Year 10

The course is designed to give candidates an opportunity to extend and apply their skills through a practical activity. Lessons are divided into theory and practical lessons which are mainly fitness based and designed to consolidate candidates learning of the factors that underpin physical activity and sport.

UNIT 1: Theory

Introduction to physical education:

The subject content focuses on five key areas, three of which are covered in year 10:

 

  • Health, training and exercise
  • Exercise physiology
  • Movement analysis
  • Psychology of sport and physical activity
  • Socio-cultural issues in sport and physical activity.

There is no written examination in year 10.

Practical

Pupils will be assessed through three practical activities which includes a personal fitness programme (50% of the final mark).

Practical activities will be assessed during core PE lessons, tournaments and extra-curricular fixtures throughout the year.

Coursework: Pupils will plan and perform a personal fitness programme for one of their chosen practical activities over 8-12 weeks. (8% of qualification).

 

Unit 1: Theory

Introduction to physical education.

Written examination: 2 hours (Year 11)

Year 11

Learners will continue with the practical assessment from year 10.

WJEC GCSE Changes 2021 resulting from the Covid 19 lockdown:

Students will now be assessed in two practical activities in the role of a performer in the spring of 2021. Both activities will be equally weighted. It has been verified that the coursework will not be examined in 2021. This has changed from three activities for assessment and the coursework.

Learners will be assessed in their ability to:

  • Apply the appropriate skills and techniques to the activity in demanding situations
  • Apply appropriate decision-making and strategies in demanding situations such as full games
  • Apply compositional ideas in performance situations in creative activities such as dance and gymnastics
  • Solve problems whilst under pressure in physical activity and sport
  • Apply physical attributes appropriate to the chosen activity

UNIT 1:

Introduction to physical education: The two remaining modules to be taught in year 11 will include:

  1. Psychology of sport and physical activity
  2. Socio-cultural issues in sport and physical activity.

Written examination: 2 hours (100 marks)

50% of qualification

UNIT 2: The active participant in physical education.

Assessment of practical performance: Candidates can be assessed at intervals throughout the course.

For the team sports/activities candidates should:  demonstrate the application of skills, techniques and strategies appropriate to the position/activity in demanding situations i.e. competitive contexts.

For individual sports/activities candidates should: demonstrate the application of skills, techniques and strategies appropriate to the activity in demanding pressure situations.

Candidates can offer off-site activities for assessment. Off-site activities are those that do not take place at the school campus. In these instances, appropriate DVD/digital evidence must be available for the performance of all off-site activities. All DVD evidence must be handed in for assessment by October half term.

Non-exam assessment  (100marks)

An internal assessment of the practical activities will be set in January 2021 before the external moderation.
