Skills and Tactics Cards for KS3 PE

Separate versions available for Rugby, Football & Tennis

I really like these cards. The layout is excellent and the game-related... suggestions are first-rate. I Minto, PE Teacher, Level 4 Rugby Coach & Independent Reviewer

Dynamic and illustrated resource packs specifically written for the new National Curriculum, designed to inspire and physically develop students’ skills, techniques, tactics and strategies as they progress to becoming competent and literate sports performers.

Great for:

  • Supporting non-specialists and student teachers
  • Directing TAs working with targeted groups
  • Encouraging leadership and independent learning

Carefully structured into three distinct sections:

  1. Technique cards
    Illustrated step-by-step guides to all the core skills for each sport. Differentiated into ‘Easy’, ‘Intermediate’ and ‘Advanced’ techniques
  2. Practice cards
    Differentiated drills and games engage students in analysing and applying skills through direct competition
  3. Tactic and Strategy cards
    Multidimensional activities to improve tactical and strategic awareness through critical reflection

Cards include:

  • Striking illustrations and diagrams help learners get their head around core skills, drills and games
  • Clear aims, student-friendly instructions, equipment lists and key rules encourage independence
  • ‘Analytical’ questions encourage learners to step back, assess and analyse performance
  • ‘Match day’ questions enable students to apply skills and tactics to competitive situations, developing their awareness
The cards allow for student-led practice – something that Ofsted will be looking out for in PE for sure! P Kilroy, PE Teacher & Independent Reviewer
