Key Stage 2 Boot Camp Indoor PE Fitness Circuit

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!
