Swimming safely

This week Year 2 went swimming! As many of them have been swimming at school before we thought we should refresh their memory on a few of the pool RULES.

1.Stop, look and listen when asked.

2. Listen out for the pool responders whistle blasts and follow the instruction.

3. No running.

4. Look after the arm bands, floats and pool environment.

All the children got into the pool which made all their teachers and I very proud. We got to take part in some fun games and even carried out a practice evacuation.  Everyone was sensible and calm.


Can you tell me…

  • What does a short whistle blast mean?
  • What does a long whistle blast mean?
