The start of something extraordinary


Do you need some interesting ways to get your students thinking about their swimming lessons? Try getting your children to reflect on their swimming experiences and encourage them to write down what they are enjoying and what they would like to achieve. Ranking their level of enjoyment in the pool is a great indicator for both students and teachers to gauge how someone is feeling about the whole experience and provides opportunities for discussions to take place about their interests, goals or fears. These are great ways to link the swimming experience to the curriculum areas of thinking, relating to others, managing self and participating and contributing.
