Yesterday we had our first swim for this summer. We were very excited about it.
At swimming, we are learning survival skills in the water. We pretended that we had fallen out of a boat into very deep water and all we had was a piece of wood to hold on to (flutter boards). Some of us tried lying on our tummies on top of the boards, some of us tried standing or sitting on the boards and some of us lay on our boards hugging the boards. We soon found that lying on our backs was the easiest way to float without using lots of energy. We could float for ages like this!
