Last week in Phys. Ed. we started working on our net/wall games. Students spent a few classes familiarizing themselves with some of the basic rules and strategies of a variety of net/wall activities. We played 2-square, table ball, handball (not team handball) and spike ball. These are all great lead up activities to racquet sports and also deal with a lot of the same strategies used in volleyball.
The grade 5 basketball participants had one last “kick at the can” at our district #3 friendship tournament on Friday afternoon. Everyone played really well and did a great job representing our school. Well done!
In the next few weeks we will be continuing with net/wall activities and starting to dive more into volleyball. Grade 5 students should keep their ears open for announcements regarding our grade 5 volleyball club that will be starting up shortly.
