Learning outside the classroom
All of our Year 4 children attend swimming lessons at Arcadia Leisure Centre every Thursday with school. Learning about water safety and knowing how to keep safe in water is a life skill, and as such is recognised and measured in the same ways as other key subjects. Please ensure all Year 4 children remember to bring in their Swim Kit every Thursday.
The aims of the swimming lessons are:
*to ensure all Rushbrook Academy children (Year 4 and above) can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25metres.
*Use a range of strokes effectively
*Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
