Another full week of throwing and catching in Phys. Ed. classes. Students had the opportunity to create their own stations for our Angry Birds game, they played some dodgeball and also had the chance to work at some different throwing stations. In the coming weeks we will be moving away from throwing and catching and transitioning into rolling activities.
We also had our annual Dance-A-Thon on Tuesday. Students had the opportunity to dance for an hour in the afternoon. Some of the crowd favourites were The Cha Cha Slide and The Hamster Dance. Way to go dancers!
Our intramural season is also winding down this week and next. Soccer intramurals have been a huge hit. The grade 4 and grade 5 winners have already had the opportunity to face off against the teachers. In the coming weeks the grade 3 students will finish off their round robin and will also face off against the teachers. Our winter intramural activity is going to be Bopper Hockey. Intramurals are open to students in grades 3-5. Hope to see you there!
This past week in Phys. Ed. we spent some time breaking down some throwing and catching skills. We played some dodgeball games, some throwing and catching games as well as some target games. The highlight was definitely Angry Birds. In Angry Birds students had to use they body to “slingshot” their birds and hit the targets at their station.
We will continue to work on throwing/catching in the next few weeks. Next week also marks our annual Dance-A-Thon fundraiser. Students will be dancing the afternoon away on Nov. 24th starting at 1:15pm. Hope to see you there.
November 20th we will be celebrating National Jersey Day at ÉRB. Students are encouraged to wear their favourite Jersey or other sports attire. It is also picture retake day on November 20th so students may want to bring their Jersey to school to wear once pictures are done.
National Jersey day is being done at all schools in the St. James – Assiniboina School Division as part of Sports Day in Canada (Nov. 21st). Schools have a chance to win a fully autographed Winnipeg Jets jersey. Hope to see your team’s colours!
It was kind of a short, disjointed week this past week in Phys. Ed. Students started playing some games to work on their throwing and catching abilities. We played some dodgeball games (Jailbreak, Dr. Dodgeball and Dr. Pinguard) We also played some Team Handball lead up activities with the older students. We will continue to work on throwing and catching throughout the month of November.
On Tuesday the boys’ team handball team had their first game. They did a great job and showed some really good growth in their knowledge of the game. The other coach complimented them on the high level of defence they were playing. Great work boys! The girls’ team had their first game on Thursday night and were great representatives for our school. They showed some very strong goalkeeping in the game and put in a great effort! Next games will be on the 18th (Boys) and the 19th (Girls). Best of luck in the rest of the season.
This past week in Phys. Ed. was an assessment week. Students played a variety of games and continued to work on their transport skills. During games and activities students were assessed on their transport skills (running, jumping, hoping, skipping and galloping). Students were also pulled out of the game so that M. Koester and I were able to assess the transport skills in isolation. Students also began some dancing this week. Later in the month we will be holding our “Dancing with R & B” annual fundraiser. In order to prepare the students we have started to work through some dances during PE class. Some of the classes will also act as demonstrators and had their dances filmed. This movie will play during the dance-a-thon to help the group follow along with the dance steps. Next week we will continue with our dancing and will also start spending some time looking a little bit at Team Handball.
