Another two for one special! The last two weeks in PE we’ve been focusing on net/wall games. We’ve also had the chance to get outdoors and do some cross-country skiing. Students in all grade levels spent time working on net/wall skills through games such as table ball, tennis, pickle ball, racquet ball, two square and a variety of other racquet based games. Students in grade 4 and 5 had a few opportunities to get outdoors and use our freshly groomed ski trails. We have the cross-country ski equipment from now until the end of ski season, so the hope is to get out there many more times before the snow melts completely. Our next unit is going to focus on striking/fielding type games. That should take us a few weeks to wrap up.
Grade 5 basketball season is also finishing up. The friendship tournament is March 1st. Both teams will have the opportunity to play one more day, plus a game against the teachers in the last week of school prior to spring break. Great job by all players involved this season!
