Our Year 6 pupils are greatly enjoying their weekly swimming sessions. We attend swimming lessons at the nearby Evelyn Lowe School once a week, with specialist tuition from a number of dedicated swimming coaches. The range of swimming abilities across Year 6 is mixed, and so we are able to tailor the teaching on offer to help improve everyone within the class.
Confidence is the main aim for the sessions. Once the pupils feel safe in the water, we then start to work on how to improve their technique. These swimming sessions will continue until the end of the term. We will be monitoring the progress, and hopefully be able to report a significant improvement for all pupils at the end of the period.
