Well, okay, the title of this post is a little deceptive. Things aren’t really going swimmingly, we are going swimming! The last two weeks have all been about swimming lessons and the students have been having a great time at the local pool. It’s been fascinating to see them develop their skills as they learn the techniques needed to swim with ease, grace and power. Some of them have made amazing progress. However, the drawback to this is that the classroom work has taken a bit of a hit, with some days being reduced to between one and two hours contact time between myself and the students. Not that I’ve heard anyone complaining, mind! Anyway, even with swimming, we’ve learned how to make movies on the iPads, we’ve produced group slideshows on Google Drive about World War 2 and have developed our skills with area of triangles. It just proves that even with distractions sometimes you’ve just got to dive in and make the best of it.
