Last week students were able to showcase their dancing skills as we teamed up with Sound Kreations to learn new moves from around the world. Dances were inspired through stories and knowledge from places like Africa, the United States, and the Caribbean. Families were invited to come and join us on the 26th as we hosted 3 mini assemblies where students presented their dances and showed great audience appreciation while watching others perform.
This week in PE are starting to transition into our next module which is called Net Games & Racquet Sports. Students in grades 4-6 will be working on basic badminton skills including the underhand serve, the forehand and the backhand. As we progress, we will start to look at more challenging skills like the drop shot, the clear shot and the smash. Students in K-3 will get exposure to basic badminton skills and will begin by using smaller paddles with bean bags and balls. With progress we will introduce badminton racquets and birdies and will continue to develop basic skills while working individually and with a partner.
Badminton Intramurals will start next week for Grades 3-6, please see the schedule below for dates.
Grade 3 & 4- November 6, 13 & 20
