Taster sessions for Year 8 & 9 – GCSE PE syllabus

Over the past week students in Years 8 and 9 have been having taster sessions of the GCSE PE syllabus to grasp some of the key content ahead of making their GCSE selections. We look at two key topic areas; one from the Anatomy and Physiology side, looking at Gaseous Exchange, and one from the Socio Cultural side, focusing on Classifications of Skills. We hope these sessions have given a greater insight to the content and demands of the GCSE PE course to help students make informed choices about which options are best suited for them.
