P.E for Preps

Physical Education
By Leigh Collins-P.E Coordinator

This term the focus for the new preps at the school will be introducing them to routines like meeting in a circle in the middle of the basketball court. We have also started a P.M.P program Perceptual Motor Program that focuses on children’s balance and depth perception and its also really good fun. I have introduced the children to the big mat, trampoline and balance beam. A lot of the focus through the term is co-operative play, which galvanizes the group into working in teams and working individually. We have learnt some new games and I will continue to introduce games as we head into second term. Thank you to all the parents’ assistance and children for being appropriately dressed for sport and thank you to all the kids for wearing their hats this term, I have been very impressed with their efforts in this regard.
