The things that I know and learned about ater safety are:
- If you want to save someone that is drowning, do not touch that person or you can drown as well.
- There are the out-of-water and in-water assist.
- Some kinds of out-of-water assist are:
- With the ball and rope; you hold one end of the rope and you throw the ball to the person who’s drowning and pull the person over to the side and help them up.
- Throwing anything that can help the person not to drown.
- If the person who’s drowning is near the edge, just help them up but make sure they don’t pull you down to the pool as well.
- Types of in-the-water assist:
- bring a kick board or anything that can be used to pull the person to the side. Swim with the “object” to the person that you’re saving and let them have the “object” then pull the other side of the “object” and bring them to the side of the pool/ocean. Make sure you do not touch the person that is drowning.
I think I’m good in doing the breast stroke because I experience more with it and it’s the first stroke that I learned. The stroke that I’m least good at is probably the butterfly because I wasn’t swimming when we learned it in class. I can do the dolphin kick but I don’t know who to do the hand and breathing.
To improve my strokes in this unit, I listened to the teachers advice and try to do my best to do the strokes properly. I think I’m at level 3 or 4 since I think I can swim and dive and aware of all the safety stuff, but I also need to improve.
I enjoyed swimming unit, I think swimming is fun because you don’t get to sweat a lot and the thing that I did not enjoy is probably the shower part because if we have another subject right after PE, we have to rush in the shower.
