Belmont Station "Quality" Physical Education
Mr. Comins and Mr. Dougherty
What is "Quality" Physical Education?
A program that involves moderate/vigorous activity 90% of the time or more
Intentional fitness - Use of functional equipment
Teacher role modeling of all lessons
Core curriculum content integration
Physical fitness and nutrition integration
Our lessons for the upcoming 2014-2015 school year will reflect a physical education program that stresses physical fitness, nutrition, and motor skills. Belmont Station will continue to teach the Five for Life program. Children in grades one through five will participate at moderate to vigorous levels of physical activity for much of the time they attend physical education class. All activities will be centered around the academic content presented in the Five for Life curriculum. Intensity levels, the five components of fitness, nutrition, the muscular system, and the skeletal system are several of the units that will be taught this upcoming year. Feedback technologies such as heart rate batons, pedometers, and various iPad applications will continue to be stressed this coming school year as well. Please take some time to check out our web page. It will be updated again in September so that our students and parents can see what we will be doing throughout the year. Enjoy your summer break and stay as active as possible.
