It's worth 15% of the exam - don't leave it to chance!
Here's a detailed interactive spoken example of the EAPI for OCR A LEVEL PE which will enable your students to fully understand the requirements of and prepare thoroughly for this important part of the non examined assessment (NEA).
This engaging audio and visual resource puts your students firmly in the 'learning driving seat' and allows them to have complete control of their own learning and understanding by easily navigating to any section of the EAPI, whether it be strengths and weaknesses, progressive practices and coaching points or application of theory.
Providing your students with a step by step guide to the structure of the EAPI, this resource emphasises the use of key terminology and gives detailed spoken exemplar responses for each section, which include:
⁃ strengths and weaknesses (skills, fitness, tactics & overall success)
⁃ identification of a chosen weakness including justification and action plan for improvement
⁃ time frame (frequency and duration)
⁃ 6 detailed progressive practices
⁃ detailed coaching points for each progressive practice
⁃ application of theory, including: movement analysis, aerobic capacity, periodisation & training cycles, muscle fibre types, skill classification, types & methods of practice, methods of guidance, types of feedback, stages of learning and social facilitation
⁃ pre and post test measures for improvement
The sport used in this example is hockey, but the principles of much of the content are generic and can be applied to any number of different sports.

These domino question cards focus on helping students justify the placing of skills on different skill continuum. As identified in examiners’ reports, although students’ knowledge of skill classification may be sound, they often struggle to successfully justify the placing of skills on continua. These dominoes will help!
Brilliant for collaborative learning!
Here’s a versatile resource that allows you to print a number of domino style cards on the topic of classification of skill. Have your students work on their own or together in small groups in order to complete the domino circle. Then check their answers and understanding by projecting the power point dominoes onto the whiteboard.
Great formative assessment for learning activity - you can really see what your students understand and where they need more guidance.
An engaging interactive drag and drop activity for your students to use on their mobile devices as well as on school PCs and laptops.
Students have unlimited attempts to correctly complete each of the skill classification tables - one for each of the different continua on the A level PE specifications. Each table has the name of the continuum (on the left hand side) and spaces for students to drag and drop the correct content - the name of the skill, a description of each skill and an example of each skill. Oral instructions of how to complete the task are provided automatically on the first slide.
Students can easily navigate forwards and backwards within the resource by using the next and previous buttons, enabling them to compare the characteristics of each continuum. When they have finished each attempt students click the submit button to receive feedback on whether they have been successful or not.
Overall feedback is provided when the task is completed and students have the opportunity to review it to see how well they performed. Also, the task can be completed multiple times.
When successfully completed, if required, students can take screenshots and store their images in their appropriate folder (e-portfolio) or print to keep in their file or book.
See this resource in action by watching the accompanying video.

*“A superb resource to help students really show their understanding of the key concepts involved in the types and methods of practice.”
“Excellent resource for identifying misconceptions and for getting students to articulate their knowledge and understanding.”*
With this easy to use resource you’ll be able to challenge your students and enable them to see for themselves how well they know and understand the key concepts involved in the types and methods of practice.
Students are presented with a series of statements and have to decide whether each is correct or whether it contains an error. If they detect an error they must correct it.
In this resource there are 18 statements to do with the types and methods of practice which have been especially designed to challenge common misconceptions and enable your students to articulate their understanding of the concepts involved in this topic.
Specifically, the resource has:
a PowerPoint presentation of the 18 statements - useful for whole class teaching & working through the task as a whole
a randon generator PowerPoint presentation of the 18 statements - useful for retrieval practice & an element of surprise
MS Word and PDF worksheets of the 18 statements - perfect for individual study
colour coded MS Word and PDF documents of the correct and incorrect statements - excellent for teacher, peer & self assessment
Printable worksheets - ideal for students to make notes on and write their correct responses and to refer to for revision
Printable slides - to use for flashcard type activities
Error Detective video - to introduce the activity
Give your students the start of a sentence and they have to complete it correctly.
A really simple, yet engaging activity which will get your students thinking about the role of the 19th century public schools and their influence on modern sport.
Students simply choose a number by tapping on it, which reveals the start of a sentence. If students can correctly complete the sentence the sentence remains visible. If they can't complete the sentence correctly, it can be hidden by tapping on the number again.
Distribute this digital resource through your VLE, Showbie, (or equivalent) for your students to access on their tablets or mobile devices. To benefit from its full interactivity, students will need to download Microsoft's PowerPoint app from the App Store or Google Play (free).
Alternatively, it can be used as a whole class starter or review activity by projecting the resource onto your whiteboard. Additionally, the PDF version can be printed to be used as a paper resource.
What a great way to introduce attribution theory!
Instead of starting this topic with direct input from yourself as the teacher, why not get your students grappling with this engaging activity designed to help them really get to grips with understanding Weiner's model of attribution theory?
Here's how it works:
Students have a brief introduction to the concept of attribution theory.
They then read the captain's match report and have to decide for themselves whether each of the underlined sentences or phrases (attributions) fall into one of the four categories: ability, effort, task difficulty or luck.
Then open the activity up for discussion amongst your students to see where they have placed each of the attributions and to check understanding and misconceptions. Because students are working out the solutions themselves and with one another richer learning and deeper understanding takes place.

