The children have recently started swimming lessons at Barking swimming pool. We are very lucky to have a coach bring all of the children every other week to develop and learn new swimming skills. We have received support from the parents in preparing them for this new activity; as many of the parents took their child swimming over the holidays, to get them used to the new environment.
The first session went extremely well and the children enjoyed the coach journey to the pool and the sensory experience in the swimming pool. They splashed and learnt new skills, with very patient instructors and our very supportive team who were in the pool too.
The only tears that could be heard were when it was time to leave the water and get changed. Take a look at the Phoenix children Testing the Waters.
