GCSE PE Exam Revision booklet - Part 1

This is the first part of a revision booklet I am producing for Year 10 and 11's completing the GCSE PE course. This first section covers the topics of The Active Participant, Demands on Performance, Health, Training, Diet, and various other sub-topics...The second part is still in production but a change in my job role has delayed this. I hope to complete the second and final part within the next month... ready for GCSE revision ;)Hope this is still of some help.

AS OCR PE Biomechanics  - New Specification

AS OCR PE Biomechanics - New Specification

This is the entire powerpoint for OCR AS PE Biomechanics module. It includes the overall specification for Biomechanics. It contains slides for each of the modules: Newtons Laws, (Balanced, unbalanced, free diagrams), Centre of Mass, Levers (1st, 2nd, 3rd, mechanical advantage) and Technology in sport (limb kinematics, wind tunnels and force plates). As this is a new topic for AS and its probably the hardest to teach students, I made a powerpoint with everything I would need to teach this tricky module. It contains easy to understand words, pictures and step by step approaches to understand this area.

AQA A-Level 8 mark student self assessment

AQA A-Level 8 mark student self assessment

I am really keen to get my students to sit 8 mark exam questions but feel like I do too much to then tell them what they are doing wrong rather than they find out for themselves. So I am now using this! :-)I get the students to sit the exam question / then either peer or self assess using the mark scheme and then complete this sheet. They then tell me what they need to do to improve - AO1/AO2/AO3 etc.
