Health Wrap-Up

We spent the last few weeks working on health. The students learned a lot about food and nutrition, exercise, sleep, hygiene, social health, mental health, emotional health, bullying and other topics. The grades experienced different aspects of health and shared their knowledge. It has been a productive week and all the classes have completed their summative tasks for health. Some pictures of the students completing fitness and their summative task are below.

This Week in Phys. Ed.

We have been working hard on our health lessons and competing with the crazy weather. We are approaching the end of the units in each grade and the students will be completing their summative tasks soon. Some classes will be making posters, pamphlets and even videos of ways to maintain our overall health. We will also be having jump rope for heart next Thursday. Make sure to bring in all of your fundraising forms so we can tally all of our earnings.

Have a great weekend!

Working on our Fitness!

The students have been busy the last few weeks as we have started our health units. Check out what each grade has been up to below!

Grade 4: The grade 4's have been displaying their health knowledge with lessons on physical and mental health. We have done some work about nutrition and exercise and talked about the right amount of sleep. The students have been able to pick exercises that they can do and practice them in class. We have also been using skipping as a form of exercise to help us prepare for Jump Rope for Heart, which is coming up on Thursday, Feb.14!

Grade 5: The grade 5's have been learning about making healthy choices for their life, including meal planning, exercise and hygiene. They have made their own fitness bingo cards and have been able to demonstrate many different exercises for their different muscle groups. We have also been practicing our skipping and helping the SK's and grade 1's learn how to properly jump rope!

Grade 6: We have been learning about overall health including our physical, mental, emotional and social health. The students have done work on their self concept and how we can better our belief of ourselves. We have also been working on how we would like others to treat us in a hope that that will spur on a more positive attitude towards others!

Grade 7: The grade 7's have just about finished their summative tasks for this unit, presenting their games that they created. As we finish our summative tasks we will be starting our next round of fitness testing. Hopefully the students have been keeping fit and working on their fitness goals so they can see improvement from their initial testing!
