With Swimming Sports heats finished, we have been practicing our survival swimming techniques with the help from Wendy at Swimsafe.
We have learnt how to scull and float on the top of the water, swimming in rough water and breathing properly when swimming. The children used flutter-boards to push the water back and forth to create rough water so that we could learn how to swim through rough water. The children found it difficult to breath when swimming on the top of the water but as they kept swimming they realised swimming under the rough water and holding their breath worked better.
I am so proud of Room 3 and the tuī syndicate on their amazing improvement with their confidence and survival swimming skills. Keep up the hard work Tuī kids.
Heres some pics of our swimming.
