It's called the Christmas quiz just because I used it at Christmas with my GCSE class this year. It can be used at any time. The quiz starts with some multiple choice questions related to the GCSE course before getting into some random and often ridiculous questions that are supposed to be for a bit of fun (but often resulted in arguments between teams when completed)! Feedback, good or bad is appreciated.

Quiz 1 - 11 all consist of 10 questions and generally focus on a particular topic. These topics are as diverse as Animals, Science, Superheroes, Literature and Shoes! All quiz questions are a mixture of multiple choice, T or F and regular questions. They are designed to be fun and informative and should sometimes spark debate. Feedback, good or bad, appreciated.

This is the classic "Lost at Sea," exercise where students are presented with 15 items that they should rank in order of importance on their life raft having been "Lost at Sea." It comes with a power point presentation that details the task, gives tips on completion and shows the correct answers. Also it has a written sheet with the directions on for the students on, an answer sheet for them to complete and an answer sheet for the teacher with rationale for each ranking. It is entirely up to you how you run the exercise but, for me, the most important part is how the students come to a decision and end up agreeing as opposed to getting the correct answers. I have done this and the post-mortem discussion is always the most valuable and where one sees the best responses from students.

Question sheets 1-7 are best printed out on A3. I always kept a few of these in my classroom as extension tasks or homework. They are designed to encourage students to plan an answer before writing. Q1: Other subjects relevance to PE Q2: Qualities of a successful first aider Q3: Funding an athlete Q4: Unsuitable sponsorship Q5: Effects of fatigue Q6: How exercise affects the c/v system Q7: How correct technique prevents injury Quiz, quiz, trade is a starter and plenary activity where every student has a slip of paper with a questions and its answer on it. They go around the room and ask someone their question. Once they have answered it, the correct answer is given. Then they swap roles. Once the second question has been answered, they trade questions and find someone new. This can continue as long as you wish but allows for lots of people to ask and be asked questions. The plenary at the end is simply the teacher asking the questions again. Everyone should be able to provide an answer! I like to have the class all stand up, they can sit down when they've answered a question correctly. The revision loop is a series of answers with an unrelated question on the bottom. Each student gets one of these slips and has to use their answer to answer someone else's question. Next, two Tarsia jigsaw puzzles. Simply cut out and muddle up and then re-arrange. Lots of ambiguity to promote discussion and problem solving. These resources will save hours of prep. and can be used repeatedly as part of your revision. Any feedback, positive or developmental, is greatly appreciated.

Diff'd lesson on aerobic/anaerobic respiration. Ready for immediate use, ideal for revision/recap

(0)
This is a complete lesson that needs no preparation other than printing the two activity sheets above for some of your students to use. I used this lesson as a recap for my GCSE PE class after they returned from half term holidays thinking they'd struggle to remember the difference between aerobic and anaerobic respiration. I was right, but this lesson lulled them into remembering and applying their notes in a fun and enjoyable way. I was genuinely surprised by how well the lesson went and how much they learned. Lesson starter is a crossword with all the key terms of the lesson. There are two corsswords, one with a word bank of correct answers and one without to aid differentiation. The power point contains a youtube link to an old Merrie Melodies cartoon of the fable of the Tortoise and the Hare. It's 8 and a half minutes long and makes for an interesting start to the lesson. My students were surprisingly attentive throughout! We then had a debate about how we can link this story to demonstrate respiration and it's effects. Once students start to see the link we can begin with the main activity. Students have to retell the story but using some specific terms that relate to respiration. This task is differentiated in three ways. For the more able students they should write their story in continuous prose. For intermediate students there is the attached short version of the story to remind them or to stick in their book. For low ability students there is a comic strip for them to annotate or add dialogue. Any feedback, good or bad is gratefully received.

This resource is ready for immediate use and is aimed at GCSE PE students, however it would also be useful in a variety of other subjects. It has the Tour de France as it's main focus, utilising imagery, video and examples to help students understand the importance of sponsorship within sport. The powerpoint prompts debate and asks questions of the class for students to answer both verbally and in their books. Access to the internet will be needed as there are youtube clips to link to. Also included is a worksheet for less able students to complete instead of writing notes and copying out. This allows for differentiation as they will get all the correct information down whilst also doing the work required of them. Any feedback, positive or developmental is greatly appreciated.

Euro 2016 Differentiated activity booklet, ideal for form time. All home nations and ready for use.

This is similar to my Rugby World Cup resource but is significantly bigger. I've designed it as an ongoing resource to be returned to every form time for the duration of the Euro tournament. It comes with a powerpoint that has all the participating teams on it. If you play the powerpoint then the images will quickly change. Press "S" and the slideshow will stop on a team. Press "S" again to re-start the slideshow. Using this method, each child can randomly select a team to follow. I did this with my form with a prize if their randomly selected team won the tournament. This team will also feature in their booklet as a research project. The booklet starts with a page about the hosts of the tournament, France. This is a research activity and so access to computers or books will be required. There are two sheets which look identical but this is not the case. One has prompts to assist lower ability students with some French historical characters to research. The next page looks at the history of the tournament and again has a differentiated version for lower ability students. Following on from this is a picture quiz where students have to name the winners of the previous tournaments. Next is a research project where students are asked to design a poster for their previously selected team. There is a differentiated version for lower ability students with a number of prompt questions to help with research. The next three sheets each relate to one of the home nations so that any students who have an allegiance to that nation can still participate. This task is to create a song/rap or chant about their nations success. Again with specific home nations sheets is the next task which is to design their football kit. Next is an art project looking at the work of Robert Delauney, a famous French artist with a particularly bright and vivid style. Students are asked to reproduce his work and this can be extended to adapt a football picture into his style of work and a blank canvas for the truly creative. There follows a focus on four famous players with an attached fact file and a drawing to colour in. Once this is completed there is a blank fact file for students to pick their favourite player and complete accordingly. Finally there is a puzzle page with riddles and a word-search. The answers are on the final sheet. There are a number of ways in which you can run this project: You could compile the workbooks beforehand and hand them out so that they are differentiated to each class members ability. You could hand out each page individually and then compile them at the end. My ideal would be that everyone gets a different sheet so that everyone is doing a different task within the same time frame and then they are compiled at the end. Any feedback, positive or negative, is greatly appreciated.

Ready to use English Premier League quiz and prediction activity with team selector. Soccer!

This is an ideal activity for form time or even as a lesson starter to come back to over the year. The Premier League Quiz has approx 50 questions and match-up activities all in rounds of 10 marks to help you keep tabs on scores. You could even do the quiz over a number of days/weeks as there are 6 separate rounds on topics like 'Last Season', and 'Premier league Legends.' All the question slides are visually stimulating with either photographs or information boxes to add context and interest. As an ongoing activity I have included a Premier League prediction sheet that, in conjunction with the powerpoint presentation will allow students to predict what happens in the next season. These sheets can be re-visited periodically to see how accurate they were. A prize could even be awarded for the most accurate. There is also a number of team selector sheets where students can create their own Premier League team. I have included three different formations and left one blank in case they want to create their own formation. Any and all feedback gratefully received. Any questions, please let me know.
