Year 3 children went swimming for the last two weeks of January.
Year 4 children went swimming for two weeks in March.
Year 5 children went swimming for the first two weeks of July.
Swimming forms part of the National Curriculum and all children are expected to participate.
The lessons take place each afternoon and children are back in school ready to be collected at 3.15pm, normal school time.
During the two weeks of intensive swimming course, children MUST bring their swimming kit (costume/trunks and a towel) into school EVERYDAY. Please ensure the swimming kit is in a clearly named bag each day for the 2 week period. Children with long hair will also need a swimming hat.
During their recent swimming course, Year 4 learnt how to keep safe when they go swimming.
Have a look at the reminder on the right and/or visit Swimsafe.org.uk website.
Year 3 have completed their fortnightly block of swimming lessons in January. By the end of the fortnight, 16 children achieved a swimming distance badge, some of these children had never swam before. As a school, we strongly believe swimming for a continuous period of a fortnight can only benefit the children.
