Our current unit is Personal Fitness. We are learning to be an active participant in developing our fitness level. We are also learning to monitor our activity level using the F.I.T.T. principle (Frequency, Intensity, Type of exercise, and Time duration) and set personal goals to improve some aspects of our various health-related fitness components (cardiovascular endurance, muscular endurance, muscular strength, flexibility, body composition) and skill-related fitness components (speed, power, agility, balance, coordination, reaction time). We know we are successful when we can participate in the above fitness activities cooperatively and safely and display good sportsmanship. We know we are successful if we can take our pulse and monitor the change of fitness level over time. We know we are successful if we could perform the various fitness exercises with proper technique (e.g. push-up, planks, jump squat, wall-sit, sit-up).

At home, primary students are encouraged to do some yoga exercises that are taught in class (e.g. Alphabet yoga poses, breathing exercises) for 20 minutes. This will help students to relax and stay calm while improving their flexibility, strength, and balance. Students can find many 'yoga for kids' videos on Youtube which they can follow along.
For grade seven students at home, they can continue with their individual fitness training plan based on the SMART goals they have set. This will develop the particular health-related and skill-related fitness component(s) which each student has identified as an area for improvement this term.
