What's this for?

Developed with teachers, this PE lesson outlines the Train Like A Jedi moves, helping young people to improve their physical skills such as balance, agility and co-ordination, and inspiring them to be active beyond the lesson.

Pupils will love involving themselves in the Star WarsTM story and will become more physically active as they learn the ways of the Jedi.

Learning objectives

After using this resource pupils should be able to:

  • Confidently perform a range of movement patterns.
  • Create their own sequence of movements individually or with others.



Early Years

Pupils will have the opportunity to:

  • Develop their co-ordination, control and movement.
  • Understand the importance of physical activity.

"As a teacher it's always useful to have an exciting resource ready-made for you! I think PE is one of the areas that teachers are less confident in, so an engaging scheme like this is very welcome in our school."

Carla Smith, Teacher, Clerkenwell Parochial CE Primary School
