Learning to Swim
by Sophie Webber
Last month, I did something amazing, which I'd almost begun to think wasn't possible. I actually swam one length of the swimming pool. I know it doesn't seem like
achievement, because swimming is something that everyone seems to learn really easily. But there was just
way I could manage it. And it wasn't as I hadn't tried. Apart
all the lessons I had at school, I also went swimming with Dad
week. But in
of all the practice I was getting, I still wasn't able to swim.
Then one day, when I thought Dad was holding me up in the water as usual, I suddenly realised - he wasn't! I was swimming on
own, without help! After that, I swam several lengths of the pool.
So if you're having trouble learning something, don't give up. It will definitely happen one day!
