Liverpool star joins winning pupils from a school in London to produce PL Primary Stars resources

Three pupils from Eversley Primary School in London have had their PE lesson turned into FIFA 19-style teaching resources with the help of Liverpool defender Joe Gomez and EA SPORTS.

Evie, Daisy and Sumpeng won a national competition to create and design the Ultimate PE Lesson, a national competition run by the Premier League Primary Stars programme.

As part of their prize, the trio took to the studio and, together with Reds star Gomez, donned special suits to bring the lesson to life using motion-capture technology, which creates the movements of players in games such as FIFA 19.

"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," said Gomez.

Life lessons

"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."

The competition tasked schoolchildren to come up with lessons that were fun, demonstrated best practice for different movements and identified key learning points for pupils and teachers.

And the winning netball-themed lesson, which included drills for throwing, catching, marking and intercepting, has been broken down into bite-size resources that can be downloaded from the PL Primary Stars website.

"Sport is really important in our school and it was such a brilliant opportunity for the girls to have this experience," said Eversley Primary Year 6 teacher, Juliette Douglas-Saul. "Their lesson was amazing and well thought through."
