KS2 PE & Science Lesson Plan – Help Kids Get Fit with Five-a-Day Exercises

What's included?

Two-page PDF lesson plan

Key Stage

KS2

Age

Years 3-6

Subjects

Children are full of life and most enjoy being active, but they may be unaware of why movement is beneficial or what is actually happening to their bodies as they exercise.

The aim of this cross-curricular lesson is to learn about parts of the body and what happens to them when we exercise, linking PE to science.

Set up mini circuits involving five different activities and do a 20 second burst at each before rotating.

Use information cards to demonstrate the muscle groups being work during each exercise.

What they’ll learn

  • What the body needs when under increased physical activity
  • Which parts of the body are working during different activities
  • How physical activity links to science
