Swimming

We are so pleased to be back in the pool at RNAS Culdrose weekly. This six lane pool is 25m long and 1.2m at the shallow end and 3.5m at the deep end. Our children progress so much here and we are fortunate to have four swimming teachers/coaches on our staff. This means we can cater for the differing needs of our pupils within each KS2 class from complete beginners to those who also compete at local and county levels.
Recently we have been working our our stamina, stroke technique and also learning some survival skills. You can see us sculling and treading water below… can you tread water for more than five minutes? These children can and they can do it with one hand above their heads too!

We really value the importance of learning this life saving skill, especially when we live in a county that is almost surrounded by water. Children from Constantine are given as many opportunities as possible to swim and improve their water confidence and abilities in a pool and in open water as these are valuable skills to have when so much of what Cornwall has to offer is near or around water.
