Physical Education

PE looks to promote holistic development and a genuine passion for learning for all students through participation, challenge and resilience leading to excellence, in both theoretical and practical environments.

Acting Director of Sport and Head of PE, Mr T Scorgie, t.scorgie@glynschool.org

Why study this subject?

Students should study this subject if they are motivated to develop three key areas:

  • Firstly, practical skills in a wide range of sports as a performer
  • Secondly, knowledge and understanding of fitness, training and human physiology
  • Thirdly, observation and analysis of sports performance, which includes giving verbal feedback in relation to one chosen sport

If you love sport, have a desire to learn and are prepared to complete written classwork and homework, then GCSE PE could be the option for you.

Is it right for me?

The course is heavily based around learning about the functioning of the human body, analysing performance and factors that can affect our participation. The content is in line with the A Level PE specification and is designed to enhance the knowledge of the benefits of a healthy active lifestyle as well as looking at the elite performer in detail.

A small proportion of the course is practical based with assessment of three sports at the end of the two year course, with a lengthy piece of written coursework using the theory content covered to analyse and evaluate personal performance.

Year 7 sequence of lessons

Throughout the year the students will be taught a variety of sports on a carousel basis. These sports are Basketball, Handball, Table Tennis, Badminton, Invasion Games, Short Tennis, Hockey, Cricket and Softball.

The theory topics are taught in this order because as a department we feel that it is vital for students to understand how important  physical training, sports psychology and health and fitness are in everyday life. The topics cover a variety of areas including the consequences of a sedentary lifestyle, how obesity affects health/performance and the reasons for a balanced diet. It also covers how we can use the components of fitness to structure training sessions and how to set realistic goals to improve performance.

Half Term 1 - Physical Training - Components of Fitness

Half Term 2 - Physical Training - Recap last HT’s content and Fitness Testing

Half Term 3 - Physical Training - Methods of training

Half Term 4 - Physical Training - Principles of training

Half Term 5 - Sports Psychology - Classification of skill

Half Term 6 - Sports Psychology - SMART goals

Year 8 sequence of lessons

Throughout the year the students will be taught a variety of sports on a carousel basis. These sports are listed below:

Basketball, Handball, Table Tennis, Badminton, Invasion Games, Short Tennis, Hockey, Cricket and Softball.

In Year 8 we recap the content covered in Year 7 and then develop it further to ensure that all the key concepts are explored. By covering the same three topics throughout year 7 and year 8 we hope that the students will have an excellent platform to start their GCSE PE course in Year 9 or if they do not wish to take it as an option, then have the knowledge and understanding to live a healthy active lifestyle.

Half Term 1 - Sports Psychology - Arousal in Sport

Half Term 2 - Sports Psychology - Aggression, Personality Types and Motivation

Half Term 3 - Health and Fitness - Physical, Emotional and Social Health, Fitness and Well-being

Half Term 4 - Health and Fitness - Consequence of a sedentary lifestyle

Half Term 5 - Health and Fitness - Somatotypes

Half Term 6 - Health and Fitness - Energy use, Diet, Nutrition and Hydration

Year 9 sequence of lessons

Half Term 1 - Skeletal and muscular systems, identification of bones structure of synovial joint, understand movement at a joint, identification of muscles, antagonistic pairs

This allows students an early insight into the type of knowledge they will need to be successful on the course.

 

Half Term 2 - Physical training - principles of training, FITT, methods of training, thresholds of training

This follows on from the work in Year 7 and 8 - here the students develop their knowledge and understanding using practical and theory sessions, and by also linking the use of data into their personal feedback. Students will already have some knowledge of this area and because of this being here we are able to embed their understanding further through a variety of levels of questioning.

 

Half Term 3 - Physical training - components of fitness, fitness testing, design a training session

This follows on from the work in Year 7 and 8 - here the students develop their knowledge and understanding using practical and theory sessions, and by also linking the use of data into their personal feedback. Students will already have some knowledge of this area and because of this being here we are able to embed their understanding further through a variety of levels of questioning.

