Primary PE lesson plans

Today we are sharing our sample primary PE lesson plans in a new way; to celebrate the start of Wimbledon this week we are sharing 5 tennis lesson plans across the range of year groups.

Year 2 – Send and Return

Send and return is our name for Net/Wall games.  At Key Stage 1 we focus on children developing the fundamental skills to specialise in specific sports.  During ‘send and return’ we explore skills such as tracking a ball in flight, sending an object over a net and using hands and racquets to control objects in flight.  We’ve shared lesson 5 from Unit 1 which introduces the proper way to grip a tennis racquet and fun games to develop racquet control.

Year 3 Tennis Lesson Plan

We’ve made lesson 4 available which covers approaching a ball on the forehand to return.  This can be done using a racquet or simply the hand if the pupil is still developing their hand-eye coordination.

Year 4 Tennis Lesson Plan

We’ve shared Year 4 lesson 5 in which pupils get to work together to attempt to play as a pair.  Pupils are encouraged to use communication skills to work together and to try and improve their play.

Year 5 Tennis Lesson Plan

As our tennis units progress they become more sophisticated looking at the skills needed to perform specific shots.  In Year 5 lesson 2 pupils practise the steps required to complete a volley shot and then work with a partner to apply this skill in a simple activity.

Year 6 Tennis Lesson Plan

By now children should have received a good grounding in the basics of tennis and be looking to use their knowledge to apply more complex tactics in game situations.  Lesson 1 is an Assessment for Learning lesson where pupils are encouraged not only to score points but to work with a partner to defend.

Recent example lesson plans

Today we are sharing example lesson plans for physical education that include reception ‘Cooperate & solve problems’, Year 3 outdoor education, Year 1 gymnastics, Year 5 cricket and beginners swimming.

Reception cooperate and solve problems

Our latest resource for reception and key stage 1 is ‘cooperate and solve problems.  This scheme of work introduces the idea of pupils learning self-reliance.  It also guides children in working effectively together to complete tasks through which they improve communication.

Swimming for beginners

Our swimming lesson plans are not linked to a specific year group; we know children’s experiences of swimming vary widely.  We have 3 units available, beginner, intermediate and advanced.  Today we’re sharing a beginners swimming lesson plan to show you the level of expectation needed to get none swimmers, swimming.  It is gratifying to take a pupil who cannot swim and get them confidently swimming widths and lengths.  Lesson 4 looks at pupils’ gaining confidence by putting their face in the water.

Year 3 Outdoor and adventurous activities (OAA)

We make teaching outdoor education simple!  We’ve created all the scorecards, control points, pictures, or map icons you could ever need. Just print and laminate and you’re set to go!  Check out our Year 3 lesson 5 which focuses on working well together and being considerate of others.  OAA doesn’t mean children are not raising their heart rates; all our outdoor education lesson gets the blood pumping; working both mind and body!

Year 1 Gymnastics

At the PE Hub, we are passionate about gymnastics, and that’s why we’ve brought you two units for every year group!  For the next month, you have access to year 1 gymnastics unit 1.  In this lesson, children are supported to explore and demonstrate shape in their work and use tension to improve their performance.

Year 5 Cricket

We introduce cricket in Year 3, based around the school games format, so children develop gameplay skill and the capacity to engage in competition.  Lesson 2 for Year 5 pupils focuses on catching and throwing for accuracy.  The purpose of developing this accuracy is to attempt to run batters out during a modified game.
