Learning objectives

  • Understand the importance of physical activity so they can lead healthy, active lifestyles – both now and as they grow up
  • Develop a positive attitude towards their health by understanding that healthier eating and physical activity can be fun

In the classroom

Be inspired by these PE activities to engage your class, parents and the whole school. All of these games are suitable for outdoor play, but can be adapted for indoors during wet play.

This resource includes:

  • Ideas for the whole school
  • Activities for your class
  • Follow-up ideas and extensions
  • Ideas to engage parents

The activities are accessible and easy to follow. There is also a wide selection to suit abilities and preference.

Get the whole school involved

If you’re holding a whole-school event, create a display of the day in the entrance hall. Ask each pupil to draw a small picture and write a sentence about their favourite activity and why they liked it. Then stick the children's pictures on a very large piece of paper.
