KS3 Physical Education

Year 7

By the end of Year 7 all students should know and be able to do the following within each sport. Students will spend 8 lessons on each sport learning the rules, basic skills and the ability to apply them in competitive situations. Throughout the year at the start of each sport, students will be taught a lesson that links in with BTEC Sport on the 11 Components of Fitness. This will provide students with an insight to KS4 BTEC Sport.
