As part of the PE National Curriculum, children at Kings Road Primary School learn to swim in Year 3. We currently use Riverside Leisure Centre for our swimming lessons.
Swimming takes place every Wednesday morning. Children are taught in small groups based on their previous swimming experiences and are taught by qualified swimming instructors.
All children are expected to take part in swimming lessons. If you have any questions about swimming in Year 3 please speak to the Deputy Head Teacher who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Children should have the following as part of their swimming kit:
- Swimming costume for girls (no bikinis)
- Swimming trunks for boys (no board shorts)
- A swimming hat for girls and for boys with longer hair
- A towel
- A strong swimming bag, preferably a drawstring bag (no plastic carrier bags as these split very easily)
