This term, the children will commence their 10 week swimming programme at The Elms. Every Friday, the children will have a lesson to help develop their swimming skills, in line with the national curriculum requirements. By the end of Key Stage 2, children should be able to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25m, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
Alongside our swimming lessons, the children will also have a taught lesson of dance, which will culminate with a performance. Throughout the sequence of learning, the children will be taught how to copy and create actions, choose appropriate actions, dynamics, spacing and timing relating to a theme, to plan and repeat actions and to compose a performance with a partner.
