On Friday the 16 most of room 18 went to the Otara pools to learn how to swim. There were three instructors and we were put in to three groups. We had to show our level of swimming skills.
First we had to put our arms at the back of our heads and make a rocket. Then we went one by one under the water. We had to kicked our legs as we swam to the first instructor. The next instructor told us to do freestyle to the last instructor. Freestyle is when your arms make big circles which help to push your body through the water.
At the end we got to play some games. One was called Mr Sharkey and the other was hide and seek.
I had lots of fun and can't wait to learn more in our next lesson!
