Physical Education News

We are looking forward to the return of students to school from Monday 4 May and a return to normal teaching and Physical Education. It has been great to see students engaging with the online PE programme, in finishing our gymnastics unit and then the ball skills and skipping challenges that were a part of this. These are skills that all of the students can always work on at home to improve fitness and hand-eye coordination. We will be commencing our ball games skills when boys return to school. For our Year 3 students this will comprise of soccer skills: passing, trapping, dribbling and shooting. The Year 4 students will be working on their hockey skills as we look at similar skills to the Year 3 boys, but with a hockey stick. Our Year 5 students will also be working on their soccer skills. We are all looking forward to the return of the students to school as we move back to face-to-face teaching and instruction.
