Premier League Primary Stars launches new motion capture PE clips
- Premier League Primary Stars is the Premier League’s most ambitious community programme to date, providing free curriculum-linked teaching resources for girls and boys aged 5-11 in more than 12,000 schools across England and Wales
- Primary schools can now develop pupils’ key PE skills with the use of brand new motion capture clips featuring Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford
- The new learning materials were developed using the same motion capture technology used to generate the series of FIFA video games from EA SPORTS
Premier League Primary Stars has launched brand-new motion capture PE clips for all girls and boys aged 5-11 in primary schools across England and Wales.
The motion capture clips were developed with the same motion capture technology used to generate the series of FIFA video games and were developed in conjunction with EA SPORTS, proud supporters of the Premier League Primary Stars programme.
With the new learning materials, teachers can take pupils step-by-step through a range of movements, emphasising key learning points for pupils and teachers. The short clips are designed to support the programme’s Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 PE packs
Teachers registered to Premier League Primary Stars can now explore the clips and
challenge their pupils to try out the moves and develop their technique.
To help develop the clips, we gave two lucky Premier League Primary Stars pupils the opportunity to take part and star in our motion capture session – and they were joined by Manchester United’s striker Marcus Rashford, who demonstrated best practice movements for pupils to follow.
For a behind-the-scenes look, watch our video of the motion capture session with Marcus and find out how the new clips were created.
Premier League Primary Stars is a national curriculum-linked education programme for girls and boys aged 5-11, using the appeal of the Premier League and professional football clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.
