Activity Purpose/ Summary:
The main goal of the class was to practice and improve their swimming skills. We achieved this by doing different exercises, and we also had the swimming noodles as a support for the kids. At the end of the class, the students were allowed to play in the water and do whatever they wanted.

Personnel Input:
We started off the class by dividing them into two groups and then they had a 5-minute play session. After this, we taught them how to float on their back and stomach. At first, it wasn’t easy for them, but they tried a lot and got better after several attempts. Then we repeated the floating exercises from the previous class and explained the correct technique of the kickbacks again. After this, the students had plenty of time to practice with a partner and the support of a swimming noodle. In the end, they had their regular 10-minute playtime.

The kids were able to improve their skills from the previous session, and we saw a lot of great results in the second class! The technique of the kickbacks got so much better, and their water confidence improved significantly. It was clear to see that the kids felt more relaxed and confident in the water compared to the previous class.

Unanticipated Achievements:
A couple of kids swam on their own for the first time without sinking immediately, which is really impressive for just their second session.
