PHE Learning Centre

Daily physical activity is critical to a child’s physical and mental well-being. While physical activity and unstructured play is important, we need to ensure that positive learning experiences and physical education is part of the fun. We need to keep the 'E' in PE!

The physical education activities have been designed to support children and youth in both the at-home and in-school learning environments in developing, acquiring, and learning the following important competencies:

  • Move – Students will develop psychomotor skills, tactics, and strategies that facilitate a variety of physical activities across diverse environments. 
  • Think - Students will develop cognitive skills and strategies for a variety of movement contexts that facilitate critical thinking, decision-making, and problem-solving
  • Feel - Students will develop affective skills and strategies that facilitate healthy and safe relationships with themselves, with others, and with their environment. 
  • Act - Students will practice behavior skills and strategies that facilitate movement competence and confidence.

The activities have been divided into three categories: at school to reflect the most recent health and safety protocols, at home to support learners in a virtual setting, and those that can be used or modified for both learning contexts. All activities are downloadable for free as print-friendly activity cards.
