Swimming

Everyday we have swimming. We have people who are learning to get their faces wet by playing ring-a-rosie.


Some of us are learning to kick so the water bubbles.

And some of us are learning to do freestyle without splashing the water by cupping our hands.


On Fridays we get to practice our swimming by having free time. It is fun!

Today we made a whirlpool. We made it go fast and it started dragging us. Then we went the other way. It was hard because the water was pushing us back. When we finished the water was pushing us along.

  1. If it's not enough to have sunshine, a pool as well. Yep, we are just a little jealous.

    1. Yes we are lucky to have a pool. We have stopped swimming now as the pool isn't heated and the weather is starting to turn chilly.

  2. WOW! Room 14,
    You are doing some great swimming. I love making whirlpools. It looks like you are having a lot of fun.
    Do you know last week everyone in Room 4 brought their togs? I was so proud of them for remembering.
    What are you goals for swimming this year?

  12. Hello,
    I think ring-a-rosie is a great and fun way to get used to the water in your face. About how many times have you went swimming together?

    1. Some of us have only ever been able to swim at school and are still quite nervous of the water. Some of us have been able to swim lots and go to the city pools - Waterworld - and have fun on the weekends and in the holidays. We would all like to swim more.

    1. We are only able to swim while the weather is warm so we swim everyday so that we get as much time learning as we can. Our pool is not heated so once the weather cools we have to stop swimming.
