October 2016

In October the students are going to try and use the warm weather as much as possible.

In the Kindergarten, grade 1, and grade 2/3 class the students will be participating in a number of throwing and catching activities.  The students will be throwing and catching with themselves, with scoops, with partners, and with balls of varying sizes.  They also will be participating in volleyball type activities that are modified to fit their skill levels.  The students are participating in fitness (cardiovascular endurance) days once a week in either low organized game activities or relay races.

The grade 4/5, 5/6, and 7/8 class will begin October by learning the skills and some rules for the sport of football.  The students will be learning how to throw and catch to stationary and moving targets.  The students will be participating in football type activities indoors and outdoors.  The second half of the month the students will begin the volleyball unit.  They will be learning how to set, forearm pass, spike, and serve a ball. The students participate in fitness days every two weeks to improve overall fitness levels.

Running club is underway and the students are getting some miles in.  Running club is on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Running club will go until the last Thursday in October.
