Our physical education program will help children become competent in a variety of motor skills and movements. Children will experience a broad variety of movement activities and develop an understanding of movement principles, which include body awareness, space awareness, and qualities of movement.
At New Hope-Solebury Lower Elementary, all of the K-2 grade students attend physical education class one time out of the six day schedule for 45 minutes each. Our physical education program centers increased attention on human wellness and healthful living. Teaching for wellness involves exploring concepts that help students develop an active lifestyle. The physical education program will provide children with an opportunity to participate in activities designed to develop and maintain personal health through physical activity and fitness. Students will develop an understanding of how to maintain wellness throughout life.
At NHS, we hope that by participating in our physical education program, children will enjoy being active, learn important fitness concepts, develop good social skills, and maintain a positive self-concept.
