One of the most important skills which children can develop in school is that of resilience. The ability to take on challenges, bounce back from failure, and keep trying. At Wandsworth Prep, we pride ourselves on being a Growth Mindset school and we actively encourage challenge, resilience and effort in all of our pupils.
The idea of challenge has been highlighted amongst our Reception children this half term, as the children begin their first swimming lessons. The class have been learning about how to be safe in the water and are looking forward to their next challenge of learning different strokes.
The children are enjoying their swimming lessons so far and we are very proud of all our Reception children for taking on this new challenge.
Watch a short video below of some children telling us about their swimming lessons so far.
