The PE Hub colour system has been designed to promote the principle of teaching to pupils’ current ability and their readiness to learn new skills. The colour systems covers PE teaching lesson plans and schemes of work from Reception through KS1 and KS2. It is useful to know where pupils fair against others their age, as was highlighted in the previous national curriculum, but we value an approach that is more child centred.
Instead of assuming all children of the same age have the same physical education experience we encourage teachers to use the PE schemes of work and lesson plans in a way that suits their individual class. Each colour has a designated year group as guidelines for teachers to use as a starting point when selecting a unit for their class.
