The Inspired PE Forum has Launched

Hello! We are pleased to announced the launch of the Inspired PE Forum, set up in January 2015 as a place for PE teachers from across the world to share ideas and discuss common issues.
Having joined twitter this year and seen the power of social media as a tool for CPD. I quickly became a big fan of bloggers such as The PE Geek, Teacher Toolkit, PE Tip of The Day etc,  however I found I could only get so much information in 140 characters especially when some of the most inventive teachers don’t have blogs to follow! After a quick Google search I was stunned to find there wasn’t an active discussion forum for PE Teachers to share their ideas. From this Inspired PE was born and I’m sure it will prove to be a valuable tool for physical educators around the world.Please check out our competition to celebrate our launch. You can win some awesome PE related prizes whilst getting to grips with the Inspired PE forum.  The forum has had a good uptake so far with just under 50 PE teachers registering in the first 3 days however there has been over 500 guests who have viewed the forum but sadly not registered – I urge all PE teachers to register as I believe the forum is a great place to discuss ideas and chat with likeminded PE teachers (But I would say that wouldn’t I?!). Don’t take my word for it, sign up ask a question or share some knowledge.
I look forward to chatting with you… remember – some discussions need more than 140 characters

Peer Assessment: Do your pupils know what it is?

We all regularly talk to our pupils about Peer Assessment – but do they actually understand what we mean, and what Peer Assessment actually is? Ever the sceptic I asked a few pupils and was met with some puzzled faces… Luckily Comic Life saved the day.

Anyway this poster has been very popular with my followers on twitter so hopefully it can help your pupils to understand Peer Assessment too:

The Chocolate Bar Calorie Challenge

The chocolate bar challenge is a great calorie counting lesson for use in a school fitness suite. The pupils choose a chocolate bar from the back of the worksheet, and then try to burn off the corresponding amount of calories throughout the lesson.  MAP are encouraged to choose the higher calorie chocolate bars and LAP are encouraged to choose a lower calorie bar which will still challenge them.

Football Leadership Task Card

These task cards were used successfully in year 9 lesson, most of the pupils are very capable footballers so it made sense to push them further by adding in a leadership element.

Split group into 4 teams of 5 assigning one lead learner. The group reads the task card and sets up the drill, once the drill is set up the leader guides the group through it and provides feedback. The card includes progressions for more able groups.  After 5 minutes the groups rotate to the next drill, however the lead learner stays at their drill and teaches the next group to arrive there.

The Warm Up Menu

A nice quick warm up that pupils can complete independently allowing you some time to write up objectives, gather equipment. Pupils simply choose a starter, a main and a desert and warm themselves up.  Based on the Nandos menu, it has 2 chilli levels to allow for differentiation, MAP are encouraged to choose the ‘hotter’ tasks while LAP can choose the ‘cooler’ tasks.
