The must-have book for teaching primary PE, with over 100 inclusive and engaging games for all abilities.

Including a wealth of age-appropriate, easy-to-follow activities for teaching physical education at Key Stages 1 and 2, this book is perfect for teachers looking for inspiration and advice on delivering the very best PE lessons. Structured around a full school year, there is a mixture of indoor and outdoor ideas to suit a range of spaces and equipment, all tried and tested by teachers with mixed-ability classes. From ‘Working together’ in September to ‘Competing as an individual’ in July, each chapter addresses a different month and theme to structure your practice and make each lesson meaningful.

A Year of Primary PE features 110 lesson plans, with clear instructions for setting up and carrying out the activities, full-colour photographs of the games in action, and advice to develop teachers’ skills and pedagogy. Not only does this book support a child’s physical development and coordination, but it also provides countless opportunities to learn how to be fair, responsible, courageous and kind. Fully aligned to the National Curriculum, this is the ideal resource to deliver outstanding differentiated PE lessons centred around inclusivity, engagement, and holistic learning.

‘This is an interactive book of wonders. Teachers can play with the wide range of activities, pedagogical tools and research links to create inclusive, active and meaningful learning moments in PE.’

-Dr Julie Pearson, Course Lead for Primary PGCE with a Specialism in PE, St Mary’s University.
