A good week of team building activities in PE classes. We worked our way through a variety of activities last week. “Pathways” a game that M. Koester found online was a class favourite. This game have students trying to uncover the secret pathway to get across the maze. Each mistake resulted with the students running a lap to earn another turn at the secret path. We also worked on some basic hand-to-hand circus instruction (aka pyramid building and group balancing). Students really needed to communicate and work as a group to have success in those balance positions. Some of our younger students also played some games to work on their fundamental movement skills. We played Rodeo, Semis and Race Cars as well as a few others. These games got students running, skipping, galloping, hopping and moving safely around the gym.
We participated in our first cross country race on Thursday last week. All of our runners looked strong and put in good efforts. Well done everyone! Our next race is on Thursday at 4:05pm and will be held at ÉRB.
Next week we will continue to work on fundamental movement skills. We are focusing on the transport skills for the remainder of September and October. We will be playing a variety of games and activities to teach, learn and practice ways to transport the body in space. Keep following along with us over the coming weeks.
