PE Homework - Active Every Day

This resource has been developed by primary teachers to bring your child’s Physical Education experience home. The PE Homework – Active Every Day activities are designed to complement the activities that your child is learning in school.

How to use this resource

This resource provides a selection of activities that your child can choose from, based on the strand that they are exploring in their Physical Education class. The activities in this resource are differentiated across three levels - Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3.

  • Level 1 is generally aligned to the infant classes,
  • Level 2 is generally aligned to 1st, 2nd or 3rd classes,
  • Level 3 is generally aligned to 4th, 5th or 6th classes.

Select the activities that best suit the needs and abilities of your child. Children can move up or down through the levels if they wish. If there is more than one child in the household, they can help each other with their PE homework! The activities outlined in this resource can be completed inside the home or outside in whatever space is available to the child. All activities can be completed individually by the child, or they can be adapted to include family members, neighbours or friends. Remember to warm-up before you start! Scroll down to find some fun warm-up and cool-down activities. Children can track their progress using the PE Homework charts below, or document their efforts in a PE journal.

This resource pack is also available in Irish.

Reflective Templates

This resource invites your child to share what they have learned at school with their family members at home. Encourage your child to show you what they have learned, and to talk about their PE experiences. Your child may have a PE journal, or copybook. Invite your child to use their PE journal to reflect on their learning by

  • writing about or drawing what they did in PE or what activity they completed for homework,
  • setting movement goals and learning targets,
  • keeping physical activity records or
  • creating new games using the skills they are developing in PE.

Download or print the following reflective templates to help your child to reflect on their progress with their PE homework. Each one is available at 3 levels, select the template that best suits your child’s needs.
