A very short week this week, only 3 days. Worked a bit more on target games during PE classes. Played some Super Bowling, Individual Pinguard and a little bit of curling. Both of our team handball teams played their second games of the season. The skill level and understanding of the game has sure increased quickly. Next week is a bye week for both teams. Lastly we’ve been rolling along with our indoor soccer intramurals. The École Robert Browning Premier League (ERBPL) has been a huge hit, especially with the grade 3 students. After the round robin portion of the season (early December), the 1st place team in each grade will face off against the teachers team.
A very full week this past week in Phys. Ed.. We started off the week with a bang. Halloween was a big event at ÉRB. Students had one last crack at the Haunted House during the morning, and we had our annual costume parade in the gym in the afternoon. A fun, high energy day for everyone involved.
We were very fortunate this past week. We had a special guest from École Nationale de Cirque visit us for two mornings. M. Sylvain Rainville from ÉNC is a coach, trainer, teacher at the school and is a specialist in the Hand-to-Hand discipline of circus arts. He worked with our grade 4 and 5 students that are involved in the circus study. We learned a lot of neat things from him. It was really a nice treat to have him in!
We also started up our Target Games unit with regular PE classes. We have the divisional gym curling sets for the next two weeks. We’ve been curling, bowling and playing a few other target games in class. It’s been a nice change of pace from the other activities that we’ve been doing so far this year. We will continue with target games next week, then we will transition to indoor soccer to wrap up the month of November.
