Report card season is around the corner, so here is some information on how assessment rolls out in our PE classes:
How do you play? How do you demonstrate and showcase your growth and development in PE? How do you show how you “learn how to learn” and “learn how to get along” in an activity based setting? How do you self assess on a daily basis? All very important items we consider while looking at assessment in PE.
The outcomes of PE are broken down into four categories referred to as the ABCD’s: Activity (Skill), Benefits Health (TGIF activities – Team Games & Improving Fitness), Cooperation and Do It Daily (Participation). Within those four categories, we highlight some of the key points that we are looking for when assessing students in physical education. These key points are outlined in our rubric (attached below) and assessed on a 4 point scale to align with the 4 report card descriptors: Beginning, Approaching Proficient, Proficient and Exemplary. In addition, students have been given the opportunity to self assess daily as they leave the gym at the end of class (see the photo below).
Ultimately, we want all of our students to have fun, get involved, be active and become physically literate in PE!
Time is flying and we are already into November. All classes are scheduled to be indoors for the month of November so it is important that all students are bringing an appropriate change of clothes and shoes for physical activity. Check the calendar below to find out what activity your class is scheduled to do. Also stay tuned for some exciting “Movember” activities that will be appearing soon!

Our Planksgiving Challenge is back!
For the month of October we not only want to give thanks but we also want to hold planks in PE. We have started the Planksgiving Challenge where students will hold the plank position for a set amount of time each day. If they complete the challenge, they will get their name entered in a draw to win some awesome t-shirts! We encourage everyone to participate but it is not mandatory. Feel free to join in on the fun!! Take a look at the Planksgiving Challenge below:

A big Wolfpack welcome to all of our students for the 2018/2019 school year! We have had a great start to the new school year so far in all PE classes. Mr. McLachlan, Mr. Chan, Mr. Bradshaw, and Mrs. Woitas are all excited to be back in the gym this year. Our PE spaces have shrunk so far this year with the construction going on for the modernization but with the recent snowfalls we still have had tons of fun sharing the gym. Thanks to our amazing students for being flexible and making the best of the tight spaces and combined classes!
