Movement & Physical Education

The 4-5s through 7-8s join Movement class twice weekly. In the early fall and late spring, when the weather is accommodating, Movement is held in Central Park. During colder or more inclement weather, it is held in our gym. Through a variety of warm-up exercises, stretching, coordination, and cooperative activities, the Movement & PE program aims to facilitate the growth of students' gross motor skills, and build both individual and group cooperative play.
In the 8-9s and 9-10s, students participate in PE working on developing students' overall coordination levels and physical condition. This is done with the use of individual skill practice sessions, which can lead to games in soccer, hockey, basketball, Neucomb, kickball, and handball.
