Rivendell Physical Education

In the Beginning

Welcome back to a new school year! What better place to start than at the beginning. Our first weeks are always spent on fundamentals: footwork, throwing and catching skills. We start with underhand and overhand throws, self catch, catching with a partner, and then catching in a group.

When catching in a group, the focus is on teamwork and cooperation. Are they paying attention, showing their friends they are ready, and making good throws that are easy to catch?

All these things are just as important for Older Kids as for the preschoolers!
