughout the Organization.
