Physical Education KS3 / GCSE: Bryony Shaw - Olympic windsurfer

We join Bryony Shaw at her training camp in Southern Spain.

She introduces her friend and professional rival Marina Alabam.

They talk together in both English and Spanish and explain the bond that exists between them because of their shared interest in the sport and learning languages.

Key words and phrases in Spanish are demonstrated and shown on screen.

This is from the series: Speaking Sport

Teacher Notes

Students studying PE could be invited to practise the basic Spanish that is presented in the interview.

They might then visit a younger class in the school and tell them about the techniques and preparation involved in training and preparation to compete in elite sport.

An addition to the visit would be an introduction to speaking Spanish, where pupils could stress the social benefits within sport, of making the effort to speak another competitor’s language.

Curriculum Notes

These clips could be used for teaching PE and Modern Foreign Languages at KS3 and KS4/GCSE in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

It appears in OCR, Edexcel, AQA, WJEC, and CCEA GCSE.
