Week Eight Activities- Sports Week!

Hello UB1, I hope you are excited for Sports week! Wear your favourite sports jerseys to the pool this week to support your teams!
If you have completed the Swim Around The World challenge, come to the guard office this week to pick up your prize bag! Even if you haven’t finished, you can still come to the guard office for a prize for participation. Keep swimming to complete the challenge!

Make-it Monday

This week, draw a flag for your favourite sports team and hang it up in your window to send your support while they play their games! Personally, my favourite team is the Toronto Maple Leafs but now I’m cheering on the Vancouver Canucks, the only Canadian team left in the NHL! Your craft can look something like the picture below, with writing specific to your team.
