Three PE home learning projects for KS3 students, one project per year group for 7, 8 and 9. The projects can be done completely independently, ideal for remote learning or as homework. They are set up to last for 16 weeks/tasks, with each task covering a different topic. As well as being used for remote learning it can also be set as homework tasks. Each task can be separated and assigned individually, or set as one project that students can work through over a long period of time.
All tasks are fully resourced where necessary, and marking criteria are included on each task so that students can see exactly what they need to do and staff can mark everything easily with minimum workload.
Most work is set up to be marked by a set of simple 1-4 tick boxes, with one task in every 3 also including WWW and EBI marking areas for more in depth marking.
List of topics included: History of sport, sporting events, famous athletes, local sports provisions, fitness testing and training, nutrition, technology, stadiums and facilities, healthy lifestyle, injuries, officials, media, and money in sport.
Please note task 4 will require adapting to your area – currently resourced to suit the Sunderland area.
Set of 24 orienteering site cards and master answer sheet to check answers.
However you run your orienteering in your school you simply print off these site cards, place them around your school site, give each student or team a category and send them off to find them!
We laminate and attach ours to small wooden boards so that they don’t blow away or get damaged in wet weather (the site cards that is not the students!).
Full set is of 24 sites, each with 11 different categories on them, so once you have your maps prepped for your site you can reuse this same set of site cards over and over again without the students ever having to repeat the same answers. Answer sheet provided so that you can have a copy with you to check student answers in real time without having to collect the sites in first.
Provided in word/power point format so easily adapted to add or change any categories.
Here we have resources for a full unit of work on trampolining, suitable for KS3 or KS4.
Includes resource cards on:
Basic shapes - tuck, pike straddle
Basic landings - seat drop, front drop, back drop (all including progressions such as swivel hips and half turns)
British gymnastics proficiency awards 3-10
Also includes record sheet tailored to the above resources and a one page teacher tracking document.
9 Lessons of practical fitness activities that can used as a unit of work, one off wet weather lessons, or taught alongside KS4 theory content.
All lessons are resourced and explained where necessary - circuit training cards are obviously self explanatory.
All resources in word format so can be edited or amended based on equipment you have available.
MOST sessions require minimal or basic equipment such as cones, floor mats and benches but SOME require more specialist PE equipment such as boxercise which requires gloves and pads, and some circuits that require basic weights (dumbells or barbells) or agiliy ladders/hurdles. Most equipment can be adapted though such as at our school we use rounders posts for agility poles!
KS4 Fitness booklet - Ever been doing a fitness lesson with KS4 students who just seem to lack motivation or direction?? I have!!! This is why I developed this KS4 fitness booklet, to try and direct my students without having to do a full fitness instructor style lesson as I would with KS3.
The booklet includes a range of different training sessions that covers all parts of the body, it includes weight training for use on machines, it includes circuits training sessions each with a different focus, it includes a record sheet if students want to keep track of what they have done (or if you want to keep track of what they have done!), and it includes some more fun and possibly relevant challenges for those students who might even just want to go for a walk on a treadmill.
Each of the sessions can be used independently in core lessons depending on your facilities available, or he full booklet could be used to guide fitness training programmes in exam based lessons. To make it more user friendly or adaptable I have included all of the sessions individually as well as in booklet format so you can choose whichever format works best for you or your school without any extra work. Our current use for them is we have a load of each of the individual session plans printed and in wall mounted holders, then our KS4 students can just pick them up in their lessons or after school and do a session completely independently based on a fitness method or component of fitness of their choice.
Can also double as a unit of work doing a different session each lesson, or could be used with older KS3 students if facilities and behaviour allow for this.
Three mini cricket games that students can play during lessons. Each one comes with a written walkthrough and a colourful diagram.
Formatted to be able to print double sided on A3 or A4 and then laminate and give out to students during lessons. Have used these with all KS3 year groups and they work fantastically as independent games where students are responsible for setting up and running their own games - promotes independence and resilience as well as giving you as the teacher time to do some targetted intervention or teaching with key groups.
Three games are clock cricket, modified quick cricket, and pairs cricket. For the pairs cricket it also includes a separate score sheet that can be given to any non participants to keep them involved as an umpire.
