On the 28th April – this Thursday – we are delighted to be taking part in the Big School Swim with Milborne St. Andrew School!
The Year 4 pupils at Milborne will be joining primary schools across the country in a range of water based activities including a special swimming lesson. Swimming has been taught to children in schools for over 100 years and we at Just Add Water are delighted to be able to do our small part in carrying this on.
Maria from Just Add Water, said “we teach swimming all year round but events like the Big School Swim are very important to us as they help to raise awareness of swimming and get children excited about learning. We are really looking forward to the Big School Swim and hope the Year 4’s at Milborne are as well!”
Swimming is not just an important life skill, it is a great way for children to stay fit and healthy whilst having fun at the same time. It is also just the right level of challenging – difficult, but very rewarding, and an activity which can be tailored to each individual child’s needs and ability level.
We are hoping to reach children who don’t yet know how much fun swimming is and inspire them!
