Our Athletics Lesson Plans (KS3 & KS4) include:

To perform events and activities effectively and consistent.  They should be able to anticipate and develop responses for their own performances in order to further improve, adapt and refine them.  Throughout the phases students are constantly asked how to outwit opponents; evaluate performances; analyse strengths and weaknesses; whilst developing, adapting and refining skills, strategies and tactics to produce high levels of performances and high quality techniques. They should also be able coach, analysing and evaluating performance, giving responses and feedback to others using technical,  mechanical and physiological terms in explanation  which will also help to develop skills, knowledge and understanding.  The students will also have developed their own training diary over the period which they will use to teach / coach others in their chosen and specialised areas, using training, activities and skills that they have performed to develop theirs, and other student’s skills.

To understand that different events demand a variety of styles and techniques. Students should be able to describe the elements of an effective running style and this should be demonstrated in performances over short sprint distances. A basic semi-crouched sprint start should be used by all students to begin short sprint races and To describe in simple mechanical terms the benefit the crouch position has. Students will gain experience at basic jumping events, aiming for height and distance and should be able to demonstrate a basic though technically correct technique in each of these disciplines, as well as being able to describe the main similarities and differences between the techniques used in each. Students should also be able to perform the shot putt and discus using a simple pushing and slinging technique from a side-on starting position and should understand the need for the whole body contributing to the throw. Throughout the phases students are constantly asked how to outwit opponents; evaluate performances; analyse strengths and weaknesses; whilst developing, adapting and refining skills, strategies and tactics to produce high levels of performances and high quality techniques.  Students should understand the need for strict safety precautions and procedures that are used by the teacher during each of the lessons. Students should also understand the importance of preparing for and recovering from exercise safely and effectively and to know the principles.

To be able to use the full-crouch start to begin short sprint races. Students should understand the term acceleration and can perform techniques to optimise acceleration from the start of the race. Students should be able to use a basic hurdling technique over low hurdles and should understand competition rules regarding false starts. A basic ability to pass the baton should be demonstrated in short and continuous team relay races and students should know which distances are covered in competitive relay events. Students should start to use more advanced jumping techniques with an extended run up used in the high and long jump, and a basic standing triple jump should also be achieved by the end of the scheme. More complex movements should be included in the discus and shot using a larger rotation moving from a low to a high body position whilst throwing appropriately weighted implements. Throughout the phases students are constantly asked how to outwit opponents; evaluate performances; analyse strengths and weaknesses; whilst developing, adapting and refining skills, strategies and tactics to produce high levels of performances and high quality techniques.  Students should be able to officiate and measure distances and heights in these events.

To be able to set up and use the starting blocks to begin a 100 metre sprint race. Students should understand the term ‘pacing’ and be able to apply pacing to races over longer distances. Students should understand how changeover boxes are used in the relay and should be able to apply this knowledge to the 4x400 and 4x100 relay race events. Throughout the phases students are constantly asked how to outwit opponents; evaluate performances; analyse strengths and weaknesses; whilst developing, adapting and refining skills, strategies and tactics to produce high levels of performances and high quality techniques.  Students should be able to use more advanced techniques in the long jump, triple jump, discus and shot and should be able to perform a basic javelin throw. Students should also be able to use video analysis to analyse the technique of others and be able to describe differences in technique between performers as well as attempting to describe the reasons for these differences using basic mechanical terms.
