Free Home Learning Resources - Secondary

YST Free Home Learning Resources - Secondary
#ThisIsPE secondary is designed to support teachers and parents/carers with secondary aged children in signposting to appropriate physical education content which will enable pupils to continue their development within national curriculum PE at home during the school closures.

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.

#ThisIsPE is a collaborative project with Yorkshire Sport Foundation (YSF) and the Association for PE, and endorsed by the Department for Education as a home school resource. While YSF provide content for the primary school children here at YST we're focussing on secondary schools with a series of short videos. We are also working with Special Olympics GB to ensure we have inclusive content.

All activities can be done in and around the home and can be carried out with objects you can find around the house. All videos have been filmed by current secondary PE teachers who are part of the Youth Sport Trust Secondary PE CatalYST network.

Did you know that we offer a large range of innovative and competitively priced resources and CPD to complement your PE offer and promote wellbeing? Check out our full listing.
