Have a look at the link to the Official Olympic Website. There is a great animation, introducing you to the idea and ethos behind the games. Very excited about August 2016!!!
Our new Bouldering Wall
We are so excited to have the Bouldering wall as part of our PE facilities.
Please watch the video and if you have any questions please post them on the blog.
We have to think differently about the way we move around school now. As we wait for the new MPH to be finished, we would like everyone to access the swimming pool from it’s main gate.
Watch the video and ask any questions you may have.
Thank you, the PE Team
In grade two students have been exploring the idea of creating different movements that can be put together. Students have been gaining an understanding of how movements can be linked to make a sequence. This has been a cooperative effort with a partner and also one that requires lot’s of talking, reflection and doing before a finished product is ready to be shown to others. There has been a lot of discussion and demonstration about what makes a movement a linking movement. Once with their partner then begins the real test to see if the plan and the moves chosen fit together. We have all levels of learners in class and it is common to see a partnership of two students with varying abilities.
Grade Three classes took off on their new unit of Health and Fitness by brainstorming about these questions:
* Describe ways to improve or become physically fit
* What types of fitness are there?
* How does nutrition link to your health?
* What does being physically fit mean to you?
Groups explored, discussed and arrived with many different responses, can you match those responses to the questions above? Give it a try!
