Athletics

Physical Education Learning Intentions September 2021 – January 2022
  • Run. Jump. Throw. (fundamental movement patterns)
  • Target Games
  • Territory Games
  • Fitness Challenges
The guiding questions we are exploring and trying to answer through Movement Education:
  • What fundamental movement is applied in all activities?
  • What personal goals can you achieve when given a set time?
  • How can you maintain your personal space to work cooperatively and positively with your peers?
Cooperation 
  • Working together to achieve a common goal, using positive language towards peers and self, creating a safe, welcoming and fun learning environment for all students
  • Including the safety measures of spatial awareness, equipment uses (sanitizing and cohorting) 
  • Making personal space and encouraging self and peers when faced with a new challenge
Run. Jump. Throw
  • Fundamental movement patterns (locomotor movements, spatial awareness, directional, speeds, agility and control)
  • Moving through obstacles
  • Jumping over obstacles
  • Using the proper (point. step. turn. throw technique)
  • Underhand, overhead, catching, ready position
  • Jumping rope, creating personal challenges using the proper skipping technique (with/without a jump rope) 
Target Games 
  • Focusing on developing our basic fundamental skills including balance, coordination, locomotor movements, strength, cardiovascular and flexibility. Students worked independently and in small groups to achieve a goal.
Invasion Games 

  • Moving safely into a new area without being tagged
  • Offensive and defensive game strategy
  • Spatial awareness
  • Planning ahead with peers to achieve a goal
  • Counting objects collected and using mathematical understanding to see which team has the most

Physical Education Learning Intentions September 2021 – January 2022
  • Cooperation and goal setting (fair play, team work, resiliency, perseverance)
  • Functional Fitness (balance, locomotor movement, strength, flexibility and cardiovascular endurance)
  • Fundamental movement sequences – jumping jacks, squats, push-ups, lunges, high knees, sit ups and planks (Tabata challenges)
  • Individual pursuits (run. jump. throw.)
  • Invasion games (territory, invade, defend, collect, dodge, flee and spatial awareness)
  • Locomotor movements (leap, hop, skip, jump)
  • Spatial awareness (being aware of our surroundings, dodging, fleeing)
  • Target games (accuracy, underhand and overhead throw, point. step. turn. throw.)
  • Territory Games – how to safely invade another team’s territory, dodge, flee, spatial awareness, develop offensive and defensive strategy. 

All K-6 skills and activities are taught and assessed according to grade level expectations
