Its been an amazing month for our students in physical education class. Students in all grade levels have participated in a variety of cooperative games, aerobic activities and competitive sports.
In grades K and 1, students have participated in warm-up activities such as fire and ice, island tag and bump tag. In each round of the warm-up game, students practice a different locomotor skill such as skipping, side shuffling, galloping and running. We focus on changing directions and speeds with these movements. We’ve also used the parachute for cooperative activities and field day practice.
In grades 2 and 3, students have participated in warm-up games such as pac man, never ending tag and Doctor Doctor. In addition, students have run laps for their mighty milers incentive program. For the main activities, students have played modified soccer games and number soccer. We’ve also introduced a new game called Pillow Polo (floor hockey) to the students.
In grades 4 and 5, students have finished playing speed ball in their sports league teams. speedball is a hybrid sport that combines skills from soccer, team handball, basketball and football. Here are some pictures of some of the sports league teams!
Field Day was a smashing success this year! We had an amazing day that both structured and unstructured play. Here are some images from Field Day!
Finally, congratulations to all the students that participated in the morning runnings and track team. We had over 85 students participate in the Developmental Track and Field Series.
Thank you to the families and school staff for making this a really special year in physical education and school wellness!!! I hope everyone has a wonderful summer!
