Physical Education

In Aidan's Physical Education Program, our goal is to help children to discover and explore a diverse selection of activities that promote a lifelong healthy lifestyle. Our curriculum includes opportunities in physical, social, and emotional health education. The encouragement of risk taking, problem solving, choice, and self-challenge afford children an opportunity to learn about themselves in a safe and supportive environment.

The Physical Education Program uses a skill-based curriculum. The units taught are dodging, chasing, fleeing, throwing, catching, kicking, striking, striking with implements, body management, gymnastics, dance, and individual/dual sports.

The units are repeated each year, and the scaffolding builds from acquisition to mastery. How far a student moves is determined by determination and ability. We encourage them to make a genuine effort and to find their personal best. We reinforce that there are many ways to have a lifelong healthy lifestyle.
