Swimming lessons underway.

We are already half way through our term one swimming lessons and are learning lots of new skills and practicing old ones!

Here we are learning to relax in the water, floating on our front, with our eyes looking at the bottom of the pool.

Gaining confidence in moving through and under the water is an important skill and lots of fun as well!

Now we are practicing kicking with long legs, from the thigh, rather than just kicking from the knee. It helps us move through the water quicker and stops the teacher from getting so wet!

We mustn't forget about learning to float on our back, aided by a flutter board until we become more confident.

Thank you so much to Chloe, Susan and Marie who are helping us with our learning, and even getting in the water to show us how its done !
