Please find time to do 20-30mins of vigorous PLAY per day. This could be anything that increases your heart rate, makes you sweat, or breathe heavy. Go out and enjoy yourself, throw, catch, run, skip, chase, swim, climb, play, play, play.
Everyone seemed rested and energised after our Christmas break.
This week in PE we took some time to re-visit our PE essential agreements:
Try your best
In preparation for grade 5-6 sports day, classes have been prepping for some of the events. Always keeping in mind that a successful Sports Day will be accomplished when we keep our essential agreements in mind.
Next week Grade 1 will begin their Dance unit with Ms. Saunders.
Grade 6 will not have PE next week as they will be working with the Young Americans.
During the first week, we mostly worked on getting our class signals worked out and agreeing on our PE essential agreements. For all of our PE classes, our essential agreements are: Be Nice, Be Safe, Try your Best.
Here are some photos from the first 2 weeks of school:
