Mr. Colin Munro - Physical Education

P, 1, 2 - Students have continued working on low level organized games and relays. Students have also been concentrating on throwing and receiving skills using different size balls, scoops, and beanbags and thinking about keeping eyes on target, body lined up to target, follow through, and moving to meet the ball. Students will continue to work on cooperative games, teamwork, and leadership skills.

3,4,5,6- Students are spending the month of December wrapping up throwing and receiving skills and will be playing organized games that include different movement patterns, changing speed and directions, including levels. Students will use cues independently and from others to improve and refine motor skills and movement patterns. They will also demonstrate that persistance and discipline are required to refine existing skills.

Jayme, Alden, Jake, Ethan, and Lucas participated in the MK Hockey Tournament at the Pictou County Wellness Center on November 15. 

Grade P, 1, 2- Students in these grades will be working on different types of physical activities. They will change speed and direction, work on increased balance activities, using partners and small groups to do teamwork activities, problem solve when moving through and around obstacles, choose different strategies to increase chances of success in physical activities (be in ready position, move closer to a target, use arms to balance, keep eyes up, and watch where you are going)

Grades 3, 4, 5, 6 - Students will be working towards demonstrating competency in fundamental movement skills and movement concepts within various games. Students will begin to use proper terminology, play by the basic rules and guidelines associated with selected games, both individually and team. Students will apply sending, receiving, and protecting skills while stationary and moving with an object or ball. Students will demonstrate these skills in such sports as Handball and Ultimate frisbee as well as basic catch and throw activities.


Students in Grades P, 1, and 2 have been working on cooperative games and movement skills. They have been practicing sending objects such as beanbags, balls and scarves with an underhand throwing motion. They have also been learning the basic skills of soccer by kicking to a target, through a target, and hitting a target (partner). Students have also practiced receiving objects by catching with their hands and trapping with their feet.

Students in Grades 3, 4, 5, and 6 have been working on cooperative games, safely completing activity specific warm-ups, and reflecting on previous activities that help with the activity they are doing now. Students are now practicing the soccer skills of dribbling, passing, trapping, and kicking.They are applying the correct terminology, basic rules, and guidelines around the sport of soccer.
