Hey boys and girls. For this week I would like my Grade 4/5 students to continue completing their Phys Ed Log from the previous week and the Grade 2/3 to continue with the DEAM Calendar which is for the month of January. Just a reminder that I will be collecting both the Phys Ed Logs and DEAM Calendars at the end of our home learning. Look for new material to be sent home with next weeks learning packet on Friday.

As a bonus to help get yourself moving check the daily workout that should only take a few minutes of your time. It will be titled by the day of the week.

Hey everyone. Attached is a winter activity choice board that will help students complete their Physical Education Logs (Grade 4/5) and also their DEAM Calendars (Grade 2/3). 

Hey everyone and Happy New Year! Hopefully you received the Physical Education log that came in your learning pack. Each day students will be expected to do their best at checking off the three different sections of Physical Activity to give you 60 minutes in total. The categories are Activite Outside, Walking with family and friends and Dance. This comes to a total of 60 minutes. Being active outside should be the easy complete as there are many activties you can do this time of year such as building a snow fort, skating on an outdoor rink, snow shoeing, cross country skiing or building a snow man. If you are new to dancing (it can also be any movement to music) I am posting a few links that will help you get this portion completed. If you have any questions at all about the Phys Ed Log please do not hesitate to email me at

Logs will be collected at the end of our Home Learning.

Hey everyone and Happy New Year! Attached is your weekly Phys Ed Calendar that you can follow along to and complete. To keep track of how active you have been please use the DEAM (Drop Everything And Move) check list that was sent home in the learning pack. Try your best to complete the Choice Board that is attached and also one item each day from the DEAM Calendar. If you have any questions at all please email me at

Grade 2-5:

Hey boys and girls. We have been working on overhand throwing activities the past several weeks and so today we will continue to practice those skills with a few activities laid out below.


Warm-up- In an area in your home make sure you have enough space to do the following - Jog in place for 45 seconds, complete 10 squats, complete 5 burpees and complete 25 jumping jacks. Try to do three rounds of these exercises to get your body warmed-up. If you do not have enough space in your living area go for a brisk walk for 15-20 minutes in your neighbourhood. 


Activity #1:

"Surprise Rebounder". Find a ball of any size and a wall. Have someone stand behind you with the ball and throw it against the wall without you looking. How quick can you react to catch the ball? After five catches switch roles and you play the role of thrower and have that person try to catch the ball. Remember our throwing steps - bring arm in circular motion up to your ear, step with thhe opposite foot and release. 

Activity #2:

"Sock fight". Roll up several pairs of socks and these will act as your object to throw. Find a few family member or friends to play with. Each player begins with a pair of socks rolled up with their hands. Count backward together from five and when you hit zero let the games begin by trying to throw a pair of socks at other people. Each player has three lives and when hit they lose a life. Last player to keep all their lives wins.

Hey boys and girls. I hope everyone is doing fine and staying safe. Below is your Phys Ed Lesson for Grades 3-5 for Tuesday.


Warm-up- Go for a 15 minute walk (with a parent) or complete the following exercises: 20 jumping jacks, 5 burpees, 10 squats and 5 push-ups.

Skill- We have been working on overhand throw and catch the past few classes. Today I would like you to take a ball and find a wall to practice your throwing against. If you don't have a ball roll up a pair of socks or crumple a piece of paper. The steps are as follows:

1. Eyes at target and point non-throwing hand

2. Bring throwing hand around by your ear

3. Pull throwing arm in a downward motion (remember string light!) and step with opposite foot.

If you have a sibling or a parent that is willing to play catch with you it'll make your throwing practice even better.

Game- You will need a player to play against and four or five paper balls. This game is a "snow ball fight". Divide the room you are using in half and attempt to use your overhand throw to hit the other person with a paper ball. Each time you hit them you receieve a point. If you get hit that is the amount of jumping jacks you will have to complete at the end of the activity.

Have fun!!!

Hey everyone! I hope you have been following our Phys Ed Lesson Calendar that has been posted each Monday and are doing your best to stay sharp. With the new "Circuit Breaker" restrictions I thought I would share some charade activities that you can try within your family bubble this weekend. This will not only be a fun way to enjoy each others company but also get you moving either indoors or outdoors. 

It looks like we will be doing more online learning at least to start next week so please check back Monday morning for your weekly Phys Ed Lessons.

Have a great weekend!

Hey everyone! I hope your week is going well and that you are getting outside to practice your soccer skills and using the DEAM Calendar to keep track of your physical activity. Below is another activity that will allow you to not only keep fit but to also get creative. The first link is a "Fruit Fortune Teller" that you can cut out and create to try on your family and friends. After trying that out the second link allows you to make up your own using healthy food and other exercises (try burpees, mountain climbers, push-ups, jumping jacks, inch worms). If you need help understanding of how to fold the fortune teller there will be a link to a youtube video at the end of this paragraph. The weather has been great so get outside and stay active!

One way to work out while keeping our physical distancing is with Tabata workouts which are broken into 20 second sets of exercises followed by a 10 second break between each one. Students in Grades 3-5 are familiar with these as we used them as a warm-up throughout the year on numerous occassions. If you are unsure of what an exercise looks like use ctrl and click the link to see a short video. Enjoy keeping fit!

Hey boys and girls. I found a neat challenge on the web that takes no time at all and all you need is a water bottle. Here is how it works:

-Fill a water bottle up halfway 

-Time yourself for one minute

-Complete 3 jumping jacks and flip the bottle two times for every 3 jumping jacks

-Each successful flip equals one point.

How many points can you get in one minute??? Send a video or picture and send it to me showing our learning community how you've been staying active!

An example of this challenge is:

Hey everyone! I hope all of my students have been keeping active over the past few weeks. I just wanted to let everyone know that each week I have been putting various challenges on the "3-5 Home Learning Page" which is located at the top of this screen. My hope is that students give the challenges a try in order to stay active. It is really important for our overall well-being both physically and mentally that we do some kind of physical activity for at least 30 minutes a day. For myself personally I've been keeping it very simple by going for an hour long walk each day and also running some in and around my neighbourhood.

If you find yourself at a loss of what to do you can always use some of the links that I have put up on this page. My personal favourite is the Body Coach who does a daily 30 minute workout which can really push you.

I have received a few photos and videos through email of students being active and helping out around the house so please keep those coming by sending them to

If you have any questions about the challenges or physical education in general please do not hesitate to email me!
