Lots of striking last week in Phys. Ed. Students had the opportunity to try out hockey sticks, ringette sticks and bopper hockey sticks (polo sticks) in a variety of striking activities. We did some bowling, pin guard, and relay races with the different striking implements. We also worked on stick handling and shooting on goalies and at targets (moving and stationary).
By far the most popular game was Bee Line. A game in which two teams work at hitting a moving target (a person) walking back and forth across the game area. Hitting the target causes it to change direction. The object of the game is to have the moving target cross the goal line on your end of the gym.
We will continue with striking next week. We also have a very special visit from a group of PE teachers from Sweden as well as from Dr. Dean Kreillaars, the professor running our Circus PE study. Should be fun to show off some of our circus skills!
