All our year 5 & 6 pupils enjoyed an amazing time with Waterwise this week; learning how to keep themselves safe in and around water. After a discussion about identifying hazards when openwater swimming; we were soon in the water playing games, including rescuing ducks!
Scafell’s top tips for swimming in open water are:
- Only swim with an experienced or responsible swimmer;
- Wear a swim hat so that you are spotted by boats;
- Never go into water to help someone – find help!!
As well as learning such important life-saving skills; we laughed lots and lots.
After we dried off, we enjoyed a lovely picnic and explored Fell Foot Park!
