Last week in Phys. Ed. we continued to work on our gymnastics. Classes had the chance to work on rolls (log rolls, banana rolls, forward rolls and backwards rolls), springs, landings, balance and a few supports. Most of our practicing was done playing Mission Impossible. In Mission Impossible students work their way through a variety of obstacles without tripping the alarm/setting off the traps. The highlight for most students was the chance to use a spring board and trapezoid mat to work on their springs and landings.
This week also marks the start of our basketball season. Both the boys’ and girls’ teams had their first practices this week. Games will be starting in a little under a month. Parents of basketball participants should be sure to sign up for the Remind text messaging service to be notified of practices and games, as well as cancellations.
In the upcoming week we will start looking at basketball during scheduled Phys. Ed. time as well as some bouncing-related activities with the younger students.
