"Yes it is possible that it is due to timing and finance that sport is considered as important. An idea would be to incorporate physical activity into other lesson areas, in a similar way to functional skills."

"Great point Keeley, so if the teacher can word the activities in such a way that its more of a choice for the learners to extend, however could this perhaps have a negative effect on the more able learners remembering that most of them will still be…"

"Yes I believe this can lower a student's confidence, especially as there is no teacher support during this time. I know its a little off-topic, but I remember one extension given to us at school that was really good- to make a leaflet about…"

Extension Tasks- What effect do they have on the less able learners

Posted on January 7, 2013 at 7:49am 6 Comments

As we all know extension tasks should be incorporated in lesson plans, however do the activities that are put in place for the more able learners demoralise and demotivate the less able students?

Sport In College

Posted on December 30, 2012 at 7:36am 12 Comments

Around 25% of Colleges do not see sport as a key priority, even though there is evidence to suggest participation in sport helps with learner engagement, retention, attainment and the profile of the college.

Should there be a budget in place for all colleges, so that they are able to offer a variety of sport for all learners to participate in.......?
