Ready to use PPoint with 100 funny facts that are true or false. Ideal for form time/fun lesson.

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.

This is a quiz with may rounds and varieties of questions including: *True or False - Celebrities born in Spain *Pet translations *English TV in Spain *Spanish Football Teams plus many other questions about the history, culture, geography and other contextual, interesting facts about France. The quiz takes on a bell model, starting with easier questions moving on to more challenging questions before finishing with easier ones again 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. Some questions are asked in English with English answers, some are asked in Spanish with English answers and some asked in Spanish with Spanish answers. This would be ideal as an introduction to Spanish, as a starter for a lesson or for a fun lesson at the end of term. Any and all feedback, positive or developmental is greatly appreciated.

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.

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.

GCSE PE Components of fitness differentiated lesson, ready for immediate use following printing.

This is a lesson that I did with GCSE PE students in year 9 for a job interview. It was very well received and enabled me to get to the interview stage. Unfortunately, I blew the interview! This lesson is differentiated with students expected to share the information they have so that everyone has the same outcomes. The lesson starts with a "Do Now," task looking at five females and pondering which one is fittest. Obviously it depends on the context, following the lesson they should realise that it depends on which component we are using to decide. This is something to be returned to at the end of the lesson. The powerpoint takes us through the components of fitness and any gaps in knowledge are expected to be discussed and notes made on the worksheet. You'll notice that each sheet has different photographs on it. This is to broaden the horizons of our students so that when they think of an event that requires C/V endurance they have a number of examples. As students work through the powerpoint, completing their worksheet, they will eventually reach the questions in the middle of the sheet. Each sheet has a different set of questions with the first being an easy question, the second, more challenging and the third is the most difficult. Students are encouraged to discuss their questions with their peers, this way, they can't copy answers from others but actually end up answering more questions as they assist one another. We return to the "Do Now." Have opinions changed based upon our new knowledge? It is then revealed that they are all international level athletes in the following sports: 1. High jump. 2. Weight Lifting 3. Rhythmic Gymnastics 4. Marathon 5. Heptathlon Each one of them is very fit depending on which fitness component we are looking at. Students are then given a post-it note on which they must write down their name and which component would be most important for each athlete on the board. Any feedback, positive or negative is greatly appreciated. Should I have a specific, mixed ability class I would consider moving some of the questions around so that students get a sheet specific to their ability.

You can run this activity over a number of days or as one longer activity. There are over 50 questions that need to be cut out and folded over and an answer sheet. Each student picks a question and then answers it on their sheet. The questions are all personal and are designed to reveal a little about their personal history, their thoughts and their interests. Once complete, they return their questions and pick another. This can be done alternatively in pairs where the first student would ask their neighbour the question and write down their response so that they are learning about their classmate. The next question has to be asked to someone else and their sheet completed thereby getting to know other people too. This information can be used for a class display or a quiz based upon their classmates or just for fun to look at the following year. Sample questions: What is your favourite photo? If you could invent anything, what would it be? Some questions are closed questions, try and get students to expand upon a "Yes," or "No," answer.

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.

(1)
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 is a game that I used as a starter in every lesson with my GCSE PE group. It's a simple, fun way of getting little snippets of info. into their heads. Give each student at least one slip of paper, more able students can have 2 or more. Each slip has a blue answer, followed by a red question. Every answer corresponds to someone else's question. Whoever has the "Start," begins by asking their question, whoever has the corresponding answer, states it and then reads out their question. This continues until you get to the finish. If someone doesn't know they have the answer, get everyone left in the game to read out their answer until the correct one is announced. You can then ask that person the question at the end of the lesson to see if they have retained their knowledge. My kids loved it and after a couple of weeks it was taking them 2 minutes to complete instead of 10.

I created this resource for my form a few years ago for a bit of fun and it turned into quite an event. I've added to it by creating a true or false quiz for a bit of fun and context to give the students some ideas. As well as being a bit of a lark, it actually gives students an opportunity to get creative, to do some research and to spread the word about the plight of one of our most entertaining but also threatened animals. All feedback is gratefully received, whether positive or developmental. Thanks.

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!
