KS4 Curriculum Guide - Year 10 Physical Education
Term 1Applied anatomy and physiology & Training 
Students begin my learning about the structure and function of the skeletal system and synovial joints. Students will then learn about the relationship between health and fitness including the immediate, short and long term effects of exercise. Students learn the differences between aerobic and anaerobic respiration and training - including the recovery process. They then learn about the Principles of Training (SPORT), different training methods and the different training seasons. Finally students learn about the muscular system and how it works together with the skeletal system (musculoskeletal system) to produce movement at joints.
Assessment: Students will attempt an end of unit test comprising of a series of multiple choice, short and longer answer questions.Key Words and Terms
 
Term 2Training, movement analysis and data. 
Students will learn about the structure and functions of the musculoskeletal system that serve the body in different degrees, at different times to meet different demands, either separately or in combination. This will include the structure of the skeleton and muscles of the body, the structure of synovial joints, how joints allow different types of movement and how muscles work antagonistically on the major joints of the skeleton to affect movement in physical activity.
Assessment: Students will attempt an end of unit test in the format of a series of multiple choice, short and longer answer questions.The test will be comprised of 50% of questions related to current learning and 50% related to prior learning. Key Words and Terms
 
Term 3Health, anatomy and physiology, and movement analysis.  
Students will learn about effective use of warm up and cool down combined with specific training about the advantages and disadvantages, of weight, circuit, interval, continuous, fartlek and plyometric training. Students will study the principles of training, which includes specificity, progression, overload and training zones: calculating intensities to optimise training effectiveness. Students will learn about considerations to prevent injury. Students will gain an understanding of high altitude training and seasonal aspects
Assessment: Students will attempt an end of unit test in the format of a series of multiple choice, short and longer answer questions.The test will be comprised of 50% of questions related to current learning and 50% related to prior learning. Key Words and Terms
 
Term 4Applied anatomy and physiology and Sports Psychology. 
Students will consider the structure and functions of the cardio-respiratory system linked to the physical demands of performance. This will include the pathway of air, cardiac cycle, mechanics of breathing and the interpretation of a spirometer trace. Students will also learn about anaerobic and aerobic respiration.
Assessment: Students will attempt an end of unit test in the format of a series of multiple choice, short and longer answer questions.The test will be comprised of 50% of questions related to current learning and 50% related to prior learning. Key Words and Terms
 
Term 5Sports Psychology 
Students will learn about the first, second and third class lever systems with examples of their use in activity and the mechanical advantages they provide in movement. They will learn about planes and axes of movement used when performing sporting activities.
Assessment: Students will attempt an end of unit test in the format of a series of multiple choice, short and longer answer questions.The test will be comprised of 50% of questions related to current learning and 50% related to prior learning. Key Words and Terms
 
Term 6Socio-cultural influences
Students will learn about the classification of skills and the use of goal setting. They will study the basic information processing and guidance and feedback. Students will learn about mental preparation for performance including arousal, aggression, personality types and motivation.
Assessment: Students will sit an end of year exam which will be 1.5 hours duration, worth 78 marks and will cover all content for paper 1 of the specification. Key Words and Terms
