This week was a bit of a transition week in Phys. Ed. Students took part in a variety of fitness related stations/centres while M. Koester and I worked on evaluations of some of the fundamental movement skills. Students showed off their balancing skills (both static and dynamic) as well as their bouncing skills. Those 3 skills along with rolling will be the main component of this term’s “movement” portion of the report card. Students also had the chance to play some large group fitness games including: Fantastic 4, Pursuit and the Human Heart game.
On Wednesday students spent the entire day participating in Festival du Voyageur activities. In the gym groups had the chance to race each other in canoe portaging races. They had to navigate an obstacle course in groups of 3 with a “canoe” on over their heads. Later in the afternoon the entire school came down to the gym for our annual class canoe races. Groups of students pushed their teachers around the gym on “canoes”. It was a blast! Hope that everyone has a great long weekend!
