Ipad Apps for Physical Education In preparation for having some iPads at our disposal next term I’ve done some research into available apps and possible uses within Physical Education.

Securing that Leadership Position As we approach the traditional recruitment season in education we may find ourselves taking a sneaky look in the TES for more than just its stimulating educational content. Currently there are 4,610 available jobs listed in the UK, but with less than 10% of those (387) listed as leadership positions.

@MRPERROTTON Students come in to the classroom at AS full of confidence, after attaining excellent grades at GCSE level, they enjoyed the course at Key Stage four and many of them acquired strong practical grades. However, there is often panic after their first AS Physiology lesson, students bemused and worried where all the scientific aspects have come from, feeling it was definitely not as difficult at GCSE level. Unfortunately there is very limited physiology studied in the new GCSE course content and therefore this area is very challenging for students when they start the course in the sixth form. Science exams The real challenge for me is helping them answer the long answer questions vital for their theory exam.
