For the last 2 weeks we’ve had the opportunity to do swimming lessons. The things we had to bring were our togs, goggles, towel, swim cap and a jacket which was optional. We started our swimming lessons on Tuesday 1st of August and ended on Monday 14th.
On the first day of swimming we had to get changed and then go on the bus to the swimming pool. When we got there we got split into different lanes depending on how good we were. The three lanes were beginner, intermediate and advanced. I was in advanced class with a few of my friends. The first thing we did was freestyle which was kind of easy. Then once we finished we did backstroke. After we did that we did some diving.
On one of the last days of swimming we were able to go on a boat which was really fun because we got pushed off it and we also went under it. When we finished we went to this other activity where someone has to pretend to drown and we have to save them with life jackets, a rope and the rescue bag.
One of my favourite things we did were breaststroke and diving. On the last day we just did our normal swimming. It was really fun and I can’t wait for next year to do swimming again.
