We began with a fun water safety activity rescuing our buddy using a noodle.
We also did a few fun class activities like making waves, swimming through the waves to
the other side, making whirlpools and swimming through hoops.
We finished off with a race involving a buddy and two noodles entwined like a chain.
Over the three weeks of swimming many children have gained in water confidence
and improved in their swimming skills. The middle group have been working on using a
streamlined body position when gliding on their backs.
The more confident swimmers have been working on breathing correctly when doing freestyle
by 'putting their ear on their arm' to take a breath.
