As we transition into November, we are transitioning in Phys. Ed. classes too. Last week we started making the move from the transportation skills (running, skipping, galloping, hopping) to manipulation skills (throwing, catching). Students in grades K-2 participated in a variety of activities to work on their throwing and catching. Some of the highlights include Angry Birds and Mission Impossible Dodgeball.
Our grade 3-5 students have started their own unit. The end goal of the unit is to better understand the game of Team Handball. Students started with some lead up games including: Omnikin Football, and Endzone Ball. In the coming week they will be playing Mini Team Handball and finishing up by playing an actual game. We will also throw in a game or two of Quidditch, the highly popular game from the Harry Potter series.
In intramural news, our École Robert Browning Premier League soccer has finished up the round robin portion of the season. The top teams in grades 3, 4 and 5 will play versus the teachers in the coming two weeks. Thanks to all those students that came out to play!
