Lancashire School PE resources and timetable

Lancashire School Games Organisers Team, Active Lancashire and the Lancashire PE team have developed a PE, school sport and physical activity resource and timetable. Please use the links below to access the timetable. The resource is centred around 4 key themes: Move, Learn, Challenge and Play.

Additional resources and activities:


Fleetwood Town FC are encouraging children to get in touch with an older relative, friend or neighbour, who may be isolated during this time.


We would like to support them by encouraging parents and carers to get involved in the initiative on Twitter by sharing letters with @FTFCCommunity and the Premier League @PLCommunities.

One way you can get involved is to write a letter for one of Fleetwood Town's former players. You could maybe ask them some questions regarding their career.

Byker Primary School has set up a YouTube P.E channel to give their children some sort of Physical Activity that they could participate in the afternoon whilst home learning. This would replicate their P.E lessons that they would have at school and provide them with the same structure. They have kindly shared it with us and other schools. Link:


You could do P.E with Joe Wicks every morning at 9am and then go on Byker's channel at 1pm to do another workout/challenge which is fantastic! There are 3 uploads in a week , Mondays, Wednesdays and Friday at 1pm which the children can access.


Blue Moose Dance Company Wyre and Fylde Dance Challenge To keep us moving and grooving whether that be at home, or at school, the Blue Moose Dance Company is hosting a Wyre & Fylde Dance Challenge to celebrate the spectacular dance that has been happening in Schools across Wyre & Fylde! They are asking you to take part in challenges below:


Follow or adapt the PE plan to make sure you are getting regular exercise. Add in your own activities and mix things up to make it as fun as possible! 


Fleetwood Town FC Resource Packs


Fleetwood Town FC have very kindly shared their amazing resource packs with schools for pupils (and parent-carers!) to use at home.

Great Arley would like to give a big thank you to the PE department staff at Fleetwood Town who have put these excellent resources together!

FTFC are going to be putting daily challenges for children on their social media platforms for children to complete at home too. To see these you can follow them on:

Twitter: @FTFCCommunity
Facebook: @FleetwoodTownCommunityTrust

FTFC ask that parents and carers tag them and  #PLPrimaryStars if you video your challenges as they are also going to be running competitions!

Activities you could do with your child:

The Body Coach Joe Wicks has announced he will be holding live daily PE lessons for kids to help keep children fit and healthy while they are not at school during the coronavirus pandemic.

Joe said: "I'm going to do a live workout called 'PE With Joe' on my YouTube channel The Body CoachTV" starting Monday at 9am and will be held ever weekday,

Joe said he was going to become the "nation's PE teacher". The 30 minute workout sessions are aimed at "little kids right up to secondary school".


If school is closed but your child does not need to self-isolate you may consider ….

Some sort of physical activity. The Chief Medical Officers guidelines for young people is to be active for at least 60 minutes a day. Examples of moderate intensity activities include, walking, playing outside in a park, riding a scooter, cycling, ball games etc. Reduce the time spent sitting or lying down and break up long periods of not moving with some activity. Aim to spread activity throughout the day. All activities should make you breathe faster and feel warmer, above all make it fun and
something the children enjoy.

Create opportunities for children to play in outdoor spaces – gardens, backyards (not visiting parks or public places.) Games which involve throwing and catching, (soft items from indoors such as sponges, scarves, balloons, etc. bubbles using washing up liquid and wire to make a simple bubble blower, skipping, jumping, hopscotch, etc.

Other activities you could do with your child:
Take part in our colouring competition by downloading a colouring sheet and designing a football kit. These can be emailed to or returned when the school re-opens. Prizes will be given for the most creative.
