On Your Marks resource
The On Your Marks! resource contains 11 lesson plans and six extra-curricular activities for pupils aged 7 to 11. It has been designed by United Kingdom Athletics (UKA) and England Athletics (EA), in partnership with all Home Country athletics federations, to be used in schools across the UK.
Hundreds of thousands of people across the UK are involved in athletics. Athletics is one of the most exciting, diverse and vibrant sports there is. The range of disciplines across the track, field, road and off-road provides an incredible diversity of events for different people with different skills and abilities. Athletics really does offer something for everyone.
This pack and the set of resources included in it is designed to place running, jumping and throwing at the heart of school education for 7 to 11 year-old-pupils. It uses a broad spectrum of the curriculum to focus on areas of athletics that can be taught in and out of the classroom. The pack also conforms to curriculum standards for England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
