KS2 PE Quiz
A safe place to dive is from the diving board.


Swimming is the movement through water using the arms and legs. Swimming is not only fun but is a very important skill and could save yours or someone else's life one day. There are many types of swimming styles such as backstroke, front crawl and even the butterfly stroke.

If you really enjoy swimming, you might want to swim the English Channel when you are older. The first person to successfully swim the Channel was Captain Matthew Webb in 1875, despite being stung by jellyfish. It took him over 21 hours. The fastest crossing took place in 2012 by an Australian, Trent Grimsey, who took only 6 hours and 55 minutes. Perhaps in a few years, your name will be added to the records!

This quiz tests your knowledge of swimming and keeping safe around water.
