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

(1)
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 quiz has very little educational merit whatsoever. It's based on ridiculous things from around the world and is split into 5 rounds of 10 questions each: Round 1 : Ridiculous Superheroes, multiple choice Round 2: Ridiculous names, True or False Round 3: Ridiculous statues, Q&A Round 3: Ridiculous inventions, Q&A Round 5: Ridiculous World Records, Q&A You could run the quiz over a period of time doing a round at a time or as one whole quiz. Answers are revealed immediately so if keeping score that will need to be done after every answer. All feedback, positive or developmental is greatly appreciated.

A quiz on the emerging superpower that is China!

(0)
This is a quiz with many rounds and varieties of questions including: *True or False - Inventions from China *Food *Movie titles translated from Chinese *Trivia plus many other questions about the history, culture, geography and other contextual, interesting facts about China. The quiz starts with multiple choice questions before moving on to more challenging questions that tend to be more fun based than informative. 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. This would be ideal as an introduction to China, as a starter for a lesson or for a fun lesson at the end of term or form activity. Any and all feedback, positive or developmental is greatly appreciated.
GCSE PE Components of fitness differentiated lesson, ready for immediate use following printing.

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

(0)
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.

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.

Ready to use, team-building exercise for the classroom. Discussion and decision making skills.

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.

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 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.
3 complete lessons on diet and food for GCSE PE including test with homework tasks.

3 complete lessons on diet and food for GCSE PE including test with homework tasks.

(1)
Lesson 1 includes a powerpoint to follow with notes attached giving contextual information. It also comes with a worksheet for lower ability students to follow. Some printing will be required prior to the lesson as students are required to show pictures of food (26 pics are included) and state what food group they're in and later which are the best examples of certain nutrients. Lesson 2 follows a similar plan of powerpoint with teacher notes and worksheet. This lesson is primarily about calories and finishes with a drawing task where students have to draw a previous meal (drawing framework included) and then work out the calorific content. This makes a great display and also allows students to work out what exercise they would need to do to 'burn off' their meal. Lesson 3 is again powerpoint based and deals with food imbalance. This can be a sensitive topic and so should be dealt with carefully. This needs some preparation in terms of bringing some flipchart paper for groupwork and some highlighters. There are a number of articles included about anorexia, obesity and malnutrition that students should highlight. Each one has a colour coded title to allow you to give it to the correct student. It's a traffic light system with Red being the hardest documents to read for the more able student and green the easiest. I have included the food imbalance video which is on the powerpoint separately just in case there are any issues with uploading. Finally, there is a 25 mark GCSE style exam. Any and all feedback, positive or negative, is appreciated.

Ideal for form or fun lesson, quiz based on TV show 'Only Connect.' 40 q's on p-point.

(0)
If you've seen 'Only Connect' on BBC 2 then you're probably a geek. Welcome to my world! This quiz is entirely based on that premise with four separate rounds of 10 questions. Round 1 is the missing vowels round where students have to work out the different flavours of crisps from the consonants that remain. Round 2 is Connections. What is the link between four different images/photographs. Round 3 is missing vowels again but instead of crisp flavours it's Pokemon names. Round 4 is Sequences. This time there are 3 images or pieces of information, students have to work out what the fourth could be. Each slide comes with a full answer to assist in understanding, whether this is on the screen or in the notes. I'd suggest that students do this in groups as it can be quite challenging but it has been deliberately aimed at secondary students with popular culture references as well as more educational references. This is designed not to test knowledge but to test critical thinking skills. Any feedback, positive or developmental, greatly appreciated.

Diff'd Workbook to celebrate the Rugby League World Cup 2017 in October.

(0)
This has been created to allow students to understand the celebration that is the Rugby League World Cup and hopefully foster an interest in a minority sport at a time of year when there is not an awful lot happening in the world of sport. I've created this so that all students using it can come complete a workbook that is different from everyone else's but also differentiated to their needs. For example, there are three sheets on Legends, each one has a different task that is aimed at different levels of ability. Students should/could choose or be given a team to follow and have as their nominated team and spark some extra interest in the tournament. Pages are interchangeable so that fast workers can readily move onto the next page whereas slower workers can sheets that they may access more readily. Activities include: *Research activities on the host nations and history of the tournament. *Creating your own opening ceremony. *Matching key terms to their definitions. *Researching nominated team. *Focus on legendary players. *And more This resource can easily be adapted for the other home nations. Any and all feedback, positive or developmental, is greatly appreciated.
