During Stage 3, your pupils work towards being able to swim 10m on their front and back and will be able to swim underwater to collect objects from the bottom of the pool. Rotation skills and water safety knowledge will also be developed.
Here's a fun way to ensure your pupils can jump in from poolside and submerge - "Frogs Jump" (we hope you're singing voice is good!)
Get your pupils on poolside and start singing:
Five green, speckled frogs
Sitting quietly on a log,
Eating the most delicious grubs.
One jumped into the pool,
Where it is nice and cool,
Now there are four green, speckled frogs
Make sure the first player is ready to jumps in when the song indicates.
Get your pupils to turn back to side and climb out. Repeat for all the numbers, adjusting as necessary for the size of the group.
