Charlotte Smith

Charlotte is such a diligent wee swimmer and shes worked hard not just this lesson but every lesson.

Honorable mention goes to her kicking and arms both of which we've seen a massive improvement in with her legs now kicking without being bendy and her arms coming right out of the water and pointing to the stars ! She's starting to look like a real freestyler because at crabs you've got to learn arms, legs, bubbles and breathing ! So much to learn but Charlotte takes it in her stride and has earnt swimmer of the week !


Keep up the great swimming Charlotte !

Liam has cracked it and managed to score the first swimmer of the week for Term 3 !

He's manged to do this because not only this week but every week he tries his absolute best in classes with Madde. He pays careful attention to the tips she gives him on how to improve and its showing across both his freestyle and backstroke technique.

On top of all this he has a brilliant attitude not only swimming but the other kids in the class too and is a great role model !

Regan has worked so hard in his pirates class this term !

He has now managed to get his arms and legs working nice and straight with both his freestyle and backstroke and has built up his stamina so he no longer needs to take as many breaks.

And being able to now breath on both sides has made such a difference to his swimming and made freestyle a lot easier - just a bit more work on his sidekick and it'll be perfect so keep working hard!
