Physical Education

Department Information

Year 7 (Boys and Girls Physical Education Curriculum):

Aims of the PE department:

  • To be physically active for sustained periods of time.
  • To increase knowledge on the importance of preparation and participation for a healthy, active lifestyle
  • Develop skills and techniques in a wide range of physical activities including team and individual sports.
  • To engage students in competitive sports and provide opportunities to develop skills in a wide range of extra- curricular clubs.
  • To develop a knowledge and understanding of GCSE Physical Education theoretical studies.

Students will develop a range of fundamental and basic skills. This will help to develop their knowledge and understanding in performing in a competitive environment in a range of different sports and physical activities.

Students will build foundations of a theoretical knowledge of GCSE Physical Education through flash card starters, homework booklets and topic quizzes.

 

Practical activities:

  • Baseline skills and fitness tests (This is to assess student’s current physical ability) – This will be supported by Featherstone Rovers
  • Boys – Rugby League, Football, Netball, Badminton, Cricket, Boxing and Athletics
  • Girls – Hockey, Netball, Rugby League, Badminton, Rounders, Dance and Athletics

Students will change activities every half term

 

Physical Education Assessment              

Throughout Year 7, students will be assessed lesson by lesson on the activity they are taught each half term using GCSE scoring.

The process of assessment firstly looks at the technique of specific basic skills under no pressure (Low level), then progressing to applying the skill in pressurized situations (Mid-level). Once this is achieved, the students will select and apply the skills into modified games where the pressure is more difficult and sustained (High level).

They will achieve a GCSE score out of 1-9 for each lesson and an overall mark at the end of each activity—this will be followed by teacher and peer assessment to identify student’s strengths through ‘What Went Well’ (WWW) and also how to improve through ‘Even Better If’ (EBI).

 

Year 8 (Boys and Girls Physical Education Curriculum):

Aims of the PE department:

Year 9 Pre-Option GCSE Physical Education – (One-year introduction course)

The pre-option course is to build on the foundations created at Year 7 and Year 8 to provide students who have desire to take GCSE Physical Education as a full course starting in Year 10.

The pre-option course will be studied over one academic year with three lessons set aside to deliver both practical based activities and theoretical lessons in a classroom.

 

Practical activities:

The following activities will be delivered within GCSE Physical Education lessons to refine the skills and techniques already acquired within Years 7 and 8

  • Rugby League, Football, Hockey, Netball, Badminton, Cricket, Boxing and Athletics

Theoretical Activities:

Students will look to develop and improve theoretical knowledge and understanding of the factors that underpin physical activity and sport and use this knowledge to improve performance.

Furthermore, students will need to understand how the physiological and psychological state affects performance in sport.

Finally, students will need to understand how key socio-cultural influences can affect people’s involvement in sport.

Students will study a range of topics in GCSE Physical Education theory lessons to provide them with a greater understanding the required theory based knowledge needed on the course.

The following topics will be taught to pre-option students;

  • Skeletal system, Muscular System, Diet and Nutrition, Components of Fitness, Principles and Methods of training, Prevention of injury, Health/Fitness and Well-being.

Physical Education Assessment

Practical Assessment            

Throughout pre-option GCSE Physical Education, all GCSE practical lessons will be assessed each lesson over the half term using GCSE scoring.

The process of assessment firstly looks at the technique of both basic and advanced skills under no pressure (Low level), then progressing to applying the skill in pressurized situations (Mid-level). Once this is achieved, the students will select and apply the skills into modified games where the pressure is more difficult and sustained (High level). Students will look to apply the advanced skills required for high outcomes in actual games at school / club level.

They will achieve a GCSE score out of 1-9 for each lesson and an overall mark at the end of each activity—this will be followed by teacher and peer assessment to identify student’s strengths through ‘What Went Well’ (WWW) and also how to improve through ‘Even Better If’ (EBI).

 

Theoretical Assessment

Students will participate in a number of theoretical assessments to highlight key strengths and areas to improve within the course.

These assessments will take place throughout the academic year and will be for each topic. Support will be provided through revision sessions and period 7 sessions.

  • Assessments will be through topic quizzes, Peer assessment assignments, end of topic tests and mock exams. Plus, books will be regularly marked to view progress throughout each topic.
