Just keep swimming … Foresters in Year 5 get the amazing opportunity to have free – yes, FREE – swimming lessons. You don’t often get summat for nowt but our wonderful school is the gift that keeps on giving.

How did the first day go at swimming ?

 Really good! Everybody listened AND they were amazing. They had no fear of the water and some were swimmers compared to Dory. 🐠

Were you worried our Foresters would be too scared to get in the pool?

Yes, but I needn’t have worried because they were like Ariel from the little mermaid. (Not the scene where she strokes her hair with a fork, we hope! 🧐)

Did any teachers or lifeguards jump in ?

No! Although Miss Kingsley looked very eager…. πŸ˜πŸŠπŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Who was the best swimmer there?

Evie T , she was a like a dancing dolphin . 🐬

Well done year 5 you were awesome !!!


Today at Forest we had a brilliant  last week before we broke up. 😝 We had a big treat on Tuesday, we got to eat some amazing popcorn and also a whole box of oreo chocolates , this was all whilst we watched a film. Everybody got the opportunity to watch their fave movie. Some classes chose Shrek and The Minions but Year 6 chose Hotel for Dogs. We all hoped we would receive a whole bag of popcorn but unfortunately we had to share one between 67 Foresters. 🍿
