PE is taught through the physical, focusing on developing physical competency and a movement vocabulary of agility, balance and coordination (ABCs) while making sure learners understand the importance of developing good healthy lifestyle behaviours (e.g. sleep, nutrition, hydration, physical activity). It is also about providing situations where learners can challenge and develop their personal and life skills (for example resilience, empathy and leadership).
We would like teachers and parents/carers to consider setting fun challenges and PE activities that enable young people to plan, do and review. General physical activity can also provide valuable, fun breaks in the day and support wider learning.
To support this, the Youth Sport Trust, in partnership with our key partner, Complete PE have created some easy to follow activity cards and will be sharing these via social media to support parents/carers in bringing the ideas to life. These activities can be completed within your home environments (inside and outside in the garden) – and can be adapted to suit a range of ages and abilities.
Please adapt these activities to suit the needs of your young people and consider the wider skills each activity is aimed to develop.
There's also a growing range of additional resources available across the four key sections outlined below. Thank you to all of our partners for their collaboration with this concept. We hope that you find the activities and resources useful when planning activities for your young people.
