PE Skateboarding Unit Grade 2 and Grade 4

Dear Families,

Beginning on October 5th, students in Grade 2 and Grade 4 will be starting their skateboarding unit. This is often a highlight unit for students as it gives a lot of opportunities for safe risk taking and demonstrating self-regulation skills.

Students must wear sport shoes (no crocs or sandals) and proper gear for all lessons.

This year, due to Covid-19, we are requiring all students to bring in their own helmet, knee pads, elbow pads, and wrist guards.

Here are some locations where you may be able to purchase the gear:

Decathlon Royal City

The GioiPatin (multiple locations in Hanoi)

Hanoi Skate Shop

You may also consider ordering from Lazada.

When sending the gear to school:

  • Write your child’s name and homeroom on each piece of equipment.
  • Put all items in a bag with your child’s name and homeroom.

We will store the gear at school, if you would like, or you may bring it home when your child needs the equipment for other activities.

Thank you for supporting us in making this unique opportunity a reality for our students. Please reach out to your child’s PE teacher if you have any questions or concerns about the gear or unit.

Skateboarding Unit

Grades 2 and 4 will begin their skateboarding unit on October 1st. This unit will run until November 1st.

All students must wear sport shoes. If a student wears sandals, crocs, or other inappropriate footwear, they will not be able to participate in the skateboarding activities.

Students are allowed to bring their own skateboards, helmets, elbow pads, and knee pads for this unit.

Trampolining units starting….

Next week 25th march) we will be starting our Trampolining unit in Grade 2 and G4. This will run at the same time as swimming.

Due to the surface of our tramps, the students need to wear clothing that covers their elbows, knees, and feet. We suggest a long sleeved top, 3/4 or full-length tights and socks.

Students should bring this outfit in a bag and they can leave it at school to change into before and after PE lessons.

Grade 2 – Monday & Wednesday: Trampolining. Thursday: Swimming

Grade 4 – Tuesday and Wednesday: Trampolining. Friday: Swimming

Thank you for your support and if you have any questions, please let us know.

Outside PE units coming up…

After the October break, we are making the most of the beautiful Autumn weather and will be outside for the majority of our lessons.

Please make sure students come to school on PE days prepared for this. Correct PE uniform, hat, water bottle, and lastly sneakers or running shoes.

Thanks-you for your support.

Yours in Health,


Grade 2’s creating games

Grade 2’s have started off the year learning about sportsmanship and the components of a game. This week they have been playing evasion games and using their creativity to modify the rules, equipment, and boundaries. Keeping in mind the two most important ingredients of a game is to be FUN and FAIR!

All of these games can be played at home, in the park or playground so have a go together and see what new games you can create!
