During PE we try to make connections to the current units of inquiry. The children test their fitness levels in different ways during healthy living units, they look at creating their own physical activities and overcome challenges in groups or on their own. In units where there are no clear connections we work on many different skills in the gym including climbing, running, throwing and catching and collaborative game skills. By providing a wide array of sports we hope that every child finds a sport they enjoy and in this way preparing them for a lasting participation in our sports culture.
Children at ISD have Physical Education (PE) twice a week with Mr. Sytse. The children from Group 0, 1 and 2 have gym in the speellokaal at Jaffalaan on Mondays and Wednesdays. The children from Group 3 to 8 have gym on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Fridays in a nearby gym at the Oostpoort school.
