Hand-picked primary sports resources to get pupils active this summer

As summertime approaches, it’s time to get active and make the most of the sunshine while it’s here. Help your class top up their vitamin D with this specially selected collection of lesson plans, activity cards and games covering some of the most popular seasonal sports. So why not grab a bat, pick up a ball or get running this term?

Outdoor activities

When we’re lucky enough to have a sunny day, get outside and warm up your pupils with this selection of outdoor game lesson plans.

Introduce your class to seven different field disciplines in athletics using these handy leaflets, containing diagrams, tips and explanations of best practice.  Or, with Wimbledon looming, inspire the future Andy Murray with this set of differentiated tennis activity cards.

Alternatively, get your KS2 class excited about the classic summer sport of rounders and challenge them to improve their technique with these batting cards*.

Indoor activities

It wouldn’t be a British summer time without a few rainy days, but activities don’t have to cease just because of bad weather. When it’s wet outside, try keeping your budding athletes entertained with these indoor athletics lesson plans.

For older pupils, get them working in teams with this six-lesson benchball unit* or introduce them to some classic gymnastic techniques with these teaching cards, which give students a full outline of how to perform each move.

And, if you’re looking for a bit of variety in your lessons, why not get your younger classes running, jumping and crocodile curling with this fun circuit training plan
