Practising swimming strokes makes perfect!
It’s been about a couple of months since we last updated about O and A, and they have made much progress! The girls had their swimming lesson on a weekday during the September school holidays, and they are becoming more competent. Both girls are growing in water confidence, and they enjoy practising their strokes. They have learnt the freestyle and breast strokes, and are working to perfect their arm movements.
During swimming lessons, Teacher Yong uses a variety of tools to engage and enable the children to learn swimming effectively. The girls used the dumbbells under their arms to aid in kicking, and stretched their arms holding the dumbbells to practise arm movements. They first practised their freestyle arm movements, followed by practising the backfloat by holding onto the dumbbells to aid floating.
Excellent effort by the girls! Looking forward to watching them grow!
