Last Week In Phys. Ed. (Sept. 17-21)

Things are starting to roll now in Phys. Ed.  We’ve got all of our routines established and all classes have had a handful of PE classes now.  We’ve been working on some cooperative games as well as some team building activities over the course of the week.  Some of the younger groups have been playing some simple locomotor games to get them up and moving safely in the gym.  In the coming weeks we are going to look more into the transport skills as well as some fitness activities.

Next week we will also be starting up Circus Club.  It’s open to grade 4 and 5 students and runs over the lunch hour on Day 6. Hope to see you there!

Last week we had our first Cross Country race.  Students did a great job!  We even had a couple of first place finishers (congrats Knox and Jack)!  This week we will have our second race on Wednesday (weather permitting) at ÉRB starting at 4:05pm. Good luck to all our participants.

Once we roll over into October we will also be starting up intramurals.  Intramurals run on days 3,4 and 5 and are open to students in grades 3,4 and 5.  Students will be notified of which intramural sport will be played, will need to sign up with M. Vermeylen or M. Koester and will be placed on a team.  We will do a round robin style tournament with the top placing team at each grade having a chance to face off against the teachers.  Stay tuned for more info.

Welcome Back!

Welcome back everyone!  Hope that you all had a great summer.  I’m sure everyone is excited to be back…I know M. Koester and I are!  We’ve got lots in the works for the upcoming school year and cannot wait to get going.  Looking forward to catching up with all parents and students over the coming weeks.

To start off in September we will be working on some team building and cooperation games, as well as getting organized with our classroom routines and procedures.  A few housekeeping reminders for everyone.  Please make sure that you bring appropriate footwear to the gym for PE classes.  Skateboarding shoes aren’t great for running in!  Students is grades 4 and 5 need a change of clothes for class.  Something comfortable to wear and be active in is perfect!  A gym bag is also a must! (a plastic bag works too!)

September will also be the start of our grade 4/5 Cross Country season.  Students should be bringing home information regarding practices and meets in the first few days of school.

See you all Friday!
