Pool Rule Song
(sung to the tune of “Click goes the shears”)
- Mark Bainbridge
- Pool Rule Song
Down by the Pool,
The Pool Attendant stands,
Pointing to the Pool rules, With his thin wet hand,
The pool rules are for a reason,
The reason you see, Safety in the water is the only way to be, …
Learn all your pool rules;
No running, no fighting, no pushing for me.
When you’re by the swimming pool
Safety is the key,
So learn all your safety rules and sing along with me.
Water; Swimming Program; Safety and specifically – Safety around pools!
This was a simple song designed as a sing-a-long song to be sung on the way to the pool for swimming lessons. The tune is well known – “Click Go the Shears” – and this was used so that the song could be learnt quickly. It generally takes three bus trips for children to master the song – four trips for the bus driver!!
There are a number of activities covering a range of areas on this theme including swimming program, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies housed in the MEMBERS CONTENT area of this web page.
As an example: Swimming Program:
Used as an introduction to children to understand the rules pertaining to the safe operation of the pool. Use it a week before program begins so that it can be used on the trip to the pool as a constant reinforcement.
Hand actions for the song are available in the Members Content as well – designed to be able to perform while sitting bouncing in a bus to the pool.
