Here is everything you need to create a really fun fitness circuit in a small space. An ideal resource of those wet PE lessons when all you have is the hall available. This resource includes an individual pupil record sheet for a circuit of activities I’ve called the 'Boot Camp’ Circuit. It includes 9 different stations, each has a description of the activity and an equipment list. We have a small hall and this can be set out with limited space. I’ve included a floor plan. This could cater for up to 36 pupils with 2 pairs of pupils completing each of the 9 activities one at a time! I’ve also added picture cards which can be put at each station, and to encourage reading skills they each contain a brief description of each activity. These activities can be changed to suit the equipment you have at your disposal. As a free download this had over 37,000 downloads and has been updated and is a ‘ready-to-go’ resource. Enjoy!

This booklet also contains an additional story assessing the 24 homophones, which many Year 5 and 6 pupils still struggle to use correctly in their writing. Story titles are imaginative and include; 'Vanessa and the Robot Dog,' 'The Story of the Richest Girl in the World, 'Marvo, Crusty and the Incredible Barrel Bet,' and 'Brave Sir John and the Smell of Fear.' to name but a few. This 60 page book is an essential resource for Year 5 and 6 teachers preparing for SATs and also useful for teachers in years 7 and 8 completing catch up programmes.
