Year 4 Swimming Lessons
Dear Parents & Carers,
We have arranged for all Year 4 children to have swimming lessons at The Quays in Southampton. We believe that swimming is a life skill that our children need, so we are investing a whole term (at least 11 lessons) of swimming for each child. They will have a hour swimming lesson on a Wednesday afternoon from 1.30pm to 2.30pm. This will be as follows:
• 4W from Wednesday 12th September to Wednesday 12th December (excluding half term)
• 4B from Wednesday 9th January to Wednesday 3rd April (excluding Easter Break)
• 4S from Wednesday 24th April to 17th July (excluding the half-term)
The children will have their morning sessions and lunch at school as usual and will travel by bus to the Quays for their swimming lessons in the afternoon. We will be back by 3:05 pm each Wednesday.
Your child will need swimwear for their swimming sessions and a towel. Please, could we also ask that your child does not come to school wearing jewellery of any kind for the day they go swimming?
The cost of the swimming lessons is covered by the school, but we ask that you make a contribution of £40.00 towards the cost of the coach travel only. You can pay by cash or cheque, (cheques payable to Beechwood Junior School). At present online payments are not available.
Thank you for your support.
