Week 1

Swimming Group 1 – Lisa

On Monday 24th April 2017, we went on a coach to go to the Oratory (school) to have some swimming lessons. When we got there we each had to show the leaders (Lisa and Viv) breast stroke, back stroke and front crawl. We then were split up into 2 groups – Lisa’s or Viv’s group. In Lisa’s group, we went over a few things that we’d had to show at the beginning of the lesson. Then at the end we were allowed to do some pencil jumps into the swimming pool which were really fun.


Swimming Group 2 – Viv

On Monday 24th April 2017, Sycamore class got the chance to go swimming at a private school (the Oratory). First of all, we were told to show Viv and Lisa what we could do. After that, we got sorted into two groups – one with Viv (deep end) and the other with Lisa (shallow end). In the deep end, we started to do some front crawl and then practised our back stroke. Then, we did some pencil and star jumps into the deep end. Sadly, our swimming lesson came to an end and Sycamore went back to Fir Tree.
