PE Update: Winter Sports for the Win

In physical education this week, our younger grades got to try some indoor winter activities, including speed skating (on pinnies), igloo building (with mats), and snowball rolling (with paddles and balls). Also, with the first snowfall of the season, we offered some crucial winter reminders:

Sneakers are essential! We had many students wearing boots this week, but having a pair of sneakers for PE not only keeps feet and ankles safe, but it also preserves our gym floors and ensures they aren’t slippery.

In addition, just because it is cold out doesn’t mean we won’t take advantage of all the outdoors can offer for winter movement opportunities. We will still go on hikes, and when the conditions are right, each grade takes a whirl at sledding on Claflin hill. So jackets, boots, hats, gloves, and snow pants are needed both for recess and for those winter days when we want to take our program outside.

Hydration is no less important in the winter. We might not be as sweaty and thirsty as we are on those hot fall and spring days, but a water bottle is still needed to ensure we are healthy and fueled up for strenuous effort.

We look forward to launching into new adventures in the new year!
