Physical Education Newsletter – April, 2024

According to the Manitoba Provincial Curriculum of Physical Education, one of the emphasis is on the acquisition of movement skills, with the application to simple activities/games (grades 1 to 3) and sports (grades 4 to 6). In April, students will continue to engage in a variety of games and activities to improve movement skills, personal fitness and enjoyment. As an extension of the Physical Education program, throughout the school year, we provide our students with opportunities to engage in various intramural and club activities tailored to their interest, fostering the enhancement of movement skills, personal fitness, and social abilities.

Intramural and Club Activities: The Mulvey School soccer teams have demonstrated outstanding sportsmanship in the inner-city Soccer league, competing in 11 games and representing with excellence. They deserve our sincere appreciation for their achievements.

The Mulvey School Basketball Team will be participating in the tournament hosted by Meadows West School scheduled for April 11 (AM).

There will be a YOGA session for primary grades (1 to 3) in April every Monday from 12:30-1:00. 

We will continue to offer our students Before School Open Gym sessions throughout April.

Mulvey School Physical Education Program Overview

2023 - 2024

Introduction

Acquisition of movement skills is a key factor for students choosing to lead physically active and healthy lifestyles. Students are less likely to participate in physical activities and recreational sport if they have not learned the skills or experienced success in applying them. The fundamental movement skills that we teach our students in our program are the foundation or building blocks of an active lifestyle during adolescence.

Physical Education Learning Outcomes Explanation

Mulvey School Physical Education Program is based on the Manitoba Curriculum Framework of outcomes for Active Healthy Lifestyles.

The aim of the program is to provide students with planned and balanced programming to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes for physically active and healthy lifestyles. The vision is physically active and healthy lifestyles for all students.

Curriculum Content and Learning Outcomes

Curriculum content is organized within the following five learning outcomes:

  • Movement: The student will demonstrate competency in selected movement skills, and learning experiences.
  • Fitness Management: The student will develop physical activity habits, personal fitness and preparing them for lifelong physical activity and well-being.
  • Safety: The student will demonstrate safe and responsible behaviours to manage risks and prevent injuries in physical activity participation.
  • Personal and Social Management: the student will demonstrate the ability to work cooperatively with others, and to build positive relationships with others.
  • Healthy lifestyle Practices: The student will demonstrate the ability to make informed decisions for healthy living related to personal health practices, active living, and healthy nutritional practices.
