Carefully constructed lessons with supporting worksheets guide you and your students step by step through the challenging topics on the AQA GCSE PE specification.
Why is ‘Movement Analysis’ a tricky topic?
Students struggle with the concepts of ‘movement analysis’ as the complex and dynamic nature of sporting movements makes them difficult to interpret. Additionally, unfamiliar technical terminology can lead to lower confidence.
Why is ‘Physical Training’ a tricky topic?
Physical Training requires analytical thinking to link together the various components of fitness, the tests used to measure them, the types of training to develop them, and the principles of training required to optimise fitness programmes. The challenge then is to apply this knowledge to individuals or different training contexts and use high-level thinking to evaluate, discuss and justify reasons for selecting a chosen fitness component, test or training method. Previous examiners’ reports have indicated that students struggle to access AO2 and AO3 marks in the exams, due to not relating their answers to the given contexts.
Why is ‘Use of Data’ a tricky topic?
Constructing and interpreting figures can be a challenge for the experienced scientist, let alone students who may not have had clear and direct teaching of this skill. Previous examiners’ reports have indicated how marks can be easily lost for drawing inaccurate lines when plotting a graph or for not understanding the key aspects of the figures presented, e.g. axes, variables and data points.
