Communication Letter

Sydney Academy- Grade 9

Physical Education

Derrick Hill

2016-2017

Physical Literacy is the learning of fundamental movement skills and fundamental sport skills that permit a child to read their environment and make appropriate decisions, allowing them to move confidently and with control in a wide range of physical activity situations. Children who are “physically literate” are able to move with competence in a wide variety of physical activities.

The physical education curriculum promotes physical literacy and engages students in learning about the factors that contribute to health and well-being and in building skills to live healthy, active lives. Research has shown a connection between increased levels of physical activity and better academic achievement, better concentration, better classroom behavior, and more focused learning. Other benefits include improvements in emotional well-being, and the ability to cope with stress.

Assessment:

Students will be assessed according to participation, preparation for class, class behavior, and completion of curriculum outcomes. 

Communication:

A parent or guardian may communicate with me by email, calling the school, and through parent-teacher conferences.

In the event that I need to communicate with a parent, I will either call or send a note home. A conference may be requested.

Thank you,

Derrick Hill