A dynamic presentation made on PowerPoint on Bandura's Observational Learning Theory. It provides the key concepts of the theory and is definitely not designed simply to be used as a front of class teaching resource to be copied off the board!!
Whilst providing the key terminology and structure, this resource allows you to elaborate and develop the observational learning theory with your students as you go.
I have successfully used this with my students as a guide; asking them to research the theory initially and then having them use this resource to explain the learning theory to themselves and others.
Using iPads or tablets you can distribute this to your students via Showbie and upload it on Explain Everything (both apps available on the App Store and Google Play). Then your students can record their explanation of the theory. When they're done, they put their work back into Showbie for you to listen to. Simple and a really great way to check how well they have grasped this theory and for you to provide valuable feedback.
There are also some scaffolded questions on this learning theory at the end of the presentation to assist students in their explanations.
What are the four stages involved in this theory?
Why is it important to get the learner’s attention?
What makes a good demonstration?
What key words could you use when describing the retention process?
What is involved in the motor production stage?
What is motivation? What can you as the coach do to promote learning?
Part of the reformed OCR A Level PE course (2016), set 1 includes 70 question cards on the emergence and evolution of modern sport in pre-industrial Britain and post-1850 industrial Britain.
Perfect for starting lessons, introducing new topics, interleaving and recapping previous learning as well as for collaborative revision activities, these flashcards can be projected on your whiteboard or printed in a variety of sizes (and in black and white) and displayed in your classroom or distributed to your students electronically.
Questions include topics on:
-the characteristics of recreational activities in pre-industrial Britain
-the socio-cultural reasons for the characteristics of recreational activities in pre-industrial Britain
-the characteristics of recreational activities in post-1850 industrial Britain
-the socio-cultural reasons for the characteristics of recreational activities in pre-industrial Britain
-law & order
-education & literacy
-availability of time & money
-type & availability of transport
Also included in this resource is a random question generator. Made on PowerPoint, questions will continue to appear in quick succession until you press the S key on your key board. To exit the slide show press Esc. Haven't covered a topic yet and don't want those questions to appear? No problem, just hide the relevant slides (in the slide view tab) until you are ready to use them. A fun and interactive way to engage your students in a question and answer session!
I've also added a worksheet of these questions which you can print (in black & white) and distribute to your students to write in the correct responses to the questions. I use these questions with my students as a working document throughout the academic year and refer to it often, so as to keep topics fresh in students' memories.
For more of the theory of using these cards, see Peter Brown's excellent book, 'Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning'.
An engaging interactive sorting activity designed to make even your most able students think hard! Perfect for self paced, personalised learning!
How does it work?
Students have to decide which of the three stages of learning each of the statements presented to them belong. They simply drag the statement to what they believe is the correct stage of learning.
To add further challenge to the task, feedback (successful or unsuccessful) is reserved until students have completed the entire task.
When I gave this task to my students for the first time, they found it very difficult and I thought the task was too much for them, (they had no previous knowledge of stages of learning). However, having really grappled with the content and yes, made mistakes along the way, their knowledge and understanding of this topic is now solid. Making our students think hard is no bad thing!
Here's one suggestion of how you could use this resource:
-distribute the url address to your students so they can access the task on their mobile devices or PC.
-ask them to complete the task on their own - this will be challenging for some and will probably take some time.
-next, after a period of time, whether successful or not, pair students up with a partner so they can share their thoughts and work collaboratively.
-pairs then become fours (collaborative learning continues) and so on until you have a whole class discussion about why each statements belongs in a particular category.
- if you have AirPlay or Apple TV, why not have one or more of your students project their screen onto the class whiteboard or TV so that they can explain their thinking to the rest of the class.
-upon successfully completing the task students can take a screen shot of the correct version and store it electronically or print it.
