Year 5/6 Athletics Scheme of Work
This comprehensive 63 page e-book PDF package contains six detailed lesson plans for teaching an Athletics unit of work to Year 5/6 students in a Primary/Elementary School setting.
Each lesson plan directs you to some carefully explained game cards that show you how an activity is setup, how it is played, how it can be made easier/harder to extend or scaffold your students and what equipment you will need to play it. Furthermore, it tells you what the key teaching points are for that particular activity! In addition to that, there are accompanying posters for identifying key words across the different skills and teaching point checklists so the students can self and peer assess!
As with all PE Umbrella Schemes of work, each activity has suggestions for an ‘Umbrella Focus’ guiding you in how it links to the development of the Physical (Blue Umbrella), Cognitive (Green Umbrella), Social (Red Umbrella) and Affective (Purple Umbrella) domain. Using this framework, the activities and sessions have great longevity as the Learning objective can be focused around the development within a different domain of learning each time you use it or you can simply touch upon multiple within a lesson.
Every session in this pack is focused on the Blue Umbrella of Physical Development. However, There is a lesson plan template you can use to piece together your own Athletics learning journey for your class if you don’t want to follow the pre set sessions. The areas covered in this scheme of work include:
- Jumping for distance
- Jumping for height
- Running (Sprinting)
- Throwing (Pull throw and Push throw)
