Ellie floating and swimming [VIDEO]

Ellie has just completed her 6 weeks of swimming lessons for this season, following on from her first year’s lessons.

Whereas last year Ellie learned to float and call out if she fell in the water, this year she added swimming into the mix, so she swims for a few seconds and then pauses to float on her back and catch her breath before proceeding with swimming. She’s really mastered it now, can swim about half the length of the pool and just keeps getting better. Most importantly, she’s actually enjoying it now that she’s accomplishing something.

  1. Fantastic Ellie swimming so young I was 7 and I thought that was good. Does she have any buoyancy aid around her middle? well done ellie xxx 🙂

    1. Not at all. The whole idea is for them to be able to swim on their own without aid, so that if they do fall in the water when no one is around, they can deal with it. Definitely impressive!
