Scholars here at Segue receive PE and Health throughout the entire year. One semester with Mr. Bilyj, the other with Ms. Cordeiro. Scholars will learn about basic health and wellness, fitness, social/emotional health, physical growth and development, and how to stay fit and healthy for the future.
In Physical Education class we are currently working on our unit in Fitness, which includes testing sit ups, push ups, squats, shuttle run, 1/4 mile run, along with the Pacer Test. This will allow us as instructors to have a baseline for the students and to see where their cardiovascular endurance and strength are at the beginning of the year. From there we will be moving into soccer. In soccer, we will learn basic fundamental skills and perform drills that will allow us to be successful in a game setting. The skills we will learn will focus on our balance, hand and eye coordination, dribbling, foot work, and speed. We will learn about these skills and incorporate them into different games. Other units to be covered throughout the year include: Speed ball, Handball, Basketball, Hockey, Volleyball, Tennis, and Ultimate Frisbee.
In Health class we will be covering a variety of topics which are extremely engaging, focus on enhancing ones life, and promotes healthy behaviors in students. The topics include puberty, nutrition, gender identity & sexual orientation, immune system, digestive system, smoking, stress, sleep, non communicable diseases, advertisement, eating disorders, male & female reproductive systems, STD's, drug abuse, and healthy relationships.
