Autumn 2021

KS2 Swimming

A pool is coming to school, for children in Classes 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11.
We are very excited to be able to run some intensive swimming sessions for ALL KS2 children this year.

The sessions have gone swimmingly so far and there have been so many positive comments from the children.

After the first session, Charlie said, ' I floated on my back. I've never done that before.'

Ines said, ' I really liked the swimming. It was a lot of fun! I learned how to do back stroke!'
 
Anthony said, 'It was great to be able to swim every day.'
 
Cherry said, 'It was great fun especially with a heated pool!'
 
Jaydon said it helped build his confidence. He used to be scared of doing back stroke but now he feels good about it!
 
Thomas said, 'We swam under the object our partner was holding.'
 
Mohammed really enjoyed blowing bubbles and swimming.
 
Lyla said that she had been pushing and gliding under water.
 
Noah said, 'The best part was when I swam to the bottom without the float and went straight back up. The other best one was getting the float, holding onto it with straight arms, kicking your legs and blowing bubbles like a crocodile. I was on the side of the pool and had to kick really fast and she (the teacher) let go off me and I swam straight to the ladder to get out. My mum is going to be so proud!
Ivie was really good too. She was holding my arms and then let go and she just swam. She was as good as me. She went under the water the teacher took the noodle off and she could just swim.'
 
Sonny said that, we used the noodles as speed boats and we had to kick our legs.
 
We will be sad to see Lesley take down the pool tomorrow and the children will certainly be sad to see her go. We already have her pencilled in for a return visit next year.
