Ideas for Safe Distance PE lessons

Complete P.E.
Complete P.E. have created bespoke sequences of learning for Foundation, Year 1 and Year 6 to ensure pupils are engaged in learning that is fun, safe and with a whole child focus. These sequences of learning are adapted lessons that enable pupils to experience a variety of contexts; athletics, games, health and wellbeing, and locomotion whilst remaining a safe distance apart and not sharing equipment*. To access these lesson plans please contact Complete P.E. who are happy to give you free access to their resources for a limited time.

*All activities should follow Government Guidelines in response to Covid-19 and afPE safe practice guidelines.
