P.E. HOMEWORK BOOKLET 2013/2014

Homework in Physical Education at Key Stage 3

Your compulsory homework will be set once every half term. This usually will be given out in the second week after you come back from the holiday break.

The homework will normally be something for you to plan to for either the next lesson or for future lessons. For example, you may be asked;

Create a practice you can deliver to a small group of pupils to help them improve their passing skills during a game. You can use any of the following passes in your practice:

a) Chest pass                 b) Bounce pass              c) Shoulder pass

So, looking at the above task, you will get the chance to be the teacher!

There is also an extension activity if you want to develop your knowledge further.

In addition to the set homework there are also plenty of other tasks for you to attempt. You do not have to do all of them but by trying some of them, you will deepen your knowledge in the activities you do. The choice is completely yours!

Any extra work you do will be marked by your teacher and returned to you. If it is exceptional work, we may ask your permission to display your work so that others can learn from it too.

Extra Curricular

We would also like you to take part in as many extra curricular activities as you can. This could involve coming to lunch time clubs, after school practices, joining school teams, representing your form in inter-form competitions or entering individual competitions.

Get active – get involved!

Guidelines
