Happy New Year to everyone and welcome back!!!

The students will begin the New Year with some low organized activities that include teamwork, cooperation, and lots of movement.  Then they will participate and learn the skills used in the sports of floor hockey, ringette, and sledge hockey.

December

In November the grade 3/4, 5/6, and 7/8 students participated in volleyball and low organized games. In the volleyball unit the students learned the proper form of forearm passing, setting, underhand and over head serving, and spiking.  Some of the low organized games the students played include Asteroid Blaster, 4 Corners, Pin Guard, and Ultimate 4 Square.

The Kindergarten, Grade 1, and Grade 2/3 classes also participated in volleyball which was modified to suit the needs of the students.  The students used balloons instead of volleyballs to give them more time to get under the balloon and pass it.  Some of the low organized games the students played include Zookeeper and Chicken Run.

This month the Grade 3/4, 5/6, and 7/8 classes are participating in a 30 day workout challenge.  Each student picked an exercise to perform each physical education class and the time interval or repetition increases with every day.

The unit of focus in December is basketball.  The students will learn the proper form for dribbling, passing to stationary and moving targets, and shooting the basketball.
