published on 23th December, 2022

No doubt you will, like most schools, have finished for Christmas last week. But we just wanted to say a BIG thank you to everyone who has used our PE lesson plans this year… And Merry Christmas from PE Planning!

2022 has been a much-welcomed return to normality for the UK, and for the world. Well, the closest we’ve been to anything like ‘normal’ in over two years! Schools have still faced some challenges, however, and we hope that by providing an easier way to deliver great PE lessons, our team and our website has gone some way to help you.

The best PE resources of 2022

Alongside our PE lesson plans, PE Planning has provided you with free guidance, ideas and resources through 2022. Please allow us to take you through what we think are the best PE resources posted on this blog through the year!

School events calendar

Our blog post about the school events calendar has been one of our most popular blog posts this year. As well as giving some pointers on pulling together the best, most suitable events to celebrate with your class, its also included some particularly-useful events. For example, World Book Day and the World Cup were listed, with reasons why your class may want to celebrate these events.

And in our blog post, we list our Top 5 Year 1 PE Games that can be delivered with no equipment. Given that Ofsted publications have suggested that children best develop their fundamental movement skills between 3 and 8 years old… It’s vital that you have our lesson ideas in our back pocket – should you ever need them!
