Swimming

Swimming takes place for Years 2-4 and is spread through the school year in class blocks:

 

Puffin Class Swim on Wednesday mornings from 11th September to 20th October 2019
Dove Class Swim on Wednesday mornings from 27th November 2019 to 12th February 2020  (Please note - no swimming on 18.12.19)
Kingfisher Class Swim on Wednesday mornings from 26th February to 6th May 2020
Falcon Class (Y2's only) Swim on Wednesday morning from 13th May to 15th July 2020
Blackbird Class (Y2's only) Swim on Wednesday morning from 13th May to 15th July 2020

 

On swimming days, children will need to bring the following kit with them;

  • Swimming costume (Boys should wear swimming shorts or trunks, not long shorts that fall below the knee. Girls costumes should be one piece, not bikinis)
  • Swimming hat
  • Towel
  • Plastic bag for wet clothes

 

If your child does not have the correct kit, parents/carers will be contacted and asked to bring a kit in before the lesson.

 

Goggles are permitted as long as permission is given by parents/carers. If your child needs to wear goggles during their swimming lesson, then please send a permission note in to school before the first session.

 

The instructors are aware that some of the children can already swim and are skilled at ensuring every lesson is differentiated to ensure they all benefit from this experience.

 

Extra help with swimming lessons is always welcome from parents and carers - walking the children to and from the pool. Please let your child's teacher know if you can help out.
