Sample PE Lesson Plans – 9

For the past month you’ve been able to access for free on The PE Hub as sample plans the following:

PE Primary Plans

  • Reception – Body Management
  • Year 2 – Hit, Catch, Run (striking & fielding skills)
  • Year 4 – Athletics
  • Year 5 – Rounders
  • Beginners – Swimming

Today we are sharing Reception dance, year 2 run, jump, throw, year 3 badminton, year 4 tag rugby and year 6 dance.

Reception Dance Lesson Plans

At the PE Hub, we are passionate about dance as part of the PE curriculum.  We have two units of dance for every year group!  The reception dance lesson plans show activities for creating patterns. The lesson includes the teaching of traditional dance movements such as promenading with a partner. For the next month, you can feast your eyes on both reception and year 6 dance PE lessons plans.

Year 6 Dance Lesson Plan

The year 6 dance lesson plan we have shared shows a snapshot of our west side story themed unit of work.  In this plan, year 6 explore more complex themes such as live aural setting. Furthermore, teachers have an extensive range of video resources at their disposal.  See one of our dance teaching videos below.

Year 2 Run jump throw

Run jump throw is our name for athletic activity at Key Stage 1.  These units taught at Key Stage 1 prepare pupils for the skills they will need to participate in athletics at Key Stage 2.  We have 2 units of run, jump, throw for both years 1 and 2 therefore is ideal to teach across an entire term.

Year 3 Badminton Lesson Plan

Once pupils hit Key Stage 2 they are expected to start specialising in recognised sports and activities such as badminton.  Our year 3 lesson aims to build on pupils prior learning from send and return (net-wall games) during Key Stage 1 PE.  Badminton is a brand new sport to The PE Hub, and we will be rolling out units across key stage 2.

Year 4 Tag Rugby Lesson Plan

Tag rugby is increasing in popularity and so we knew it was essential to include it for every year of Key Stage 2.  All our planning works in line with the school games.  For that reason, you can be sure that your pupils will know all the correct rules and tactics.  Competition between self and other features in our Tag Rugby PE lesson plans, this helps prepare pupils for extracurricular activities.

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!
