Welcome to Physical Education!
What are we doing in class? The skills the students have been practicing are throwing, tossing and catching. Grades K-2 worked with bean bags and grades 3 & 4 worked with scoops. They all played games that focused on proper throwing and tossing technique as well as target accuracy.
The students have started a new fitness routine with a concentration on locomotive movements, muscle strengthening, agility, and hand eye coordination.
Currently we are in our “net games” unit. We’ve strung a volleyball net across the Grange and have been working with balloons and beachballs. The skills focus has been striking, object control and accuracy. We will soon move on to throwing and catching games with the net.
All games/activities we play throughout our classes have a skill focus, fitness aspect, and opportunities to practice proper sportsmanship, cooperation, turn taking, listening and direction following.
