120 Non Contact Activities for Physical Education across the Primary School

This resource has been developed to support the teaching of Physical Education across the primary school. Activities are generic and can be used to support learning in any strand. The activities are designed to be non contact in nature.

In addition to promoting healthy growth and development, studies show that positive movement experiences explored during physical education lessons enhance children’s ability to concentrate and maintain focus, help to relieve stress and anxiety, and encourage a lifelong love of physical activity. Physical Education has the ability to ensure that children have fun at school and establish a sense of connection with their classmates.
