Life Jacket

Last week at Swimming Room 14 got to experience using a life jacket and learn some of the important skills they might need if they were to fall out of a boat. They learnt that it is important to always wear a life jacket when you are out in deep water.





This was great fun. We are so grateful for the experience.

Swimming recounts

This week we worked on writing creative recounts about our experiences at swimming. The aim was to use time connectives correctly to enhance our writing.


First we watched this video to help use remember all of the cool things we did at swimming.



Then we used wrote our awesome stories. Here are some examples.

When  we went to hop in the G.I pools I felt very excited to swim. First we had to go under the water for 10 seconds to wet our body.Then we grabbed a board and  stood on the wall to wait for the instructions.After that the instructor said when we swim we point our feet and  we put our feet together and kick fast. And when you do the streamline you have to put your head down and if you want to have some air you lift your head up but you do not stand up you just lift you head up. After we swam by our self then we went under the lane rope and sat on the  stairs under the water then the instructor said “you have to  kick your feet fast and you have to point you feet.”  Then  the instructor was testing us then she said  when you are finished kicking your feet go under the line and stand against the wall. And wait for the instructor to tell us what we have to do”.Finally  the other class came to swim but we had 1 more minute to swim then we  hopped out of the pool and got our towels and went back to class.  got changed into our school uniform and went out to play.
