Hello,

As a sport coach I just wanted to echo how true the sentiments in this lesson and the youtube video are! Really liked this lessons as it gets into the philosophy of sport, which is something that you don't generally get into in the PE lessons.

It's also great to educate the the students who don't really 'get' sport or enjoy it as it can broaden their perspective on the matter so thanks for that!

Cheers

Danny

Hi Naenitka

Thanks for your comment -if you take a look at the lesson plan, the text for task 3 (and the running dictation) is on the 5th page of the lesson plan. You need to scroll down a bit to get it.

Hope you enjoy the lesson!
Best wishes,
