1/2LK’s swimming adventures


Posted by moya | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on August 29, 2013

Every Thursday the 1/2s go swimming at the Northcote Aquatic Centre. It’s really cool because we get to go on a bus. When we get there we get changed, really quickly, out of our school clothes and make sure our socks are in our shoes and our towels are on top. We are all in different groups for our lessons. We have green, blue, purple, orange, yellow and pink groups. These groups are so we all get the ‘just right’ swimming for us. Some groups have even gone in the outside pool and the deep end. We do lots of cool things like torpedos, chicken-aeroplane-soldier stroke, backstroke and freestyle. When we are finished we get out, wrap our towels around us and get changed in the changerooms. We are really good at looking after our belongings. Once we are dressed we sit down, eat our snack and wait for the bus. Swimming makes us really hungry and a bit tired but we have lots of fun!

The level of joy that swimming with friends, and riding on a bus, has amazed me. What a marked improvement in swimming confidence. Brilliant effort swimming and class teachers.
