Over the past couple of weeks we’ve been working on an interview with our gym teacher Mr. Fraser. We did a Q&A with him and we learned a lot about him.We learned a lot about his favorite sports, players, and teams. We enjoyed learning about him and hope you do too.
Every 4 years, Chickering School has their own version of the Winter Olympics, when the real Olympics are taking place. Ms Riordan and Mr. Fraser, our physical education [P.E.] teachers, used our P.E. or gym equipment, to replicate the actual Olympic events. The events include: Biathlon, Cross Country Skiing, Curling, Luge, Skeleton, and Speed Skating. To recognize these activities they appear as follows:
. Biathlon – children “skate” on styrofoam, then shoot a basketball or yarn ball into a basket
. Cross Country Skiing – 2 children “skiing” together
. Curling – children use a hockey stick to push donut-shaped rings into a circle
. Luge – sitting on scooters and being pushed by another student
. Skeleton – lying on the scooter
. Speed Skating – children “skate” on styrofoam
Ms Riordan and Mr. Fraser asked us to review and edit about 500 photos from our Olympic events … this took a very long time! We hope you enjoy our photo review of the Winter Olympic.
Our school has a reward system for being nice to others and demonstrating good sportsmanship. It is called Chickering All-Stars. Sit back and relax as you meet our Physical Education teacher, Ms Riordan, as we talk about Chickering All-Stars.
