The same context is covered in both classes at Level 2 the pitch is at Rio Olympics 2016
Here we look at the sociology of sport. Past political, historical, economical factors that surround one of the biggest Sporting events in the World.

The level 3s also look at Rio Olympics 2016. They examine a current Physical Activity Trend or issue and its impact on NZ Society. This is usually written as an essay and is assessed rigorously on its critical analysis. A background in Physical Education would be useful to help understand the sociology behind the topic chosen. Students are able to choose their own topic here too. This contributes to reading credits for UE.
