1.1 11PEA Turbo Touch (13-12 games)

Today we played turbo touch with the year 9s.  Turbo touch is a very simple yet fast game.  There is a try zone where you have to put the ball down in order to score.  You can't be  in the zone when putting the ball down.  We as two classes changed the rules up abit.  We decided to tap the ball when you get touch, you'll have to pass the ball twice before scoring and two touches only then handover to the other team .

I put myself on a 'M' because I was motivated and reliable to play.  I worked hard towards the goal with my team. I supported my teammates when I'm on and off the field.  I had seeks to try and improve on my performance through development of skills, well-being and fitness.  I had also tried my best throughout the activity.

The competition in the game was a positive because there was alot of people who was into the game and strive to win the game which made the game insane and hard to get to the try zone.  This made me think twice as fast as everyone else in order to try and get to the zone.

The Equipment in the activity was a positive inflence in my participation because we had all the right gears and the right equipment to play.  This helped to make myself and everyone play even more because there was equipment that wasn't broken or missing.

Enviornment was a negative inflence in my participation because it was  very small to play in as we had many people playing.  We couldn't play outside because the ground was muddy and wet from the rain.  We couldn't play on two courts because there was people fixing the light on the other side so for our safety we stayed away from it and just played on one court.

I could help increase my peers participation by encouring them to try harder and help explain things or the game rules if they didn't heard so that they don't waste the teachers time and everyone elses time.

Circuit Fitness suite (12-12games)

  • Explain the physical activity you participated in.

Today we did a fitness Suite Circuit. Circuit means having multiple stations. We did x3 rounds, the first two round were fourty-five seconds per station and the last round was twenty seconds per station. We had one mins rest between each rounds station.

The fitness activity we did was, Bicepcurls, Rowers, Lunge Jumps, Cycling, Russian Twists, Burpees, Med Ball Squats and the Agility Zig- Zag.

  • What level of effort and engagement were you participating at during today’s physical activity? Why? (Grade yourself NA, A or M and refer to marking criteria)

I would put myself on 'M' because I encourage my partner to do well and keep going when she felt the needed to stop and we only had about 10 seconds left on the russian Twists. I tried my best on all activity except the burpees but on the last round I tried my hardest.

What were three factors which influenced your participation? (Choose from the list below, and put a + or - beside the three factors to show whether it positively or negatively influenced your participation).

Challenge was a positive influence in my participation because the challenges had given me motivation to keep pushing myself past the limit, for example when we had 20 seconds lef and I was on the russian twits, I pushed myself and tried to get past 10 or 20 twits before the time was up.

Equipment was a positive influence in my participation because we had all the equipment ready and set up for us. No equipment was broken so it was good to use.

Environment was a positive influence in my participation because we were in an environment that had spaces and room for us to do our activity. This made us get around things well and workout well without hurting or knocking anything over.

  • How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future?
I could help increase on my peers participation by helping them and motivate them more often when they feel like giving up.

Ping Pong (game 11-12)

  • Explain the physical activity you participated in.

Ping pong is another term of table tennis. In the activity, there is a table, ping pong ball and a little racket. On the table there is a net that goes across the table. To score a point you'll need to hit the ball on your side and make it go over the net to hit the other sides of the table. If they hit it back you'll have to keep going until one of yous lose control of the ball.

  • What level of effort and engagement were you participating at during today’s physical activity? Why? (Grade yourself NA, A or M and refer to marking criteria)

I grade myself a M because I was enjoying the activity, supporting my teammate because she had never played ping pong. I seek to improve my performance and I worked hard to win the game as my partner really didn't participate in it.

  • What were three factors which influenced your participation? (Choose from the list below, and put a + or - beside the three factors to show whether it positively or negatively influenced your participation).

My skill level were a positive influence on my participation as I had the skill on how to play ping pong from my dad and brothers.

Sense of Achievement was a positive outcome on my participation because I wanted to achieve on one of my goals I had which was to try my best by my self since my partner didn't want to participate as she felt like she would make us lose, which I didn't mind because all I wanted to do was just play ping pong with everyone.

Previous experience was another positive inflence because I played and learnt how to play ping pong with my family, we would set a net on our dining table and just play it with one other all day and night, my dad taught me a way to hold the racket as I was struggling to hit the ball over the net.

