What do teachers say about this resource? (7062)

It gives a ‘fresh’ way of teaching what some pupils find a very difficult theoretical element of the GCSE course. The supportive worksheets will provide the basis of written evidence of learning and act as a revision tool for pupils, or a basis for more extension work to lead on from. Pupils work on other skills such as communication, teamwork, leadership in addition to being active. Peer assessment is being used in many of the activities. I can see some of my own pupils gaining a great deal from doing some of the activities.

PE attracts practical/kinaesthetic people, so this will appeal to their preferred way if learning. It is something completely different to the norm, and so will provide a number of students with the hook they need to recall information.
