When we started swimming most of the children were quite nervous of being in the water and attempting to swim, by the end of the 4 weeks the children were imbued with a real sense of new found confidence.

The children have all been really ambitious and brave in trying all the new skills that they have been taught, blowing bubbles under water, learning different strokes, holding their breath, diving down to the bottom of the pool, jumping in and letting go of the side. These might seem small but they are massive achievements for the Reception children.
