GCSE warm up lesson

Discussion in 'Physical education' started by machadingding, Jan 24, 2011.

  1. Have had a look in the resources section- to no avail. Does anyone have any ideas or a lesson/or link to an existing lesson plan teaching the principles of a warm up and cool down (in a practical manner) for a year 10 short course PE class?

    I'd appreciate any ideas

    Thank you

  2. Very similar to how you would introduce the concept of warming up within a normal lesson. Obviously spending some more time on types of stretching (possibly a stretching circuit), examples of mobilization exercises that are approrpiate.

    A big thing I have started included over the last couple of years is activity specific pulse raisers/mobilization - integrating the GCSE warm-up/cool-down theory into specific warm-ups for specific activities, particularly helps when you begin discussing the mental benefits of a warm up as they can prepare for the skills/tactics etc to be performed in the activity itself.

    Hope this helps,
