From September 2015 swimming will be on Friday mornings. Swimming terms are as follows:
Year 5 - Swimming in Autumn term
Year 4 - Swimming in Spring term
Year 3 - Swimming in Summer term
Year 2 - Intensive swimming - 18th January - 29th January
Years 3, 4 and 5 each go swimming at the local pool in Dagenham, every week for a term. Year 5 go in the Autumn term, followed by Year 4 in the Spring term and Year 3 in the Summer term.
Additionally, Year 2 take part in an intensive swimming course, swimming every afternoon for a week. This year this will be in January 2015.
At the swimming pool the children are taught, according to their swimming ability, in groups led by a swim coach employed by the borough.
We have a long, well established link with the London Royal Ballet. The Royal ballet come in once a week for half a term, usually in the Autumn term, to teach our Year 3 children ballet. From this children who are seen to have potential in ballet, are selected to have further lessons, provided free of charge by the Royal Ballet school, in order to develop their skills further.
This year we are spending some of our Sports funding, working in partnership with West Ham. They provide us with a coach for a day a week, who is working alongside teachers in KS1, to deliver PE lessons.
Children from most year groups compete in multi-skills events annually. These are organised and hosted by our local Secondary school.
