Last Week In Phys. Ed. (Mar. 5th-9th)

Volleyball and Speed Stacking.  That’s been our focus for the last week.  Students have been working on playing Circulation Volleyball (a 4 vs. 4 version of volleyball where players are allowed to catch and self-volley all 3 contacts).  We’ve seen some really great progress in volleyball skills and strategies.  Especially from one group of grade 2s (room 8 & 9). Way to go everyone!  Our grade 5s will have a volleyball club starting up in April.  We will be practicing during lunch hours and will have the opportunity to compete in the divisional volleyball tournament at Westwood Collegiate in early May.

Speed stacking has taken over our gym, hallways, classrooms over the past week.  Students have been working hard to get in a good time on the 3-6-3 Stack and the Cycle Stack.  We have been running time trails during class, recess and lunch hour.  We will be taking the top 6 boys and top 6 girls to the divisional speed stacking tournament held in April.  Right now we’ve got a few times in the 4 second range for the 3-6-3 and a few in the low teens for the cycle stack.  Keep up the good work everyone!  Cannot wait to see how we do at the tournament.
