Willard PE News
I hope all is well with you and your family.
It’s so great to see the days getting longer. It’s such a bonus to be able to get home after school and be able to get out for a workout on the cross -country skis. The other day I went out with our dog Bridget and we had 3 deer dash across the trail right in front of us. What beautiful animals! Hopefully you have been able to get out and enjoy the little snow that we have had this winter.
Here is what is currently happening in your children’s PE classes:
All Grade levels have had their final week of gymnastics. During that unit students worked on their strength and flexibility through work on tumbling, vaulting, parallel bars, rings, balance beam and rope climbing. As this unit has now come to a close we will be moving onto a two- week unit on fitness moving through our much- anticipated obstacle course. Classes will spend some time talking about the body’s response to exercise, how important it is to stay active, and a little about making good nutritional choices in the foods that they eat. Our grade 3-5 classes students will learn how to reach target heart rates during their workout on the course. Willard’s students always look forward to the obstacle course. It should be a lot of fun and at the same time be a great workout.
Please continue to make sure your child comes to school on PE days with appropriate footwear and clothing for this activity.
