Week 20 In LES Physical and Health Education
The LES classes have finished another great week in Physical and Health Education. I continue to be impressed with the students’ desire to become healthier, active people.
Below are a few highlights from this week:
PE – The students worked to acquire skills and concepts related to games and sports involving base running. In particular, the LES classes focused on aspects such as tagging a runner out, kicking a ball to an open space, and proper pitching/rolling a ball to the kicker. This unit has been a big hit with the students and the concepts learned will further prepare them for similar sports to come such as T-ball and modified cricket.
Health – Since coming back from the break, the students have begun to learn about the human body. This has included learning about the skeletal system for Primary 1 and Grade 1, as well as the skeletal and muscular system for Grade 2. It has been an exciting unit so far due to the fact that the content has a lot of carry-over to what we learn during the fitness portion of our PE classes.
Below are some images of the students’ learning process throughout the week:
