We are Learning to 'Swim For Life'

This week we started our 'Swim For Life' sessions. 
Twice each week for the rest of term, we will go down to the town pool and have swim lessons with Hayley.

Some of us were a little worried that the pool would be too deep, but everyone gave it a go!
To our surprise, Hayley had some underwater stretchers for us to stand on, so that made us feel safer.
We are sure our swimming will improve this term.
A big thank you to the mums and dads who help with transport, and by getting in the pool.

Why is it important to learn to swim?
Where is your favourite place to swim?


  1. Swimming is very important since we live in a country surrounded by water. We love to swim in our class too. We have a school pool and go twice a week in Term 1 and Term 4. Lots of us do swimming lessons at our local community pool, Huia Pool, too.

    1. Dear Room B5
      It is good that you are doing swimming lessons. We like swimming. Our gym is getting fixed and the pool is part of the gym so we are having our swimming lessens in the town pool. We are having our lessons on Mondays and Thursdays every week until the holidays.
      What days do you have your swimming lessens?

      Bye for now
