Last week in Phys. Ed. we started to make the transition from our basic, introductory games to some more skill specific games. We’ve started to work on our transport skills (running, jumping, hopping, skipping and galloping) in a variety of activities. We’ve also spent some time at the beginning of our PE classes to work a little bit on our juggling skills. M. Koester is going to be starting up a Juggling Club on Day 1. All students in grades 3-5 that are interested are welcome to come out and try to master the art of juggling.
This past week we also had our divisional cross-country race. Congratulations to all of our participants, you ran hard and were great representatives for our school! A special congratulations to Adam H. for finishing 1st overall in the grade 4 boys’ category. Way to go Adam!
In the coming weeks we will be spending some time working on our personal fitness as well as playing some Halloween-themed games. The week prior to Halloween students will have a chance to pass through our Haunted Basement.
One final note for the week. Our “Toonies for Terry” campaign as part of our Terry Fox Run has raised $448.90. Thanks to everyone for their support!
