Autumn activities like field and track, as well as orienteering, are sadly over because the weather has turned so chilly, but it is not quite cold enough for winter sports yet either. For that reason English Class third and fourth graders have indoor physical education (p.e.).
On Wednesday of this week various gymnastic stations were set up throughout the gymnasium. All of the activities help develop strength, coordination and flexibility.
Children were able to tumble and do somersaults on mats, play on the rings, climb the ropes, work on the balance beam, use the vaulting horse, and more.
Participation in gymnastics in p.e. develops body awareness, control, and coordination which is beneficial to other physical activities, sports, and everyday life.
