It was a very sunny day. We went to the pool at exactly 9 am. We started the walk by playing a game of “I went to the super market.” We walked with Jane and Mrs Young. When crossing the roads Mrs Young waited anxiously in the middle of the road so all the kids were safe and joyful.

When we got to the pool we got changed and sat on the grass. When I got to the grass I was feeling funny in the tummy. Then we went to the starting blocks and I got on one of the blocks and then I heard the whistle. I flew in to the pool. Everyone was cheering for me! As quickly as 60 seconds it was up, and then I went and got my third place ribbon and went to the sheltered area.

After swimming Mrs Young got us a slushy before we went back to school and had a nice afternoon. I was really proud of myself because I have worked so hard to get 25 meters.
