LA Code: 

Please no new students until week 4.

First, we need to wrap up a few loose ends from last term, by making sure our skills and strategies assessments are the best that they can be.


There is, again, the opportunity for two assessments, and one continued from terms 1 and 2.

This course will run for term 3 and the beginning or term 4.
The practical aspect of the assessment is yet to be confirmed, but we will also be diving into the the anatomy, biomechanics and exercise physiology of the body during movement in physical activity. Learning the ins and outs of what makes us more move efficiently and how our bodies work to allow this.

This course requires a large amount of theory so classes will be split between theory work in 3.3 and practical in either the gym space on level 4 OR off-site.

For those who may not have had the opportunity in term term 2, we will also complete a practical assessment where you are awarded for your skill level in a physical activity. This physical activity is yet to be confirmed, but it will be the same as 1.6.

1.1 (full year course)
Alongside this we will continue with the influences on participation in physical activity that we have been moving through for the first 2 terms.
