# Four little ducks went swimming one day
# Over the hills and far away... #
This is Daniella, and she is four years old.
# Quack, quack, quack
# And only three little ducks came back. #
Daniella likes to play in the garden with her family.
Today, Daniella will do something new for the first time.
But what will it be?
This is Daniella's memory box.
It helps her remember the exciting things that have happened.
See if you can remember what goes in today.
Daniella, you see this duck, how it's floating and swimming around?
-Would you like to learn how to swim?
Swimming? That sounds like fun!
Swimming is when we learn to move through the water using our bodies.
Many people learn in a swimming pool.
It's important that you learn safely and have a grown-up with you.
There are different types of swimming strokes.
People often swim as a sport, or just for fun.
Daniella is getting ready for her first swimming lesson.
I wonder what she'll need.
Got a big towel here for you. What do we use that for?
-Why do I have to wrap you round?
-So I can keep warm.
-Yeah, and to dry you. What are you going to wear?
Oh, that's pretty, Daniella!
And what do we use this for?
-It's to go under water.
Wearing goggles can help you see under the water.
Wow, Daniella, they look good!
-Do I look a bit yellow?
-And you look a bit blue!
Shall we put things in a bag and then we go? Yeah?
Time to pack everything in the bag for your lesson.
Will you help me put it in? Can you zip up?
Good job. OK, let's go.
All packed, and off to the pool.
The first thing to go into
Daniella's memory box
are her goggles.
Daniella has come to the pool for her first lesson.
I'm looking forward to swimming!
Once everyone's changed into their costumes,
it's time to meet the teacher.
Good morning! Let's have a shower before we go into the pool.
If you walk through here, I'll pop the shower on.
It's a magic shower. There you go!
Oh, it's nice and warm!
Right, good morning, everybody.
My name's Matt. Welcome to your swimming lesson.
Before we start, Theresa's going to help you put your swimming fin
on your back, so you can be a dolphin or you can be a scary shark.
Daniella, are you going to be a friendly dolphin or a scary shark?
-A friendly dolphin, fantastic.
Right then, everybody, so we're going to test the water.
You're going to come into the water and show us what you can do.
Right, Daniella, ready? In you go.
Fantastic! So you've got to use those legs, Daniella.
See if you can splash your toes.
Fantastic! Big splashy toes, Daniella!
You're doing really well, Daniella! Time for a game.
Right then, everybody.
So, if you see a red hoop, you are going to try
and blow some bubbles, just like Theresa is doing.
If you see Theresa pick up a yellow hoop,
you've got to do a big spin around.
And if you see Theresa show you the green hoop,
you've got to race back over to this wall using your splashy toes.
So, are we watching? Let's see what colour Theresa picks up first.
Oh, it's red! And what do we have to do?
Big bubbles, Daniella!
Well done with your bubbles. That was fantastic!
So, we learn how to do bubbles in the swimming pool to help us breathe
when we are in the water.
What colour is next?
Oh, it's green! Off you go! See if you can paddle your way over.
Lots of splashes with your toes!
Well done! Don't get my hair wet!
Keep going, Daniella!
Swimming looks like lots of fun!
The second thing into the memory box
is the swimming lesson.
Daniella has come to an aquarium to see how other animals swim.
What can you spot, Daniella?
Look at a shark!
They swim like the fishes.
-Yeah! Do they do that?
No. What do they do?
They sit straight and wag the tail,
like a fish.
Fish breathe under water using their gills.
How does it swim?
You show me.
-Is it like that?
-They swim like that.
-They use their tail, isn't it?
-Wow, look at that fish!
There are lots of fish at the aquarium!
I wonder how many more we will see.
I can see three!
Just three? I can see more than three.
I can see 100!
100? That's a lot of fish!
What else can you see?
-Can you see stingray?
Stingrays are excellent swimmers.
I can see a shark!
A shark? Where?!
Over there! A shark.
-I hope it doesn't bite us!
-There's another one right on top.
Don't worry, Daniella, you're safe in the tunnel.
The third thing into the memory box
is the aquarium.
Daniella has come to the pool to practise her swimming
and have some fun.
Let's practise your swimming.
Can you kick?
Are you going to flap your arms?
Can you do it even faster?
-Make the splashing.
-Well done! Keep going, keep going!
Kick those legs! Keep going, keep going, keep going!
Good kicking, Daniella!
Remember to use your arms and legs,
and don't forget to practise breathing as you swim.
Let's practise blowing bubbles!
Excellent. Wow, that's really good!
You're getting good at blowing bubbles, Daniella.
SHE BLOWS BUBBLES
Good work. It's time to have some fun.
-Do you want to go on the slide?
That's a big slide. I wonder how fast it is.
Ha-ha, let's go again!
Let's slide down!
One, two, three, let's go!
That slide looks like so much fun!
But look up there - there are even bigger slides!
Which one are you going to go on?
The yellow one.
The yellow one? That's brave, Daniella!
This one does look fast, but you have to wait for the lights
to turn green before you can go.
-Daniella, are you ready?
-Three, two, one, go!
-Off we go!
Here comes the tunnel!
Wow, this slide is really fast!
It takes time to learn to swim. The more practice you have,
the more confident you'll be in the water.
Always have a grown-up with you when you practise.
It's time for Daniella's second swimming lesson.
Right, everybody, welcome back.
We want to see what you've been practising last week.
Are you ready to show us those fast toes and those big bubbles?
Well done, everybody. Very good.
So, we're going to do a little swim through the tunnel,
and you're going to show me how you've been practising
your big bubbles and your splashy toes.
Off you go, Raffy. Fall forward into the water for me.
Good boy. Big splashy toes, Raffy!
Well done, loads of big bubbles!
Keep going, Raffy.
Well done, good boy. Very good.
Ready? And off you go, Imogen.
Big bubbles. Fantastic.
Big high-five. That was great.
Your turn, Daniella!
Remember those splashy toes and big bubbles!
Daniella, can I hear those really big bubbles, please?
SHE BLOWS BUBBLES
Fantastic, Daniella! Well done. Can you try your big arms as well?
Can you use your arms to help you?
Where are those splashy toes, Daniella?
Can you show us those big splashy toes?
Wow, very good. Well done, Daniella. Good girl.
You're getting the hang of swimming now, Daniella.
Right, everybody, you have done so well with all your practising.
Well done. Keep up the good work. Daniella, this is for you.
A little certificate. Well done.
You can get changed now. Well done.
Imogen, well done. See you next week.
Everyone in your class has done so well in their swimming lessons.
The fourth thing into the memory box
is the swimming certificate.
Today, Daniella learnt how to swim.
Do you remember what happened?
Let's have a look in the memory box.
First, Daniella packed everything
she needed for swimming
and tried out her new goggles.
Next, Daniella went to the pool
where she had her first swimming lesson.
Then, Daniella visited an aquarium
where she saw lots of different swimming animals.
Finally, after lots of practice,
Daniella received a certificate for doing well with her swimming.
Today, Daniella learnt how to swim.
There's a first time for everything!
Join Daniella as she learns to swim. Daniella plays with her toys in her paddling pool when Mum asks her if she'd like to learn to swim. She has her first swimming lesson, then visits an aquarium to learn how fish swim and breathe in the water. Daniella then goes to a swimming pool with her family to practice what she has learnt and to help her improve. She even receives a certificate for her hard work at swimming.
