Swimming by Adam

Have you ever been taught by a swimming instructor before? class 9 walk to the glennes aquatics center for swimming lesson. We learn rocket arm streamline arms small kick freestyle chin on chest all kinds of swimming. I’m in group 2 my instructor is Laura. We need to have swimming lessons so nobody could drown. New Zealand is surrounded by a big oceans of water. There is the south ocean the indian ocean the north ocean all kinds of oceans.        

My instructor laura has been teaching me great stuff my favourite swimming style was gilding. When it came to my turn I was abit worried but when I put one hand on the board and  started kicking my legs in the water like  scissors I was doing it! But I almost sunk at the end of the pretend island.

Next year I'm looking forward to new skills on the board or new skills with my hand’s. I have had the greatest instructor for my group. Next year I’m going to improve by getting in group three.
