Dear students and family members,  

The Physical Education teachers at King St. Elementary will be posting a variety of games/activities on a weekly basis, to help you stay physically active while schools are closed. You can access these games/activities by going to Mr. Williston’s and Mr. Noel’s teacher page located on the King St. website.  

We recommend a minimum of 30 mins of physical activity a day. This can be completed in one session or broken down into mini (10-15 mins) sessions.  

We will be using many different resources including: Youtube,, BOKS Canada, etc. to provide you with activities that can be completed at home with little or no equipment and limited space. Please remember that not all activities have to be completed and you and your family can come up with your own ways to be active.  

Please check with an adult before starting any activity and follow the social distancing rules.  

As teachers and parents, ourselves, we understand that this is new for everyone. We are here to support you. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact us at the following addresses: 

Thank You,  

Mr. Williston

Mr. Noel

Today’s “Physical Activity Challenge”


Part 1: Go outside for at least 30 minutes.  


Part 2: Try a new activity that you have not for a while (sliding, snowshoeing, going for a walk or jog).



Did you know that whole grain bread (the brown kind) is the best choice to eat for your health? Whole grains are the seed kernels from cereal plants.


Whole grains have three parts: 1. The endosperm 2. The bran 3. The germ. If you eat the whole grain, you are eating all three parts and getting all the vitamins, minerals and fiber from the grain.


White flour is used to make white bread and has had the bran and germ removed from the grain (not a good idea). When we eat whole grains, our body gets lots of energy (called carbohydrates) that will last for a long time.


Try this quiz and see what you remember.


1.       Is a whole grain a seed kernel or plant root?


2.       How many parts in a whole grain?


3.       What is the best type of bread to eat?


4.       Why do we need to eat whole grains?


5.       The energy we get from eating whole grains only lasts a short time. True or False

Today’s “Physical Activity Challenge”


Part 1: Go outside for at least 30 minutes.  

Part 2: Dance your best Irish jig to some fun Saint Patrick’s day themed music.


Did you know that vegetables are loaded with nutrients and are full of the vitamins, minerals and fiber we need to be healthy?


There are 5 different types of vegetables (I didn’t know that until now).


Type 1: Dark green vegetables – Example: broccoli, kale


Type 2: Starchy vegetables – Example: potatoes, corn


Type 3: Red and orange vegetables – Example: carrots, pumpkins


Type 4: Beans and peas – Example: black beans, kidney beans


Type 5: All other vegetables – Example: lettuce, onions


Try to eat vegetables from each group as much as possible and remember that lots of them don’t even need to be cooked before you eat them.


Fresh vegetables are a healthy choice, but not always available, so try frozen ones because they are still loaded with all the nutrients we need.




Try this quiz and see what you remember.


1.       How many types of vegetables did you read about?


2.       Blue and green vegetables are one of the types listed. True or False


3.       Vegetables only have fiber in them. True or False


4.       Only fresh vegetables are good to eat. True or False


5.       List the vegetables you can eat raw.

Good Morning KSE Family,

Each day I will be posting a tip for a healthy lifestyle that I hope you can read and share with your family.

Day 1 – Tip #1 “A Healthy Diet”

Have some fruit!

All fruits are full of vitamins and these are needed to keep you healthy. Did you know that vitamins help you see different colours? Vitamins help you to see better and they turn food into energy. Vitamins help your bones grow stronger.

Fruits are also full of minerals.  Minerals help your body fight off infections and heal after a cut. Minerals help your brain and nerves work so you can control your body and keep your muscles strong.

Fruits are full of fiber and fiber helps you poop (Yes, I said “Poop”), so they help carry away waste (and when I say “waste” I really mean poop).

Also, fruit come with their own wrappers that you just need to peel, like oranges, so they are an easy snack for anyone.


Try this quiz and see what you remember.

1.      1. Fruits are full of __________. (Fill in the blank)

2.      2. Minerals in fruit keep you muscles strong. Ture or False

3.      3. The fiber in fruit helps me ____________. (Fill in the blank)

4.      4. List you three favorite fruits. 1.________________ 2. ._______________  3. ._______________ 

5.      5. List a fruit that comes in its own wrapper that is not an orange. _________________
