On the 4th February Year 3 and Year 6 will begin swimming lessons. For swimming your child will need a swimming costume or swimming trunks (Bikinis and swimming shorts are not allowed), a swimming cap (This does not need to be a school swimming cap and can be purchased from any sports shop), a towel and an optional pair of goggles (Diving style face masks are not allowed).
Your child's class will walk to and from Garston Swimming baths and so will need a warm coat on cold days. Your child should not bring money as they will not be allowed to buy anything from the vending machines.
Swimming takes the place of a PE lesson therefore Year 3 will have PE on Thursday (3G on Monday) and swimming on Friday. They should wear their PE kit and tracksuit on Thursday and their tracksuit on Friday.
Year 6 will have PE on Tuesday and swimming on Friday. They should wear their PE kit and tracksuit on Tuesday and their tracksuit on Friday.
It is advisable that your child's name is in their tracksuit in case items are misplaced.
