Swimming Fun...

We had so much fun in the sun today with our friends in E6 for our first swimming session.  It's been several months since we last swam in our pool.  We were reminded how to safely enter and exit the pool, turning at the top of the steps and using the handrail; we made a humongous whirlpool by running around in a huge circle; we did animal jumps across the pool - going in and under and getting very splashy.  We can't wait to go again.

Parent/Caregiver reminder: E7's swimming days are Tuesday and Friday each week until the end of term.  Swimming is part of our school curriculum and all children should participate unless they are unwell.  Please make sure your child brings their togs, towel, goggles & swim hat (if required) to school in a named plastic bag, each of these days - regardless of the weather.  The weather is quite changeable at the moment and may start off awful, but become beautiful - just like today!  The teachers will make a judgement prior to the session about whether the weather is suitable and whether the pool temperature is okay (today it was lovely and warm)...
