My first day at swimming

On a nice beautiful day we went to the courts for swimming. We saw Mr Burton for the second time. First we had to go and get changed. Then we went in to the tent and waited for the girls to come, because girls always take ages. When we were ready to go in to the pool we had to wash our feet in a bucket before we went in to the pool. I was the second one to get in the pool in my group. When we got in to the pool we had to hold on to the side of the pool it was so warm that I thought that I was in bed. Then Mr Burton said to swim to the other side of the pool. Then he told us one by one to swim back to the other side of the pool he said if you don't know how to swim walk. After that we played a game called captain’s coming he told us to come in the middle of the pool. Finally he told us how to play then we had to go back and fourth to each side of the pool. After going back and fourth he said scrub the deck so everyone had to scrub the bottom of the pool. After an awesome game of captain’s coming Mr Burton told everyone to come up to the steps. Then he told us to get in to a group of two. I was with Salamona. We had to float on top of the water. If our partner could not do it we had to help them. Finally our time was over, we had to get out of the pool and then it felt like I was in Antarctica. By Dalaney

  1. It is fantastic that you have the pool for Term 3. It sounds like you are having a wonderful time in it so far. I look forward to reading about what else you learn with your swimming skills.
