Swimming 16th October - 1 week

As part of the National Curriculum, children should be taught to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres. They should learn how to use a range of strokes effectively.

To enable the children at Mission Grove to have the best possible chance of achieving this, we take children throughout their time at school. This is the last week at the Olympic swimming pool in Stratford for an intensive swimming course, for your child. It is  beginning Monday, 16th October, for one whole week.  

The children will have lunch at school and travel by coach to the Olympic site. 

We have to take the children in 2 groups 

Crow & Cuckoo will attend the first session and should be back for home time. App alerts will be sent if they are late. 

Chiff Chaff & Chaffinch will attend the second session and should be back for 4pm . App alerts will be sent if they are late. 

The children will need :

  • A towel
  • A swimming costume/trunks (not board shorts)
  • Goggles
  •  A swimming hat
  • Optional – a small healthy snack- a piece of fruit would be ideal

Please make sure that your child does not wear any jewellery for the week of swimming.
