The Year 4 class will start their swimming lessons next Monday 4th March. This will be the first of 17 sessions that they will complete and they will work towards the National Curriculum principles. The Swimming Curriculum like all other National Curricular subjects is compulsory for our children.
The children will be collected by coach and transported to Mylnhurst School Swimming Pool at 10.30am and return before lunchtime. Mr Baalbergen and Mrs Booth will accompany the children and the sessions will be taken by Sheffield City Council Swimming Instructors. The children will need the following:
- Swimming trunks or costume. Please note that swimming shorts cannot be longer than knee length and bikinis or tankinis are not permitted.
- A towel
Pleas also note that long hair must be tied back, jewellery including earrings must be removed and any new piercings that cannot be removed will result in the child not being able to swim.
The Council are also very strict on the wearing of goggles and insist on all children who want to wear goggles having written consent. Please complete and return the goggle consent form if you would like your child to wear goggles.
