Premier League Primary Stars kick off motion capture clips

Brand new clips featuring Man Utd and England star, Marcus Rashford, can now be used by primary schools to help develop key PE skills

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 clips were developed with the same motion capture technology used to generate FIFA video games and were developed in conjunction with EA SPORTS.

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.

To help develop the clips, two Premier League Primary Stars pupils were given the opportunity to take part and star in a motion capture session, where they were joined by Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford, who demonstrated best practice movements to follow.
