Next week we will have both P.E and swimming. The children will be moving in lots of different ways, running, slithering, jumping, hopping and skipping. Can they stop when asked? Can they start again? They will have to use their listening skills too! Our first swimming lesson will also take place this week. It will be a nice slow introduction for those children who have not been in the pool yet. It will be lots of fun, singing songs and moving through the water in different ways.
