Swimming in Year 4:

Every Wednesday, our Year 4 children take part in swimming lessons at AT7. They are grouped according to their ability and develop their swimming skills, which can range from developing their confidence in water, to building their swimming stamina to enable them to swim for 25 metres, which is the national expectation for the end of Key Stage 2. It would be really beneficial if parents could support this learning by taking children to the local swimming baths, after school or at weekends as it is a skill which could save their life. Please remember: for swimming lessons, boys need to wear swimming trunks that are above the knee and girls need to wear an all in one swimming costume.
