In the Gymnastics Unit students will work on a variety of rolling, movement, balance, vaulting and jumping skills. Each student in Grades 3-5 will create and practice a short routine using the skills learned in class, or from previous experience, that will be performed in front of their classmates at the end of the unit.

Students in Grades 3-5 will be assessed on their demonstration of a variety of rolling, movement, balance and vaulting/jumping skills at a level appropriate to the grade level.

Each grade levels 1 hour PE class will take place in the Gymnastics room, in the basement of the PE building, so the students will need to remove their shoes and socks. Please send your child to school in their full PE uniform with easy to take on and off shoes.

If you have any question please do not hesitate to contact your child’s PE teacher.

New Year, New Unit

Happy New Year and Welcome Back!
For the next 4 weeks students will focus on a variety of fitness games that encourage regular and fun physical activity. They will also learn to pace themselves to be able to jog a prescribed distance comfortably without walking. (K-2 half mile, 3-6 - 1 mile). The Track section of the unit is an introduction to some track and field events such as relays, high jump, long jump and discus. 

NB: Please note that all students are required to wear the CAC PE uniform for every PE lesson, either the new red shirts (available at the spirit store), or the old PE uniform. If the weather is cold you can wear jogging pants and a sweatshirt, with the PE uniform underneath.

PE Uniform and Winter Wear

Our new PE uniform has arrived at the Spirit Store and is ready for purchase. We hope to see all students wearing the new uniform in PE classes in the near future. For this year the students can also wear PE uniforms from past years.

Winter wear:

As the temperature begins to get cooler the students can come to PE classes with their uniforms on and they can wear a sweater, which can be their own or a CAC one, and track pants. As a reminder we expect students to come to PE classes wearing the PE uniform, sneakers & socks, no jewelry and their hair up if necessary.

If you have any questions please email us or stop by at anytime.
