Fun, creative soccer project book for students to create their own club. Ready to use.

These are two project books that are identical with one being on PDF and the other being on Publisher for your convenience. The whole idea behind this is for students to create their own football club from scratch. It is very design-based with tasks including creating the club badge, designing a kit and drawing the club mascot. There is also a transfer list task which includes adding up the cost of the transfers. www.transfermarkt.co.uk gives up to date values on players should you require them. Other tasks include simply reviewing some kits from the past and giving them the thumbs up or down and picking your first 11 and creating a key to represent them on the football pitch diagram. The final task is drawing a legendary player for their team. There is one blank page for better drawers and a choice of three designs for the less gifted. This could be done all together as a complete project or used sheet by sheet as an extension task or at form time. Any and all feedback gratefully received.

Athletics spreadsheet for saving results and running a competition. KS3 boys ready for immediate use

(0)
This is a spreadsheet I used to create greater interest in athletics with my KS3 boys. Simply fill in your students names and info. and then when they complete an athletics event, their score can be recorded and points are allocated based on their performance. The spreadsheet will add up all their points and rank them so the best all-rounder should accumulate the most points IF they complete all the events. Also, a colour is given to some scores: Bronze, Silver or Gold, utilising the scoring system from the ESAA Award Scheme. These 'medals' are hard to achieve in Year 7 but by year 9 there should be a number of students achieving these scores. This is why it's such a good resource to create interest year after year as students attempt to beat their previous scores/times/distances. Any feedback, positive or negative, is greatly appreciated. Please note, for girl's, the standards are different and would need to be inputted into the spreadsheet.

This is so that all students are able to participate and maintain interest until the end. Many questions have additional information attached to explain and provide further reference points.

Is Sport Sexist? Writing to argue task with lots of research activities. Ready for immediate use.

(0)
This is a topic that I would advise be completed over a two lesson period rather than rushed and squeezed into one. In my experience, most of my GCSE classes believe that sport ISN'T sexist because they see top sportswomen representing their country and people like Karren Brady and Delia Smith being influential figures at football clubs. This lesson seeks to redress those beliefs and enable students to apply a more balanced and thorough view. The lesson begins with a Do Now task where the answer is that all the activities are competed by only one gender. The main part of the lesson are a number of tasks to be completed. These can be done on an individual level or in groups. The activities are as follows: Select and retrieve. Students read one of the two articles and select passages of interest and relevance. Spot the difference. Students look at the differences between the genders in two different sports. Mystery Guest. Students name the sportspeople and attempt to explain whether they found it more difficult to name one gender over the other. Gender Equality. To add some balance there are examples of women being treated "equally" in sport, but is it fair? What’s your opinion? Some statements about sports issues that may or not be deemed sexist. Students should formulate an opinion based upon them and be able to explain their thought processes. Why the difference? A number of sports are listed with examples of the differences between them when it comes to gender participation with some questions to answer. Once students have collated some information from their sheets they get into groups with students who have had different sheets and share their info. It's important that they make notes so that they have a broad view of sport as opposed to just their info. sheet. Using these notes, students should then pick out their best points and complete the "writing to argue," worksheet. This should be the tool that enables students to write an essay using their knowledge to support their opinion. This can be done as a homework task if required. Any feedback, positive or developmental, is greatly appreciated.

When your school chooses to celebrate books and their impact on the world, it can mean that you’re left with a class that needs an activity. This is that activity. There are 8 rounds, comprising a total of 65 questions. Students can work individually or in groups. Answers are revealed straight after the question has been answered or at the end of the round so that students get immediate satisfaction. Round 1: Famous First Lines. What books are these the first lines to? Round 2: Celebrity Authors. Match the author to their book. Round 3: Missing Words. What are the words that missing from these titles? Round 4: Book Trivia. Multiple choice questions about books in general and their authors. Round 5: First Appearances. Match the character to the book that they first appeared in. Round 6: Banned Books. True or False round based on books that have been banned around the globe. Round 7: Famous book covers. Name the book from the cover. Round 7: Connections. What connects the book titles on display? To make this as accessible as possible, the majority of books are famous childrens’ books with some classics thrown in for more advanced readers. Also included are 4 word searches on Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and classic novels. There are 2 copies of each to allow for differentiation with one having the clues printed on and the other without. Any feedback, good or bad, is gratefully received.

Fairy Tale creative writing frame. Can be used in part or as a whole. Ready to use in lesson.

This is a series of four worksheets that guide a student through the creation of a character, description, planning and eventually crafting a fairy tale. I would suggest that this is ideal for KS2-KS3 and for low ability students in KS4. Each sheet has tasks to complete with opportunities provided for peer review and teachers feedback. As stated, this can be used immediately as it is self-explanatory, engaging and fun. Students are encouraged to draw a scene from a fairy tale on the first sheet, so drawing equipment should be available. Other than this, all that is required is a pen and a modicum of creativity. I've attached two versions that are identical with the exception that one is saved on publisher and the other is a pdf. You can use this resource over a series of lessons and as part of a whole unit on fairy tales. It has been suggested that a unit could start with some drama, re-enacting fairy tales, creating new ones and use this as the foundation for the work contained herein. Any feedback, good or bad is gratefully received.

This is a powerpoint with 100 statements. Students decide whether the statement is True or False. Can be used as a form quiz or group activity. Each statement has it's own slide and the correct answer highlights itself upon the click of a button. There are further explanatory statements on some slides. Due to the size of the resource it can be completed over a period of time or in one big session. A variant that I have used is dividing the room into two sides ( True/False ) and have students move to the side they think is correct. Those who get it wrong are out. Last man standing wins. All feedback, good or bad, is gratefully received.

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.

Over 100 slides of questions related to the PE GCSE course. Once the slideshow has begun, the slides will play at super speed and are stopped by the pressing the "S" key. The presentation will stop and a question will be visible. The questions are a variety of styles including: True or False Multiple Choice Missing letters Etc. The quiz can be run in a number of ways but I found it best to have students in teams and then, when the question has been selected, you can nominate someone from that team to answer therefore ensuring the student has a question matched to their ability.

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.

8 rounds with 60 questions in total on a variety of topics. Hosted by Headingley, the Queen's head butler, the quiz offers a unique and interesting insight into some of the differences between our countries but also some lesser known information about one of the most fascinating countries in the world. Round 1 - Multiple choice - General knowledge Round 2 - True or False - Born in England. Were these celebrities born in England? Round 3 - History Round 4 - Geography - places with the same name in both the US and England Round 5 - Sport - Which positions belong to cricket and which to rugby league? Round 6 - People - Which people are real historical characters and which are myths? Round 7 - Match-up - Match the English terms to their US counterparts. Round 8 - Multiple choice - Trivia When required, answers are revealed with supporting pictures and text boxes with additional information in. I should add that Queen Elizabeth II did not really request this quiz to be made. It was Prince William.

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.

This a booklet that I will use during form time for my Year 7 form throughout the World Cup. They will need to have a team allocated to them and will be expected to research their team and therefore need access to the internet or the library. The majority of this booklet was created by katlee90 and as such any positive comments should be directed to their page also. Some of the pages look as though they have been replicated but there are subtle differences to allow differentiation. Please feel free to comment. Bring it home!
