We’ve Got the Moves in P.E.!

The children have got rhythm and movement at MBTS!

We have recently finished our Movement Unit, wherein children learned gymnastic tumbling, jumps, turns and leaps, individual balances, and basic partner acrobatic balances. They have been given the opportunity to express themselves through dance and movement, demonstrating an understanding of levels, tempo, and pathways while doing so. They also had the chance to use ribbons and hoops, and they manipulated these while incorporating the other aspects of class. Older children worked on putting a mini-routine with a partner to demonstrate all of the skills learned in the unit.

We have now moved on to our next unit for the school year: Target. Children in Grades One to Seven are exploring the following Target games: Bocce, Ladder Golf, Corn Hole, Beanbag Toss, Ring Toss, Croquet, Archery, and Golf Putting. While learning the rules to the games, our emphasis has been on the importance of practising self-correction, choosing partners and keeping score. Archery has emerged as the clear favourite in this unit of study!

Younger children in Casa are working on their manipulative skills, balances , movement concepts and non-locomotor skills. Our Toddlers have done so well too: We have started each class with a circle, during which they learn body parts, stretches and balances through fun songs and games. We have also started on mini obstacle courses, where they learn to follow instructions and work with each other.

It has been a great month filled with lots of movement, rhythm and fun!
