Well done to Shakespeare class who had an exhausting but thoroughly enjoyable swimming session at the Splash Pool this week. Millie and Courtney bravely jumped into the deep end and safely swam to the side for the first time. We were all extremely proud of them for showing great resilience.

There were also a number of children who managed to complete their 25 metres this week. This a great achievement, as government guidelines state that by the time children leave KS2 they should all be able to do the following:

  • Perform safe self-rescue in different water based situations
  • Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
  • Use a range of strokes effectively, for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke.

We will be swimming every week until the end of the summer term, to give our children in Y6 the best opportunity of achieving these targets before they move on to secondary school.
