Walk to School 2018 runs from the 8th of October through to 2nd November.
Active schools make for active learners
Healthy travel means healthy kids
There are so many reasons to join Walk to School in 2018. Walking, riding or scooting to and from school is a great way to work towards the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity, every day. Plus, kids who are active are more likely to develop healthy habits that lead to lifelong health benefits. Last year, more than 140,000 Victorian primary school kids got involved, and you can too!
Challenge cards will be available from Emma during PE.
Classroom calender’s will be displayed in each classroom – don’t forget to let your teacher know if you walked, scooted and rode to school!
The students in Grade 5/6 have been focusing on the unit of “fitness” and understanding the benefits of being physically fit and healthy. The students completed the beep test and 20m sprint test as pre assessment and will complete these tests again in Term 4 as a post assessment. They students completed exercise journals to help them understand how much physical activity they are currently completing and we discussed ways we can increase this activity. The students also developed new exercises to add to our fitness circuit we completed at the start of each lesson.
