2020-2021: Online Learning in PE
The physical education curriculum requires students to acquire skills through a range of developmentally appropriate movement activities within a variety of different environments. Physical Education teachers have planned tasks to best support physical activity within online learning environments. These activities may involve students participating in both indoor or outdoor environments. The physical activities will not require additional equipment, and will allow for flexibility in how and when students will engage in different tasks presented.
The expectations of activities will be communicated to the student and parent/guardian, and will be posted in the electronic platform used between the student and teacher. This will help ensure that students and their parent/guardian will have an opportunity to review the activity and share any concerns.
Please note that these activities will not be supervised by a CBE teacher. It is a parent decision as to whether the student can do such activities on their own or if they need to be supervised. There will be flexibility in regards to the expectations of the activity to allow for families to make decisions around the logistics of their completion.
We want to inform you about some potential hazards involved with any activity which takes place outside of the home. Please note this list may not include all of the hazards for a given activity:
- Risks inherent to the activity;
- Slips, trips and falls;
- Street crossings;
- Pre-existing medical conditions and/or allergies;
- Exposure to infectious diseases (eg. COVID-19 virus, influenza).
If you have any questions regarding this activity, please contact your child’s teacher.
