Welcome to the new school year Washington parents. Our year in Physical Education will begin with as many days as possible using our oudoor field and blacktop area to take advantage of the good weather. Your children will begin the year participating in ball skill activities such as football and soccer. All days will include some form of aerobic exercise in addition to a warm-up activity (2-3 minutes) and a movement related activity.
When the weather starts to cool down in October, the students will begin a jump rope skills unit that will lead us into November. Most of the rope skill days will take place in the gym while still trying to take advantage of occassional nice weather days on the blacktop outside.
The primary aged students (K-2) will also participate in basic movement activities while emphasizing spatial awareness, personal space and locomotor skills.
Our school "Knights-on-the-Run" fundraiser also takes place in the Fall during the school day at regularly scheduled P.E. times. As usual, students will participate in daily aerobic activity that will prepare the them for the fundraiser and our Fall term "mile run".
We will wrap up the first trimester by completing our jump rope unit and introducing a new unit in Tumbling skills. Get outside and enjoy the weather while it's nice. KEEP MOVING!
