This week was our very first swimming lesson, and we loved it!
Some of us were a little nervous entering the pool for the first time, but we all persevered and after a few minutes we were all enjoying ourselves.
We were separated in to teams, Team Tom or Team Andy. Then we went to either end of the pool and followed the instructions perfectly, everyone listened and everyone was smiling.
For the first few weeks some of us will be using arm bands whilst we adjust to the water and gain more confidence, others were allowed to take theirs off during the session. The aim is that eventually we all have enough confidence to be able to enter the pool without arm bands and be able to stay safe in water.
Here is what some of us had to say about our lesson:
"I thought that I was swimming tiger and really enjoyed it."
"I jumped in the pool, floated on my back and blew bubbles, it was a good lesson!"
"It was fun!"
"I was really scared of water before I got into then pool now I'm not."
