Welcome to Val Sabin Publications & Training
Val Sabin teaching manuals offer something for everyone who teaches physical education and physical development including Early Years / Foundation Stage practitioners, in schools, nurseries, playgroups, childminders or parents, Key Stage 1 and 2 Primary School teachers, teaching assistants, lunchtime supervisors and specialist Physical Education teachers at Key Stages 3 and 4. Other aspects of Primary School teaching that have links to Physical Education - Storytelling in English and activities for Special Needs.
The teaching manuals are the most comprehensive and user-friendly and provide an informative teaching guide, clear long-term planning, medium-term planning in the form of unit frameworks (complete with learning objectives and expected learning outcomes in line with National Curriculum and QCA guidelines) and short term planning in the detailed "how to do it" PE Lesson Plans. Each complete curriculum scheme of work for Gymnastics, Games, Dance and Athletics is progressive and developmental in structure and every unit within the scheme has references to the substantial skill development / extension / challenge section at the rear of the manuals, which enable the successful inclusion of all children.
Why spend months of valuable time writing your own schemes of work and lesson plans and trying to find relevant pieces of music when appropriate eg: for Gym, Dance and Action Kids Early Years Foundation Stage when these have already been produced by a top PE specialist and have been tried, tested and proven to work in thousands of schools all over the UK!
Curriculum materials are extensive and include Action Kids for Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and 2 lesson plans for Gymnastics, Games, Dance and Athletics, Transitions from Key Stage 2-3 for Gym, Games and Dance. Key Stage 3 and 4 lesson plans and music for Gymnastics and Dance, and our daily planner programme Activate for children aged 4-13 which can be used in the classroom
Use the menubar at the top of the site to access the manuals for your subject. Within each manual area there are sections on main information, additional information, table of contents and lesson plans or sample material. All the information you will need to make your purchasing decision. In the lesson plan section you will also find samples of the music (where relevant).
