This magic moment happened a little bit before Christmas at H’s last swimming lesson of the year. It’s kind of traditional to do a badge in the last lesson of term at our swimming classes. H got to try for his 20 metre swimming badge for the first time and he got it too. His swimming really came on in 2013.
Looking back through the year he first swam a length when we were on holiday in May. A few weeks later he backed this up by gaining his 10 metre swimming badge. In September he moved up to ‘lengths’ with a new swimming class. So he’s come a long way this year with his swimming and he really enjoys going. One of his key requirements for a good holiday is access to a swimming pool. I’m really proud of his swimming achievements in 2013 and I’m hoping that he can build on them during 2014 to become a really confident swimmer.
