Physical Education is a time for students to learn to enjoy being physically active. Through game-based, cooperative games, students enjoy getting exercise and getting their bodies moving. Skill development is taught just-in-time and on an individual level. Learning fair play and social interactions is also a key component of the PE curriculum. The daily nature walk also involves physical fitness through walking and complements the PE curriculum.
When looking at students, there is a wide range of physical abilities and physical fitness. We therefore knew we had to approach PE in the same way we approach Math and Language Arts, have it be fun, engaging and with a purpose, so that each individual child is challenged to his or her individual needs. We are now working on getting contracts in place for the locations.
Construction continues and inspections passed to start closing in the walls. Yay!
