Socially Distanced PE and Outdoor Games – ideas, progressions and safe pupil interaction

Socially Distanced PE and Outdoor Games – ideas, progressions and safe pupil interaction

We return with a second video to expand upon our Socially Distanced PE training ideas.

In this video we’re looking at outdoor games you can play to enable communication and safe interaction between participants in your Primary School PE Lessons and at break times.

We’ve made it easier to find what you’re looking for by adding in a “menu” at the bottom of this guide.

Both staff members (Isobel and Zoe) were not delivering sessions in schools at the time of this video being made. They will not be back in schools for at least the next 14 days as we prioritise safety.

All social distancing guidelines were followed whilst they were on site and both staff only used the outdoor area whilst on school premises to avoid any cross contamination.

Once again it is very important to follow your schools current policy on a bubbles use of an area and also around the use of any equipment in PE and following the guidelines that your School has put in place for cleaning.

Here is the “menu” for our video;


0:54 – Mr Wolf, Granny Footsteps, Hot Chocolate

4:14 – Rock Paper Scissors Fitness Teacher Lead
6:06 – Progression 1 Pupil v Pupil and Teacher setting the fitness forfiet
8:00 – Progression 2 Pupil v Pupil with pupils setting the fitness forfiets and how to safely switch partners

15:20 – How to challenge more able Learners and keep the activity competitive for those who find Athletics Running Races more challenging
