Physical Education: Games & Movement

Movement is an important part of education. But what is healthy movement? How do we meet the developmental needs of the growing child?

In Western culture where professional sports hold high status, children may think of movement primarily in terms of team sports. In the WLR Games classes, we aim to give the children basic coordination and movement skills that will help them when they decide to play organized sports. Children engage in a variety of traditional games including circle games, running and tag games, line games and others. These activities help develop skills useful for other sports such as basketball. Students learn to work together as part of a group in both highly active as well as quieter games.

In addition to simply having fun in our popular Games classes, students also work on their social interactions, learning to play with their peers: learning to acknowledge one another, play safely and to gain an appreciation for each other as well as their physical skills and the many types of movement.

Games has always been one of our most popular classes and is now offered at two of our convenient locations for Grades 1-8:

  • Tuesdays in Davis, from 1:10 – 2:00 p.m., led by Dr. Tan
  • Thursdays in Sacramento, from 1:20 – 2:10 p.m., led by Mr. Huff
