Cooling down in the pool!
The days have been so hot and humid lately and the children are always bursting to hop into the pool, especially after hearing all the splashing and swimming going on outside our windows. The good thing about being right next to the school pool is that it doesn't take us long to walk there!
We have three swimming groups in our class - Floaters (learning to float and be confident in the water), Strokers (learning and practising correct arm stroking technique), Breathers/Improvers (practising correct arm stroking technique and incorporating correct breathing technique).
Here are some photos of the Floaters group. They are learning to be confident in the water, float on their front and back and put their heads under the water.
Please note - our swimming sessions are on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings. If a child is not swimming for any reason they need to bring in a note.
