Four Key Benefits of the 6-Week Swimming Scheme for KS1 & 2

Promotion of Water Safety

The 6-week swimming scheme of work is designed to promote water safety, a critical skill for all children. By integrating water safety rules and activities, the scheme allows teachers to instil in students the importance of safety when around water.

Development of Basic Swimming Skills

The lesson pack focuses on the development of basic swimming skills, including floating, gliding, kicking, and arm strokes. These skills are fundamental to becoming a proficient swimmer and can be built upon in future swimming instruction.

Enhancement of Confidence in Water

Through gradual exposure to water and the development of swimming skills, the scheme aims to enhance students' confidence in water. This confidence is crucial for students to fully participate in water-based activities and to respond effectively in water-related emergencies.

Inclusive and Differentiated Approach

The scheme of work is designed to be inclusive, accommodating students of varying abilities. Differentiation strategies are used to ensure that all students can participate and benefit from the activities, regardless of their skill level or familiarity with water.
