Women’s Euro 2022 – PE lesson plan

What's included?

Two-page lesson plan PDF

Key Stage



Years 3-6



With the England women’s football team having just made history at the UEFA Women’s European Championships, now is a great time to look at how we can use the beautiful game to inspire writing. In this diary activity, we think about the life of a footballer including the health, fitness and mental preparation required ahead of a big game. Just what do pupils think it was like for Leah Williamson as she captained England’s women to victory? And can they put themselves in her and her teammates’ boots?

What they’ll learn

  • To reflect on the concepts of diet, fitness and mental health in sport
  • Strategies for describing and contrasting motion
  • To write emotively and engagingly, in first person
  • About the UEFA Women’s European Football Championships

Adam Jevons-Newman is the Key Stage 2 and curriculum leader at Farmilo Primary School and Nursery and a freelance curriculum consultant and writer.
