Year 5  Swimming Lessons


On Tuesday, 1st February 2022, Year 5 children in Falcons, Eagles & Kestrels classes will be going swimming from school every week until Tuesday, 5th July. 

The dates for the sessions are listed below:

Tuesday 1st February

Tuesday 26th April

Tuesday 8th February

Tuesday 10th May

Tuesday 15th February

Tuesday 17th May

Tuesday 1st March

Tuesday 24th May

Tuesday 8th March

Tuesday 7th June

Tuesday 15th March

Tuesday 14th June

Tuesday 22nd March

Tuesday 21st June

Tuesday 29th March

Tuesday 28th June


Tuesday 5th July


The lessons will take part at Rochdale Swimming Baths and the children will be taken by coach, at no cost to you.  The children will be in the pool for one hour and the idea of these sessions is to turn swimmers into better swimmers and non-swimmers into swimmers.

The children will need a swimming costume, a swim hat and towel; there will be an instructor and a life guard at the swimming pool. 


 Please note: as the lesson is 2.00 - 3.00pm, the children will be late finishing school.  When the coach returns to school the children will be taken back to their class and dismissed from there.







Weekly reminders...........

On a Friday children should come to school already dressed

in their outdoor P.E. kit with a school jumper/cardigan on. 

They will remain in their kit all day and do not  need to bring their uniform to change into.

Extended Day - Thursday 3.15 - 4.00pm



 Thankyou, Mrs. Whittaker, Miss. McIntyre and Miss. Gardiner.
