Today we are sharing Reception physical literacy, intermediate swimming lesson plans, year 3 handball and year 5 outdoor and adventurous activities (OAA)

Intermediate – Swimming lesson plans

With the end of the summer term on the horizon it’s a good time to work with those year 6 pupils who have not yet achieved the 25m swimming target.  It is required that schools now report on their numbers of pupils swimming 25m.  Our swimming lesson plans support teachers to deliver topup swim to those pupils still falling short of their 25m badge.

Reception – Physical Literacy

Although there is no requirement for schools to offer official ‘PE’ lessons in Reception, it can be a great opportunity to introduce pupils physical activity in a more formal way, preparing them for Key Stage 1 learning.  We cover 3 activity areas only The PE Hub, Physical Literacy, Gymnastics and Dance which support the Early Years framework for Physical Development.

Year 3 – Handball lesson plans

With all Handball units now complete of the PE Hub, here’s a sneak peak and year 3 handball, our introductory unit to the sport.  The handball scheme of work and lesson plans cover all the basics to get your class started with this exciting sport.

Year 5 – Outdoor Education lesson plans

During the editing process of writing year 5 outdoor and adventurous activities (OAA) lesson plan Sammy said her particular favorite was lesson 4;  Therefore, we have shared this with you.  Finally, OAA is now complete for all Key Stage 2 year groups.
