#ThisIsPE Activity Cards

Each #ThisIsPE secondary PE activity comes with a downloadable learning card, which outlines what space and equipment is needed; learning outcomes, both physical and personal; guidance in how to adapt the activity to make it harder and easier and some questions to consider whilst the activities are being done. All of the activities below are specifically designed for special schools. For a full list of #ThisIsPE activities please click here.

Lyfta lesson plans

A collaboration between Lyfta and the Youth Sport Trust along with Lead Inclusion Schools across the country has led to the creation of a new guide that uniquely connects PE, school sport and health and wellbeing together through immersive storyworlds, aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

The aim of this collaboration is to provide practitioners with the opportunity to engage young people in their schools that may not have previously accessed school sport, and develop confidence to access new opportunities, with the long-term outcome of increasing take up in physical activity.

The newly developed guide contains 19 lesson plan ideas and 4 assembly suggestions.

TOP Sportsability

TOP Sportsability is a unique inclusive activities programme developed by the Youth Sport Trust in partnership with National Governing Bodies of Sport. It can be utilised by schools to help engage young disabled people in Physical Education, school sport, and support their first step into the School Games. This is a free online resource aimed at schools. It consists of video clips and downloadable content showing ideas and strategies around the inclusion of young disabled people in physical activity.

Within the TOP Sportsability resource there is a module called Elements. Elements is a resource for young people with profound and multiple learning difficulties. The resource follows four themes which are based on national curriculum PE areas of activity that have been adapted to suit the needs of your child. It has now also been adapted for parents and carers in a home environment to support their young people to be active at home.

PE at Home

PE at Home was created for families, parents and young people as a way of developing their PE skills in a home environment or in small groups at school. Each resource is aimed at a different Key stage, from Early Years all the way up to KS4, enabling families with children in different year groups to be working on the same activity at the same time but at their own level. Each set of cards covers different areas of the PE National Curriculum and comes with additional cross curricular tasks which are mapped against what children in this age group should be learning in school.

PE at Home has been developed by three PE professionals; Angela Whitehouse, Sarah Lay and Helen Tonks. They are passionate about delivering high quality opportunities to young people to continue their PE journeys, even in these difficult times. New resource cards are released every Friday and you can download them free from the School Games website. You can also keep up to date with what PE at Home is doing on Twitter and feel free to share any feedback that you have.
