We have begun swimming again and it is great to see the confidence building in the children. At the moment we have 22 deep water swimmers, 29 swimmers who are perfecting their strokes and 32 swimmers working on moving through the water and learning to breathe whilst moving. The biggest tip I can give the children is to be more confident with their face in the water. Once they are prepared to do that, the rest of the swimming will come easily. Children could perhaps try putting their face into the bath water (of course with an adult watching them to keep them safe) and try blowing bubbles out of their mouth and then nose. I can’t wait to update you at the end of the term.
