Last Week In Phys. Ed. (Jan. 16th-20th)

This past week we kicked off a basketball-themed unit.  We worked a bit on bouncing, dribbling and shooting technique.  We did so by playing a variety of games that we’ve played before, but added in that the fact that you needed to dribble a basketball with you during the game.

Some of our older students started working through some basic territory/invasion game progressions to learn and discuss the offensive and defensive strategies involved in basketball (as well as in other territory/invasion games).

Last week also marked the start of our basketball season for our grade 5 teams.  These teams will continue to practice throughout January and February with the opportunity to play in 3 league games and a friendship tournament.  Best of luck to all our participants.

On a non-basketball note…Save the date!  May 29th will be the date of our 3rd annual High 5 Community 5km Run.  Hope to see you there.  Visit highfiverun.wordpress.com for more info.
