I will be using this bog as a way to stay connected to you, the parents. It is very important that you stay part of your child’s education and understand what it is that they are doing at school. I will be posting throughout the year on what your children are doing in m class. I look forward to a wonderful year with all of you!

During the school year your child will also receive instruction in health areas such as: nutrition, exercise and fitness, and body systems. It is a goal of the Physical Education program to prepare children to make healthy lifestyle choices and enjoy being physically active.

Please take note on the following for PE  for this academic year:

-Proper shoes (trainers/running shoes) are required for all lessons.

-Proper sports clothes are required for all lessons.

– Water bottles and hats and hats or sun block are highly recommended since most lessons are outdoors.

I anticipate a great school year in Physical Education with your child! Your help and cooperation is vital to the success of our physical education program. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to get in touch with me at school by  e-mail at elenap@bfischool.org

FENCING – 4th Grade

Written by Elena Pons. Posted in ES PE

4th Graders had the wonderful chance to experience Fencing with two professional Instructors in the Pavelló de la Mar Bella. Our students were highly motivated to learn the basics of an unknown sport for most of them. Please find below some pictures of our P.E. Field Trip last May 15th.

Last Thursday May 7th, BFIS hosted the 2nd BISA Hockey Tournament for students from 3rd to 6th grade. This time the school invited to participate at this tournament was ESB, La Escuela Suiza de Barcelona. The 2-hour tournament was very exciting. Both schools participated very energetically and enthusiastically. At the end the Swiss School won the Tournament, but matches were very tight in general. I want to thank all the families, students and high school students who made this event possible, and obviously, the ESB for being such a great rival. We hope to offer this kind of positive experiences in the near future.

Please, find some pictures below.

Badminton !!!

Written by Elena Pons. Posted in ES PE

With only 6000 licences in Spain, Badminton is nowadays more well known after last summer Carolina Marin became World Champion 2014 in women’s singles final and became the first Spaniard to win a World Championship title and the third European female player in achieving the gold medal.  Aged only 21, she became the youngest European world champion ever. We are bringing this great sport to school and learning the basics. February is dedicated to Badminton at BFIS and our students from 3rd grade to 5th grade will have the chance to experience it.  We also introduced SPIRIBOL.  Here  are some photos.
