Zara, Naomi and Bryony from our Puddle Ducks Worcestershire team visited Sandhills Nursery in Wombourne with their fluffy friend Puddle the Duck and had a SUPER time!!
The children in Mr Bump’s, Mr Messy’s and Mr Clever’s took part in a special ‘dry’ lesson during drowning prevention week, where they shared their experiences of swimming and how to be safe in the water.
Zara and Naomi with the help of Puddle the Duck, showed the children how to use their arms and legs to splash and kick, which helps them swim really fast when in the water. All the children also got to practice our swimming techniques such as Lion (reaching arms/front crawl), Frog (breaststroke arms) and Crocodile (jumping arms). Whilst singing lots of our Puddle Ducks songs which we use in our lessons including Three Puddle Ducks Went Swimming One Day and All the Puddle Ducks Sitting By The Water.
Everyone had lots of fun dancing and singing and Puddle was very impressed with all the children (and staff!). At the end of the session, everyone enjoyed a BIG cuddle from Puddle and each child received their own special certificate for taking part, along with a goodie bag full of Puddle Ducks treats.
