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
21 yoga for flexibility resource cards/station cards.
Description of how to perform the pose and the target areas of the body included.
Pupils to create their own progressions/differentiations as part of the lesson - linked to my yoga SoW
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.

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.
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.
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.
Bundle includes resources which support an array of gymnastics domains.

Partner sequence sheet - related to an end of unit assessment

Resource cards for chest, stomach and back
Answer card - for the correct order of the station cards
Work sheets - for the pupils to record the pose name, station number etc in the correct order to check against afterwards
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.

*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.
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 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.
