Our students receive physical education every other school day for 45 minutes. (Kindergarten receives PE every fourth school day for 30 minutes). Students do not change for class, but sneakers are required for participation.
At the K-2 level, students receive instruction in basic locomotor movements (run, walk, skip, gallop, sliding, hop, jump), beginning jump rope, rhythms, ball skills (throwing, catching, kicking), gymnastics, and fitness. A variety of equipment is used to aid in instruction, including parachutes, scooters, balls, scarves, bean bags, and ropes. At the 3—4 level, there is great emphasis placed on the overhand throwing motion and the various sport skills that incorporate this skill. Students also engage in lessons on catching, striking, kicking, manipulating objects, rhythms, gymnastics, fitness, cooperative activities, and on playing low organized games and developing strategies to be successful.
