PYP PE at KIS is well and truly underway after the Christmas holidays and we have Primary Sports Day next Friday (17th January). As previously mentioned, very soon we are going to a new format of Google sites for the PE blog so the information for Sports Day is on the new website. You can read all the information for next weeks’ events here:)
Very soon, we will be changing the format for the PE blogs so it will be easier to navigate and to gain information about what is going on in PYP PE at KIS. We will be using Google sites and there will be lots more options to read about your child’s’ PE lessons. I’ve included the link so please feel free to check out the new blog and all the other information below! Have a great break and see you next term!
Students in G3-5 have been finishing off their Net games unit, where they have been investigating the links between Volleyball, Tennis and Badminton. Have a look at the students below playing a Badminton ladder tournament and also playing a fun game of Tennis-Cricket at the end of the lesson!
What a day for the Primary KIS athletes!! KIS regained their two AISAA Athletics crowns this week with a fantastic display at Berkeley International School. Both the G5_U and the G3-U produced some amazing displays, especially in the track events, to secure the 2019 title just ahead of Concordian and Berkeley. See below for some of the highlights.

Just before the October break, students from Grades 1-5 took part in the annual House Sports Spirit Day which saw them pit their wits against each other in team ball games and handball.
During an exciting morning, Grades 1-2 played a super active version of ‘capture the flag’ where the students captured plenty of balls (instead of a flag) whilst trying not to be tagged.
Grade 3 were next up after break and produced some fabulous shooting and passing skills in their handball competition – quite an amazing achievement considering they have only started learning the activity this term. The anticipation was building and after lunch, and there was a frenzied atmosphere as Grades 4-5 began their handball games in the new sports hall to a crescendo of noise. All houses got behind their respective teams and cheered them on until they were out of breath! The teams all displayed quick passing, great defending and sharp shooting as well as commitment, desire and teamwork in one of the most exciting and close competitions ever seen at KIS.
Well done everybody – what an incredible day! Watch the video below for some highlights!

Students in G4&5 have been working really hard to improve their freestyle technique.. so we have given them a helping hand by filming them with a GoPro camera! Students have performed a dive, glide and freestyle action – then watched themselves back using the Seesaw application and commented on their own technique. They have also compared their technique with this time last year and seen how much they have improved! Watch this video of the incredible improvements Ananya, Yama and Arty have made since G3!
