Welcome to physical education at The Villages Charter School. This year I will be teaching at both the Primary Center and the 4th and 5th Grade Center where your child will experience fitness and fun. Your child and I will work together to set goals and learn more about becoming physically fit. Students come to PE each day for 30 minutes.
Primary Center: At the primary center we are moving into our Presidential Fitness Pre-Testing. Students will participate in five different fitness tests: 1/4 Mile Run, Push Ups, Curl Ups, Shuttle Run, and Sit and Reach. These tests are designed to measure cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strenght, muscular endurance, speed, agility, and flexibility. They will also be practicing skills they have learned from our previous unit.
4th and 5th Grade Center: At the 4th and 5th Grade center we are starting our school year in our “Introductory Games/Fitness Pre-Testing” unit. Each week will consist of 2-3 days of skill related activities that are cohesive with our current unit, as well as 2 days of fitness.
