As part of the Year 3 PE curriculum, this term we will be taking the children swimming last thing on a Friday afternoon. We will be leaving approximately at 1.20pm and returning for home time at approximately 3.05pm. Swimming starts on Friday 17th September. If on some days we are running slightly late, children will still need to be released from school, from the Year 3 door as normal, not from the playground or office.
Without parental support, we would not be able to offer this fantastic opportunity for your child. If you are free one week and would like to help, by escorting the children down to Prince Henry’s and back, you can sign your name on the weekly rota on the Year 3 window in the travel shelter. We require 2 parent helpers each week. As a continuation from last year we would ask if parent helpers could please take a lateral flow test the day before swimming to help keep our community safe. These can be collected from the office the day before swimming.
Children will require a swimsuit and towel in a large swimming bag (A bag for life is perfect because they are also waterproof) on Fridays. Girls will need a swimsuit not a bikini and boys will need to bring swim shorts (not below the knee).
If you have any concerns or questions about swimming, feel free to speak with me directly before or after school, or make an appointment with the office to talk at a time more convenient to you.
