Three Year 6 pupils from Eversley Primary School in Enfield have been crowned the winners of the Premier League Primary Stars ‘Ultimate PE Lesson’ competition run with EA SPORTS.
Capitalising on the popularity of the motion capture PE resources created by EA SPORTS last season, the competition challenged pupils aged 8-11 (Key Stage 2) to create the ‘Ultimate PE lesson.’ The lesson had to be fun, demonstrate best practice for different movements, and identify key learning points for pupils and teachers.
Evie, Daisy and Sumpeng, from Eversley Primary School designed a netball-inspired lesson covering throwing, catching, marking and intercepting. The winning trio headed to Liverpool to film their lesson alongside Liverpool and England star Joe Gomez, using the same motion capture technology used to create the movements of players in games such as FIFA 19.
Year 6 teacher, Juliette Dougglas-Saul from Eversley Primary School said:
“Sport is really important in our school and it was such a brilliant opportunity for the girls to have this experience.”
Liverpool footballer Joe Gomez said:
“PE was my favourite lesson at school and if I wasn’t a footballer I would have liked to be a PE teacher, so to be involved in the programme is great. PE teaches so many important skills, not just physical, but also life lessons like teamwork. Demonstrating those skills using in-game FIFA characters is a great way of engaging young kids.”
Nick Perchard, Head of Community at the Premier League, said:
“The free online Premier League Primary Stars programme resources are created to inspire young people to have fun while they learn. Having EA SPORTS support some of the PE resource development using their innovative technology has meant we can enhance their learning in an exciting and engaging way.”
The new ‘Ultimate PE lesson’ resource is now available for teachers to access for free online via the Premier League Primary Stars website. Premier League Primary Stars provides fun, free, and easy-to-use curriculum-linked teaching resources for primary schools across England and Wales with the goal of inspiring children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.
