St. Andrew’s is committed to daily physical activity in grades K-5. Physical Education classes focus on helping students build fundamental skills, develop healthy habits and promote sportsmanship through games and activities.
In kindergarten, students attend 30-minute classes. Our focus is to teach the students the value of physical activity and develop key social skills including good sportsmanship and teamwork. We introduce them to a variety of skills to improve balance, hand and eye coordination, flexibility and strength. Jump roping, throwing, catching, kicking, and movement education are just a few they are introduced to and practice throughout the year.
In grades 1-4, students attend 30-minute classes and rotate through units to develop skills such as throwing and catching, jump roping, striking, movement education, juggling, climbing, rhythmical movement and kicking/punting.
In grade 5, students attend 30 minute-classes and the primary focus for this age group is introducing them to activities. Some include volleyball, flag football, archery, kickball, spikeball, floor hockey, basketball, badminton, pickball, table tennis, soccer and track.
