NEW Year 4 Swimming 2024-2025

 

Year 4 2024-2025 Swimming Lessons



In Year 4 the children will be having swimming lessons at the Central Park Leisure Centre. 

All parents/carers, please complete Google Form.

Each class will have one half an hour session each week in a block. 

Maple: Autumn commencing: Wednesday 11th September
Willow: Spring commencing: date to be confirmed in Autumn Term
Elm: Summer commencing: date to be confirmed in Spring Term

Maple Class will commence their lessons on Wednesday 11th September 2024 

We expect this to run for the whole year, meaning each class should get roughly 10 sessions each (STC) which will ensure they achieve the swimming requirements of the national curriculum in KS2 which are to:

- swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 meters
- use a range of strokes effectively
- perform a safe self-rescue in different water based situations

The children will leave school in the afternoon, accompanied by Year 4 staff, and we will make our way to Central Park Leisure Centre on foot. We will return to school before the end of the school day.

Your child will need:

  • Swimming costume or swimming trunks (no bikinis please!)

  • A towel

  • A named bag to carry and store their items in

  • A swimming hat 

  • Goggles (not essential, but can be worn if preferred)

Children should come to school in their uniform and will get changed when we arrive at Central Park Leisure Centre. Please note, no aerosols or powders should be given to children, as these can cause problems for children with asthma.


All children, regardless of ability, will be taking part in swimming lessons as they are a National Curriculum requirement. Children will only be exempt from lessons with a signed and dated doctor’s note or certificate. 

If you have any questions or queries about this or any other swimming related issue, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Year 4 team via year4@broadford.havering.sch.uk.

Year 3 certificates

 

As the end of the school year fast approaches, the pupils in Year 3 have been working just as hard as ever. 

In Literacy this week we have been working hard on persuasive writing to help us in creating adverts for out very own marvellous medicine! We have learned about key features of persuasive writing and analysed what makes adverts so effective. 

In Math, the pupils have taken well to their new topic of statistics an have enjoyed working with data and different ways it can be represented. Today we have even used data to make our own graphs. 

Also this week, we had a great time on go bonkers day! We had a great time on all of the bouncy castles and had some well deserve fun, washed down with a delicious ice pole. 

This weeks certificates are the last of the academic year. Well done to all of the pupils who have won awards this year, your hard work shows in everything you do and you should be very proud.
