Primary PE lesson plans

  • Reception Physical Literacy Unit 2
  • Year 3 Handball
  • Intermediate Swimming
  • Year 5 OAA
  • Year 6 Dance

Today we are sharing Reception and year 5 gymnastics, year 1 invasion games, year 3 athletic activity and year 4 tag rugby.


At the PE Hub we are passionate about gymnastics and that’s why we’ve brought you 2 units for every year group!  For the next month you can feast your eyes on both reception and year 5 gymnastics lessons.

Year 1 Attack defend compete – Invasion games

Attack defend compete is our name for invasion games.  These units taught at Key Stage 1 prepare pupils for the skills they will need to play in competitive games at Key Stage 2.  We have 2 units of attack, defend, compete so is ideal to teach across an entire term.


Year 3 Athletics lesson plans

Once pupils hit Key Stage 2 they are expected to start specialising in recognised sports and activities such as athletics.  Our year 3 lesson aim to build on pupils previous learning from Run, Jump, throw units at Key Stage 1.


Year 4 Tag Rugby lesson plans

Tag rugby is increasing in popularity and we therefore it was essential to include it at every year of Key Stage 2.  All our planning works in line with the school games, so you can be certain that your pupils will know all the correct rules and tactics to take their game to the next level.

We change our sample PE lesson plans once a month, you can follow our blog and stay updated via our Facebook page—or subscribe to one of our PE lesson plan services today!
