The Ultimate PE Lesson competition

Our competition aimed to inspire and challenge Key Stage 2 pupils to create an amazing PE lesson that they think other children will love.

This competition is now closed. Thank you to all those who entered. The winning and runner-up schools have been contacted.

Premier League Primary Stars asked children to create their Ultimate PE lesson with EA SPORTS. We challenged pupils to get creative and come up with a lesson which they think other children will love. With a bit of help from a Premier League footballer, the winning group will have the opportunity to create their lesson using motion capture technology – the same technology used to create the movements of players in games such as FIFA 19!


We asked pupils to:

• work in a group of 4-6 to plan their Ultimate PE Lesson
• discuss their ideas as a team
• decide on the learning outcome and skills they would like their lesson to focus on
• use the planning sheet in the supporting resource pack to draft and try out these ideas
• test out the lesson on classmates, family and friends to make sure it's the best it can be
• write their final lesson plan on the entry sheet with a sketch to show us what it looks like in action!

Final lesson plans needed to appeal to other pupils aged 7-11. When planning their lesson, groups will need to consider things such as:

• equipment and space available
• ways to make their lesson more or less challenging
• creativity and originality
• how their lesson will support at least one of the Premier League Primary Stars values:

Be ambitious – work hard and never give up on their goals
Be inspiring – set a great example to others
Be connected – work well with others and in a team
Be fair – treat people equally and think of others


Lessons were judged by a panel of PE experts who were looking for the following:

• A clear focus for the lesson (learning outcome)
• Creativity and originality
• Simple but fun ideas – is the lesson easy for everyone to understand?
• Ways to include everybody – is it clear how the lesson can be made easier or harder?
• Appeal – will it appeal to other 7-11 year olds?

Entries weren't judged on their drawing skills, the judges were looking for the most creative entry.