  • How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future?
I could help my peers by explaining the rules and how to play it when they don't know. This could increase my bond with them and also help increase their skills level and sense of achievement.

Balance and Stablity

  • What are the three parts of balance and stability?

COG- (Centre of gravity.) Point which all parts of the object are equally balance.
LOG-(Line of Gravity) Vertical line straight down the body including through the Centre of Gravity to represent the direction of gravity.
BOS- (Base of Support) Supporting area benearth the body including the points of contract with the ground.

  • How can someone increase their balance and/or stability?

TO increase their balance they need to increase their base of support to have good balance. Also the line of gravity will have to be straight down from their head to toes.

  • Describe your task from the start of the poses to the end of the Slides. Talk about what you enjoyed and what you found difficult.

This first position we did with all of peers and class mates, this was a easy but hard part to do as some people on the bottom wasn't very strong and didn't have balance to hold the people on the top. We were also very close to each other which was gave us an unbalance surface.

The second position was the easiest and most simple position to do, as we had a big base to support our balance so we were stable enough to hold the person on top of us.

The thrid position was a very hard one for us to do, we had to try and balance the person who is on us and had to get the timing right. Also it was hard to get both boys to get their feets to touch each other so they are stable enough and have the support from us girls holding them.

What is force summation? 
 Force summation is creating larger force possible, by using different body parts to work together the largest muscles to the smallest muscles.

Describe the three parts of force summation. 
Range of Motion: The greater range of motion you use the better force is produced. Order Of Body Segments: Forces that needs to be transferred from the largest muscles through to the smallest muscles. Timing of Body Segments: Every segment should get going before the previous segment reaches it's peak force.

Describe the activity we completed in the gym and how this related to force summation. 
We had done many activitys that relate to force summation. The first activity we did was where we partnered up with someone and we each take turns at throwing a basketball as far as you can but the first throw we started off by lying down flat on the ground and only use our arms and hands to help give us forces. The first attempt was the hardest one as I was only using my hands and arms. The second attempt was to sit up on the floor, only using our arms, hands and our stomach.The thrid throw was to go on your knees. The only body parts that was active was my hands, arms, stomach and my thighs. This throw was slightly easier as there I was using more muscles to help me throw the ball further. The last throw was standing up. This throw was a much better and easier throw because we were using all of our muscles to help us have forces to throw the basketball far away. The second activity we did was trying to touch the top of the glasswall/window

Projectile Motion- 11PEA

What is Projectile Motion? 
Projectile motion is a form of motion which an object is thrown in the air it becomes a projectile such as shotput ball.

What are the three parts of projectile Motion? 
1: Angle of releases = The average angle when releasing is 45* but it depends on the people and sports.
2: Heigh of releases = The greater the height the further the distance of the object would go.
3: Speed of releases = Having greater speed which causes greater height and distance when releasing an object.

Explain the activity this morning related to Projectile Motion. 

Today we did an activity where we had a bunch of  papers and a rubber band.  We can fold the papers and try to find the best technique in order to get the paper across the room or to aim it for the two hoops that was on the ground.

Three Classes of Levers.

What are the 3 parts? 

The first part of the levers is the  Fulcrum.  The fulcrum  is the point at which the lever pivot.
The second part of the levers is the  Effect.  The effect is the force that is applied to make the object move.
The thrid part of the lever is the Load.  The load is the objects or thing you are carrying.

What are the 3 classes?
1st class of the lever is the seesaw.
2nd class of the lever is the wheeelbarrow.
3rd class of the lever is the arm.
Explain levers in sports. 
In tennis when serving the ball,  the fulcrum is the shoulder and the elbow, the effort is the shoulders that is the force to make the tennis ball move.  The load is the tennis ball.
Explain the activity we completed. 

The activity we completed in class was a activity that helps us understand and identify the 3 classes and 3 parts of the levers.  This activity we cut out three sqaures,  three triangles and three rectangles.  The three sqaures represent the load or (resistance),  the three triangles represent the fulcrum or (pivot)  and the three rectangles represent the effect or (force).  We then planned where each shapes goes that would represent the three classes and parts in levers and stick the three shapes on to a peice of paper.  Then explained the three classes and gave examples.
