Year 5 Swimming

The Year 5's began the Summer term with a big splash! Swimming and water safety are national curriculum requirements and essential life skills for our children. The children were responsible throughout the 2-week crash course and did very well travelling on public transport every day safely.

They were in groups, which helped children learn how to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance, use a range of strokes effectively, for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke and some groups were able to perform a safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
