PE Learning Cards

These variations of three of our PE activity cards aim to support self and peer to peer assessment, reflecting on the social, emotional and cognitive development of pupils through their physical experiences. The cards can be printed and laminated for repeated use (wipeable between lessons and different class bubbles). The cards are purposely not phase specific, so as to be facilitated across different ages, in line with the needs of your pupils.

There are many more of these learner cards, all free of charge for teachers and schools, on the Complete PE website.
