Buttermere, Rydal Water and Elterwater have been participating in regular swimming lessons throughout the Autumn term. Each class has a 30 minute weekly session to improve skills and stamina. This term we have seen great progress in terms of confidence and everyone can now successfully swim at least 10 metres.
Many children completed a whole stage of progress, some making great gains within a stage and others improving their distance swims. This is a really beneficial part of our PE curriculum and we are so pleased pupils of North Lakes are able to be offered swim lessons every year within the main school curriculum.
Next term children in Year 3 and 4 will begin their lessons – please look out in January for details of the forthcoming swimming galas.
