Year 4 - Swimming lessons


Living so close to the coast/rivers it is essential that all children are confident in and around water.  As part of the PE curriculum this term your child will be taking part in 4 swimming lessons, each lasting 60 minutes on Wednesdays, on the dates below.  These have been booked through the Tarka Leisure Centre.  These swimming lessons will take place on:


Wednesday, 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st January 2024


We will be travelling by coach to and from the Leisure Centre and children will be back at school in time for lunch.  


The Leisure Centre instructors will assess each child’s current swimming capabilities on the first session and will place them in groups of similar abilities. 


Children will need to come to school wearing their costumes underneath their school uniform.  They will need to bring:-


Swimming Costume

(NO bikinis or board shorts ending below the knee)


Bag big enough to store all clothing whilst swimming

Underwear to change back into.


Please make sure all clothing items are clearly labelled as our changing rooms will be very busy and clothes will get mixed up.  


Please could the children avoid wearing tights and long hair must be tied back.
