Physical Education supports you in acquiring skills through a variety of developmentally appropriate movement activities. You will gain experience within various physical activities assisting you in further understanding health and wellness benefits, promoting positive interactions and leading an active lifestyle.
Woodman Physical Education Program
Students will acquire a physically active lifestyle regardless of ability or skill level through participation in various activities within a positive and inclusive learning environment.
Physical Education will be assessed based on the CBE approved report card learning outcomes for Physical Education and the Alberta Learning Physical Education Program of Studies.

“A” Activity: This mark will reflect how students acquire and apply a wide variety of skills across the components of the curriculum (dance, games, gymnastics, individual and team activities and alternative environment activities).

“C” Cooperation: This mark will reflect how students interact and communicate with others, their sense of fair play, their attitude and their role in leadership.

“B” Benefits of Health: This mark will reflect the student's acquisition of knowledge related to self-sufficient participation in physical activity and their actions demonstrating personal responsibility for their health in and outside of school.
“D” Do it Daily: This mark will reflect how students assume the responsibility to lead an active lifestyle through their participation, effort, adherence to class expectations and routines.
Participation in Physical Education
Participation in Phys. Ed. is not optional; a major medical concern requires a note from a parent or guardian explaining the nature of the injury, and, when the student can resume participation. When a long recovery period is required, an alternate assignment may be assigned for evaluation purposes. Activity will be modified for minor illness or injury but participation is still expected.
For your Child's Safety
It is imperative that students with asthma, allergies, diabetes or other health concerns, make themselves known to their teacher. This helps both the student and the teacher to preserve a safe environment in the class and ensures a successful year. Thank you for your understanding.
You may purchase school shorts and shirts from the Phys. Ed. Team; or wear your own athletic attire (ensure non-Woodman athletic attire is a red or grey shirt and black bottoms): School gym shirt is required for the Cross Country, Wrestling, Badminton and Track and Field Teams. Please ensure gym clothing is washed at least once a week.
Physical Education will include outdoor units year round. Physical Activity in our Canadian climate can be very beneficial and enjoyable as long as you are prepared for the weather conditions. Please ensure you have a change of clothes appropriate for the weather. It is recommended to wear layers in cool and cold weather conditions.
For both student safety and the gym flooring athletic shoes with non-marking soles and a good grip are required for PE. Shoes must be fully laced up; sandals, street shoes, boots or heels are inappropriate footwear. Inappropriate footwear will be treated as not changed.
