Staying Fit and Healthy

Staying active has been a fundamental component of our Virtual School Experience. Our teachers have come up with creative ways of using household items such as shoes, pens and brooms to make sure that we stay fit!

One of the very first activities we did when starting our home learning was to develop yoga routines. In addition to being good for our minds and bodies, these new routines helped us to integrate physical fitness as part of our daily learning at home.

Even our family members got in on the fun! Parents and siblings have been there to help and cheer us on as we took part in the fun PHE challenges. Click on the links below to see more examples of our activities!

EARLY YEARS

In K3 and K4, Ms Isa and Ms Lacritz post videos for PE once a week to help students stay fit and work on their gross motor skills. From the bunny hop to balloon games, everyone has a great time participating in fun activities that get us moving.

Stuffed animals help us learn physical activities, too!

 

In addition to their PHE activities, our Early Years students are also encouraged to think about different ways they can be healthy in other aspects of their life. Their teachers made a fantastic video showing different things that they do to stay healthy.

Students recently had the opportunity to fill the shoes - er, trainers - of their PE teachers. They became personal trainers by designing personalised workouts for their family members.

Early in the term, Grades 6 to 8 danced up a storm for their PHE lessons. Grade 6 focused on Traditional Dance, Grade 7 on Latin Dance and Grade 8 on Modern Dance. From Bollywood to Salsa, our students got quite creative with their fancy footwork.

Grade 9 and 10 students have also been stretching their creative muscules. To see how much their students had learned during the term, the PHE department created a sports trivia activity. The challenge included different charts focusing on various health-related and skill-related components.

Students presented their evidence in a variety of ways, including collages, videos and Power Point. From coordination to agility to muscular strength, students got creative in the different ways they showed that they had successfully completed all of the challenges.
