TCS Lower School Physical Education
Curriculum: We play a variety of tag games with the emphasis on personal and general space and tagging with care and respect of others. We teach developmental skills such as catching, throwing, striking, kicking, dodging, fleeing, juggling and locomotor moves. There is also an assortment of creative games involving many sports skills with an emphasis on the student’s intellectual, spiritual, physical and social growth.
Physical Fitness Challenge: This fitness evaluation is given two times a year to all first through fifth grade students to evaluate their individual fitness level. The first is a practice test given in November to let the students know where they fit in the standards and what goals to set. The second test is in March. Fitness awards are announced at the last Spirit Day and given to the students who successfully meet the requirements. The following components of fitness are measured: flexibility, muscular strength, muscular endurance, speed and agility.
