Fun in the Pool

This half term, Year 5 are going swimming every Wednesday afternoon.  Last week we were all a little nervous about the arrangements but also very excited about having an opportunity to get out and about and visit somewhere different.  A coach took us to the Forest School Swimming Pool, and we met our swimming teachers. 

The cool water of the pool was a welcome relief on such a hot afternoon and the children were soon in the water, enjoying their first lesson.  For many children it was the first time they'd been in the water, and they were very brave about putting their faces in and blowing bubbles as well as learning to kick their legs.  Other children had more experience, and they were demonstrating the different strokes they know as well as showing they could float on the surface.  One group even braved the deep end of the pool where they couldn't touch the bottom. 

The class are looking forward to their other swimming lessons which Year 4 and Year 6 are also taking part in.
