Learning Themes


Beyond the Physical Learning Themes are specially-designed units of work linked to the PE National Curriculum. We have used our experience of working with teachers and children to create easy-to-use, friendly resources for planning and delivering high-quality PE. Each Learning Theme is centred around three key words, which are the success criteria for the unit. We accompany each of the words with a page of teacher's notes and a video showing the lesson in action.
