As your confidence increases you will find that your imagination also will and you will have a few favourites that work best for you. Apart from one or two explanatory notes, I’ve made no attempt to explain where it is best to use these songs, that’s your job as a swimming teacher. Suffice to say that these are to be used with the games you play to make the water environment fun and enjoyable for the children. This is by far the best way to overcome the children’s fear. Whilst the hope is that they will fall over you must always be ready and observant so that if they do you can pick them up and praise them.