 

Half Term 4 - Health and fitness - reason for participation in physical activity, sedentary lifestyle, somatotypes

Students will look to develop their understanding of long answer questions by using this area as a means of showing their understanding of an area that has been looked at in depth through KS3. As students develop their understanding of the course and about themselves they become more eager to investigate the area of diet and how they can use this knowledge to fuel their own bodies to improve their personal health.

 

Half Term 5 - Health and fitness - diet, energy use, nutrition, balanced diet, hydration

Students will look to develop their understanding of long answer questions by using this area as a means of showing their understanding of an area that has been looked at in depth through KS3. As students develop their understanding of the course and about themselves they become more eager to investigate the area of diet and how they can use this knowledge to fuel their own bodies to improve their personal health.

 

Half Term 6 - Use of data - types of data, presentation of data, analysis of data.

Students are required to look at data in various forms and analyse what it means. At this point of the course students will have seen various aspects of data in the half term they will explore how to interpret it further. Links with maths who have also done data in Yr 7and 8 and 9.

 

 

 

 

Year 10 sequence of lessons

Half Term 1 - Sport psychology 1 - skill and ability, information processing model, performance and outcome goals, SMART targets

Students will now be able to develop ideas on their theory that will begin to push their understanding. They will begin to look at sport psychology and how it is used and the types of questions that may occur in the GCSE paper. This also will play an important part within their NEA where they can use areas such as information processing model or arousal as part of the second area of theory.

 

Half Term 2 - Sport psychology 2 - types of feedback, arousal, direct and indirect aggression, personality types, motivation

Students will now be able to develop ideas on their theory that will begin to push their understanding. They will begin to look at sport psychology and how it is used and the types of questions that may occur in the GCSE paper. This also will play an important part within their NEA where they can use areas such as information processing model or arousal as part of the second area of theory.

 

Half Term 3 - Cardiovascular Fitness, structure of the heart, cardiac cycle, blood vessels

Looking at the second and third areas of physiology students will have time to explore the cardiovascular and respiratory systems as they have now begun to develop strategies to retain information that can be quite hard to explain.

This follows on from the work done in science. We do this after the GCSE biology course as this ensures we are backing up the knowledge and understanding of the students. This has been mapped here to link with the Bioenergetics element in Year 10 and the Principles of Organisation in Year 9.

 

Half Term 4 - Respiratory system, pathway of air, gaseous exchange, mechanics of breathing

Looking at the second and third areas of physiology students will have time to explore the cardiovascular and respiratory systems as they have now begun to develop strategies to retain information that can be quite hard to explain.

This follows on from the work done in science. We do this after the GCSE biology course as this ensures we are backing up the knowledge and understanding of the students. This has been mapped here to link with the Bioenergetics element in Year 10 and the Principles of Organisation in Year 9.

 

Half Term 5 - Sociocultural 1 - engagement patterns, sponsorship and the media, impact of technology, conduct of performers

The final section of the course is an area that generally has the most long answer questions written about it. By now students will have become well informed as to how to answer this type of question and this will link well with this topic.

 

Half Term 6 - Sociocultural 2 - PEDs, spectator behaviour

The final section of the course is an area that generally has the most long answer questions written about it. By now students will have become well informed as to how to answer this type of question and this will link well with this topic.

Year 11 sequence of lessons

Half Term 1 - Movement analysis - 1st,2nd,3rd class lever, mechanical advantage, planes and axis

Students will now have had a good breadth of knowledge given to them and because this is a difficult area they will now have more confidence in their learning to be able to understand this area.

 

Half Term 2 - NEA

This is completed here as it will form part of their revision but also as it gives them enough time to put together a well written piece of work that draws from many aspects of the course.

 

Half Term 3 - Revision

Half Term 4 - Revision
