Kayaking Fun

Give Jack a double tick for enjoyment!
Our swimming lessons returned today, or did they? Not quite, but something happened that seemed to get the students of Room 6 very excited. Using Miss Paki's generous gift which are our new school kayaks, we practised a different type of water safety in the pool. Those of us without togs became our assessors and coaches and we had a seriously enjoyable learning time. I am sure others will remember their togs again now!

This is what our buddy assessors looked for:

  • Paddle Hold (right angles, right way, consistency)
  • Balance
  • Overall Safety
  • Speed
  • Enjoyment
Can you see the criteria displayed in this video?
