Swimming in Year 4

by Mr Carruthers & Miss Dhanda

Welcome to year 4! 

Understandably, the most common question being asked by children and parents this week is about swimmng. It's all so very exciting and we're looking forward to our first lesson on Tuesday 14th September.

What you need to know:

  • Swimming lessons will be every Tuesday morning. 
  • Wear your swimming kit underneath your school uniform before you come to school.
  • In your kit bag - pack a towel, a swim hat (if your hair covers your eyes) and UNDERWEAR
  • All jewellery, including small stud earrings, must be removed before the swimming lesson.
Girls - a one piece swimming costume
Boys - tight shorts/trunks boys
There is also the option of a full body suit. 
Please see below for examples of swimming kit.

PE lessons are on Wednesdays - the kit for this remains the same - black shorts/leggings and a white t-shirt.

Here is a story version on Little Red Riding Hood.  Have a read, and begin to plan ideas for how we can turn this story into a playscript ready for our live lesson on Tuesday.

Don't forget a playscript needs:

 

  • a charcter list
  • scene numbers and a short description
  • speech - with a colon: following the name of the character who is speaking
  • stage direction - written in present tense and beginning with a fronted adverbial
  • stage direction within speech - (Written in brackets - also in present tense)
