Having learned all about sailing from the experts at the Southampton Sailing Club in the Spring term, Highfield children have finally had the chance to get out on the water themselves! For the next few months, groups of children from Year 5 and 6 will be having sailing taster sessions over at the Southampton Water Sports Centre on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.
This week, eleven Year 5s were the first to get a chance to get their wetsuits on and head onto the Itchen. Everyone had a great afternoon sailing back and forth on the river, They got the chance to steer the boat themselves, and some even volunteered to experience capsizing , with the help of one of the leaders from the centre! After finishing the session by leaping into the water, everyone got dried off and headed back to school. We hope you enjoy our pictures!
