Miss Grocott's Year 9 Sports Science pupils have recently been learning about the components of fitness needed to be successful in a range of sports, and how to test these components.
As part of their coursework tasks pupils have had to conduct fitness testing independently, and record the results ready to analyse back in the classroom. Pupils have had to consider carefully the validity and reliability of their tests, and ensure test protocols were followed at all times.
Pupils have enjoyed putting the theory into practice and are now looking forward to developing a training programme, which will aim to improve the fitness levels of the performer they have analysed.
