PE Key Stage 4

Year 10/Year 11

Students who opt to do Sport at KS4 will either follow the AQA GCSE PE specification or the OCR Cambridge National Certificate in Sport Science.

The students following the GCSE PE course will participate in a variety of practical sports from the AQA specification which will contribute towards 40% of the course.

The students who will follow the OCR Sport Science course will participate in a range of activities to complement the theory element of the course.

The theory aspect of the GCSE PE and OCR course will be focused around the topics of Sports Psychology, Applied Anatomy and Physiology and Physical Training.

This course will continue throughout Years 10/11 with practical moderation and the examinations being taken in May 2018

Practical catered for individual
UnitUnit content
Term 1
1.2.1: Physical activity and your healthy mind and body



















1.2.5: A healthy, active lifestyle and your skeletal system
Describe the different body types (somatypes)

Optimum Weight


Weight Related Conditions


Recreational Drugs



Performance enhancing drugs

Identify risks associated with participation in physical activities.

Role of skeletal system during physical activity

Exercise and physical activity




Diet
Endomorph, mesomorph, ectomorph
Explain the effect each can have on participation and performance, including identifying activities where different body types are an advantage

Outline why, and how, expected and optimum weight varies according to height, gender, bone structure and muscle girth, and explain how this may affect participation, and performance, in physical activity

Explain the terms: anorexic, obese, overfat, overweight and underweight and explain how they may impact on achieving a sustained involvement in physical activity


Explain the effects of smoking and alcohol on general health and on physical activity
-recreational (alcohol, nicotine/smoking)


Anabolic steroids, beta blockers, diuretics, narcotic analgesics, stimulants, peptide hormones – including erythropoietin/EPO.
The effects they may have on health, wellbeing and physical performance and why some performers might risk using them


Explain how to reduce these risks to better maintain wellbeing (warming-up/cooling-down, checking equipment and facilities, personal readiness/PAR-Q, balanced competition, adherence to rules, correct clothing).


Function of skeletal system for movement, support and protection during physical activity
-ranges of movement at hinge joint at elbow and knee, ball and socket joint at shoulder during physical activity (flexion, extension, rotation, abduction, adduction)

Effects of regular participation in – and long-term effects of participation in – exercise and physical activity (increased bone density and strength of ligaments and tendons)
Importance of weight-bearing exercise (exercises such as walking, running, tennis and aerobics) to prevent osteoporosis
The potential for injuries such as fractures (compound, greenstick, simple, stress) and joint injuries (tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, dislocation, sprain, torn cartilage), and their treatment using common techniques such as RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation)

Effect of calcium and vitamin D on bones.

1.2.3: A healthy, active lifestyle and your respiratory system


Role of muscular system during physical activity

Exercise and physical activity





Rest

Diet

Performance enhancing drugs.

Exercise and physical activity




Rest

Diet

Recreational drugs

Exercise and physical activity



Recreational drugs
Major muscle groups that benefit from particular types of physical activity (deltoid, trapezius, latissimus dorsi, pectorals, biceps, triceps, abdominals, quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteals, gastrocnemius)
Role of mucles in movement (antagonist and antagonist pairs)

Immediate and short-term effects of participation in exercise and physical activity (isometric and isotonic contractions, responses – increased fuel/energy demands, lactic acid, muscle fatigue)
Effects of regular participation in – and long-term effects of participation in – exercise and physical activity (adaptations – increased strength and size/hypertrophy)
The potential for injuries such as muscle strain and muscle atrophy (due to injury and inactivity), and their treatment using common techniques

Rest required for adaptation to take place, time for recovery before next exercise session

Effects of protein in building and repairing muscles.

Use of steroids to aid muscle building and recovery).


Immediate and short-term effects of participation in exercise and physical activity (increased heart rate, systolic/diastolic blood pressure, increased blood pressure)
Effects of regular participation in – and long-term effects of participation in – exercise and physical activity (cardiac output (HR x SV = CO), decreased resting heart rate, faster recovery, increased stroke volume, increased size of heart, effects on blood pressure, healthy veins and arteries)

Rest required for adaptation to take place, time for recovery before next exercise session.

Effects on blood pressure and cholesterol – HDL and LDL.

Effects of alcohol and smoking/nicotine on blood pressure.

Immediate and short-term effects of participation in exercise and physical activity (increased breathing rate, increased depth of breathing, oxygen debt)
Effects of regular participation in – and long-term effects of participation in – exercise and physical activity (increased lung capacity/volume and vital capacity)

Effect of smoking/nicotine on the alveoli-gaseous exchange.
