Physical Education is essential to developing the whole child. At Peabody School, we focus on increasing each child’s self-confidence and sportsmanship skills. In the younger years, students focus on fundamental movement patterns and develop an understanding of key components of physical activities that are enjoyable and improve their health. As they grow older, they begin to refine and combine skills in complex situations and demonstrate greater proficiency of movement patterns in games and sports while working in pairs and small groups. By Middle School, students develop competency in modified versions of games, sports, and recreational activities while practicing teamwork.
