Over the past two weeks room 14 have had swimming with Room 16. We have been leaning how to swim. One day while we were walking to the pools I saw an eel in the creek.
“Finally we are there” I said as we went in through the pool doors .
When I jumped into the pool I felt deliciously warm. When I pushed myself off the wall I started to kick furiously. As I got to the other side I was exhausted and drained.
While I was in the pool I started gliding gracefully. When I got to the other end and jumped up, I swallowed a gulp of water. I grabbed the flutter board then Ms Squires said “Go!” Off I went with a powerful kick. With difficulty I tried to keep afloat by pushing my stomach up. I thought in my mind I was going to drown but I made it.I said to myself “Yes I made it”.
As I came out of the pool I felt a shock of cold. My teeth started chattering.
We came back to school and it was lunch time
