Alternative fitness circuit station resource cards - based upon yoga. Use in a circuit or use them to gain ideas to deliver a yoga session. Worked really well with engaging KS4 pupils within PE.
Also, used as part of my yoga SoW. Muscles in the body worksheets used alongside the yoga for fitness stations
Can be used as part of a gymnastics lesson or a HRF lesson where the core focus is on plyometric training to help imporve gymnastics performance
QR codes included on the resource card which can be used if the pupils require further assistance and need to be reminded of what the station includes
Bowling resource cards - 6 different bowls
Rounders tactics cards - can be used for the non-doers or for each team/group to focus upon
Rounders fielders pitch markings - to be used as a display, to help pupils understand where fielders can stand, to understand as a batter where is the best place to send the ball depending on the fielders position and what type of batting technique to use
Excellent resource to use for a fitness lesson related to circuits and also group work. The board has differentiated tasks for each of the tiles on the monopoly board. Either allow the pupils to select their own level of entry (green, amber or red) to introduce the inclusive teaching style, or pre-determine what entry level the pupils will complete. All pupils in the group do not need to complete the same differentiated task as their peers.
The ‘game’ also interlinks to the theory side of PE where it includes a ‘Monopoly robbery’ - there are pre-designed cards for the pupils to use to ask an exercise related question or they can come up with their own questions. This was designed to help reinforce the pupils knowledge.
To ensure the resource is long lasting, it is best to be laminated.
Various athletics resources.
Long Jump station cards which break down the long jump phases
Various relay task cards (upwards and downwards sweep), to suit all learners
Standing Pull Throw - Javelin task cards
Standing Push Throw - Shot Put task cards
Shot Put distance record sheet (each assigned to a coloured group based off the snap chat icon which linked to a snapchat behaviour board, so these icons can be deleted, or kept to help with groupings).
Shot Put peer assessment sheet
Starter movement sequence sheet - used to help with transitions into and out of basic movements/actions. Differentiate by allowing the pupils to complete the whole sequence, or just the into or the out of transition.
Sequence word activity - cut up the words and put 5 words into an envelope. Pupils in pairs/threes to use the words to create a ‘sequence’ (put in an order they would like to perform and then decide an action to represent it) and then link the transitions to the words/actions.
Gymnastics punctuation - line the punctuation cards up in an order. create an action to represent it e.g. a jump for the exclamation mark and then add in the transitions.
Sequence sheet - used for an end of unit assessment. Pupils created their sequence in relation to the criteria (stated at the top of the sheet).
Focus words - which relate to the assessment criteria for creating a sequence.
Resource cards with key terminology for sequences on them including: directions and pathways, levels, travelling actions and relationships with objects/partners. Use as inspiration for creating sequences
Useful resource cards to use alongside conducting the fitness tests - each card has questions which allow for revision (what component of fitness relates to the test, which athlete would use this test, etc). Easy to follow instructions are displayed for the pupils to follow.
Roles for non-doers also included to help support those who are conducting the fitness tests.
A good resource to use during a fitness session. Circuits split into 4 target areas, therefore they can be used as smaller circuits that the pupils work though (emphasis on muscular endurance) or they can be mixed up and used in a larger circuit.
Use the circuit muscle cards to identify and reinforce the muscles which are being targets at each station, or use them as a starter for the pupils to identify and then put the correct exercise with the muscles displayed.
Dance passport - I used this with my year 8’s for dance in PE, but could be used for any year.
Includes information pages about dance around the world from:
Bollywood - India
Haka - New Zealand
Capoeira - Brazil
Cossack Dance - Ukraine
Hip Hop - USA, New York
QR codes included on each dance page for the music and a video to see what the dance is to show to the pupils/for them to watch at their leisure/for ideas if technology is available.
Sequence pages included throughout, as well as questions for the pupils to fill in throughout the lesson or as homework. Two different assessment pages for the pupils to fill in and a subject-specific vocabulary page included to help introduce the pupils to commonly used words in dance.
*ASDR display posters also included
A mixture of sports psychology and skill acquisition match cards. Cards come in pairs with a key word and definition. Really useful for a revision tool, as a starter to recap learning or as an end of lesson activity.
I added numbers to the back of the cards once printed so the pupils could select a number and try to match the key word to the correct definition. With one group, they had the cards facing them and had to pair the cards together this way.
Links to aspects of the OCR A Level skill acquisition and sports psychology section of the syllabus.
*58 pairs included in this resource
Differentiated twister balance wheels. These twister wheels are based upon: patch, 1/2/3/4 point balances, inverted balances and partner balances. Good way to revisit balances or to introduce balances. The broader spectrum balance twister wheels allow for more creativity and independent thinking from the pupils.
Best used if laminated and a push pin used to attach the arrow.
Useful resource to aid in revision - used as a starter activity with my class. Similar to Taboo, pupils worked in pairs and they had to try and describe the key word (in black) to their partner without saying it. Differentiation was added by allowing some pupils to use the other key words to aid their description and others were not allowed to use the other words associated with the key word.
Related to the OCR A Level Sports Psychology section.
Related to the OCR A Level PE specification - snakes and ladders game can be used as either a starter or plenary to recap knowledge based upon the cardiorespiratory system. Answer sheet also included related to the questions on the board.
Station cards for partner fitness work outs. Differentiation included on the task cards with useful tips to perform also included. Useful resource cards to also promote social skills such as communication, partner work and cooperation.
6 different problem-solving resource cards based upon gymnastics basic shapes and locomotion (travelling and jumps). Can be used as a start task to get the pupils thinking about how they can creatively move or as a whole lesson working in a carousel format
