Hippos Class start swimming today after a long closure of the pool due to Covid 19 restrictions.
Our year 4 class, Hippos, start of our swimming year for the Autumn term. The Spring term is the turn of the Giraffes year3/4 and Summer term 2022 is the turn of Flamingos year 3. The children walk to Braintree Swimming centre, straight after afternoon registration. On entering the swimming centre, they change into their costumes and are then led to their swimming groups. The majority of the group start off in the small pool and over the course of the term are continually assessed and progress through the different groups. Swimming Instructors from the pool continue the teaching as the children move into the main pool, when they are ready to do so.
Swimming is such an important life skill as well as being great fun!
