P. E. also means Pure Enjoyment!
The first objective of physical education is that your child has fun. Secondly, your child improves in learning more of what P.E. is all about. They will be introduced to basic techniques such as proper running, kicking, throwing and catching. This also helps improve hand-eye coordination.
Studies show that a child who participates in P.E. listens and has an easier time focusing in class. The basic methods of P.E. that are instilled at Covenant Schools helps your child learn and prepare for everyday things such as running, walking and cooperating with friends and family.
Your child will learn through instruction and redirection. By the end of the year your child will be excited about P.E. and want to continue in sports of some sort.
For the toddlers and twos, the goal of P.E. is simply to help them with their motor skill development. For the three-year-olds and four-year-olds the goal is to help prepare them for everyday life activities; as well as establish a healthy lifestyle of how and what to eat and what to do to continue to live healthy and happy.
For everyone involved at Covenant Schools, Physical Education helps reinforce the knowledge that the fun and joy of exercise can be enjoyed at every age!
