Grade 1 PE Games Brochure





The mission of PYP PE at AISB is to prepare, engage, and inspire all students in the

skills, knowledge and attitudes that will enable them to experience the joy of

movement throughout their lives.

The experiences that learners have in PE during their time at AISB should reflect this

mission and as such will be a balanced blend of:

Active Living: Learners are challenged and supported in acquiring the movement

skills that will allow them to participate actively in a range of physical activities.

Learners understand the concepts, and strategies that will enable them to

confidently, competently and creatively engage in a range of physical activities,

including using their physical capabilities to explore the natural environment.

Interactions: Learners develop and use personal, interpersonal, behavioural,

social and cognitive skills and strategies to promote a sense of personal identity

and wellbeing. Learners are competent in building and maintaining positive

relationships which promote positive movement experiences.

Identity: Learners understand and appreciate the links that movement has with

culture and personal identity. Learners understand that a positive perception of

self can strengthen resilience in situations of adversity.

This year, Grade 1 students were asked to create their own PE games working in

groups, by inventing rules and drawing visual aids. These were then played by

students during class, and it was a world of fun!

This exercise allows students to recognize the challenges presented by each game,

the importance of manipulating space. Working together to categorize games and to

identify and develop appropriate skills and strategies, our Grade 1s reached an

authentic learning experience. They then went on to better understand the

importance of rules and how they define the nature of a game. Some games were an

adaptation of known rules, as students modified existing games and created new


More importantly, students learned to work together in a team and were very

excited to see their games actively played by other children!

Flip through this booklet to see the kids' original drawings and the explained rules.

Who knows, you might just find a new favorite playground game for your kids!

they will be free to run again. If people are

tagged with a treasure (bean bag) in their hand,

they need to go to prison. (a marked place ). To

go out of the prison people need to do 5 jumping

jacks. After a while change the pirate with
