For the past two weeks Year 5 have been attending an intensive swimming course at Kentish Town Sports Centre. As well as tiring the children out, this course has allowed them to really improve and perfect their swimming skills. On the first day of the course they did a quick test to assess which group they needed to join and since then their progress has been amazing! On the first day of the course, there were some children who were too afraid to even walk in the water independently, however, those same children can now swim 5 meters without a float! The more competent swimmers in our class have moved onto more complicated strokes like butterfly and have even tried diving. I have been really impressed by the progress made by every single child in our class and I hope now they have a new love for swimming that they can continue!
