200 Fitness Challenge (8/12 Games)

Today,  we did a 200 fitness challenge with the year 9 PE class.  The exercies we did was 200 squats, 200 sit ups and 20 rounds running around the cone that was 20 meters away.  We each partnered up with a year 9 students and we all participated together.   My partner and I planned to do 20 squats each that way it is easier to count.   We also did the same strategy for the sit up.  My partner was getting tried so I carried it on her behalf.  For the 20 rounds run we decided to do 10 rounds each so that it is much faster than doing five rounds each.

For today's session,  I would put my self on the merit column because I was motivated and reliable in the session.  I was working hard towards my personal goals which was to try and complete the whole sets .  I really showed enjoyment as I love doing fitnesses with other people especially with my class.  I did my best in today's session.

* Friends and classmates gave a positive influence on my participation because everyone was positive towards one another and they were also encouraging each other to keep going.

*  Fun and enjoyment gave a positive effect on my participation because it was fun to do which means there was no negative outcome in today sessions.  It was an very enjoyment sessions because there was positive attitudes and vibes everywhere.

* Challenging was a postive influence in my participation because I made a goal where it was to complete everything.  This challenge turned out very good as I completed it with my partner.

In the future, to increase my peers particpation I need to support and encourage them to keep going when they feel like giving up so that they can feel bright and have a positive mindset towards themself and other.

Sepak Takraw (7/12 Games)


Sepak Takraw is played between two teams of three. There is a volley net between the two teams. For your team to score , you and your team will need to work together and try get the ball across the net but instead of using your arms and hands, the only body part you can use in this game is your head or your legs. The ball they use in Sepak is made out off rattan, it is not the same size as a volley ball but much smaller.

I would put myself on a achieve because I was organised and perpared for the acitivity by getting into my gears on time and helping out to set up the game.  I tried to improve my skills and attempting to improve my level of performance.  For me to improve and get into the merit column,  I need to work hard towards the goal or objective in the activity,  I need to show enjoyment in the activity and to do my very best in every physical activity. 

My skills level is a negitive impact when I was playing Sepak because I had no skills in kicking the ball over the net,  when I served the ball I kicked it but it went out of the game instead of going  over the volleyball net and towards the opposite team.  Previous experience is a negitive impact when playing because I haven't played Sepak Takraw so I wasn't familiar with the game. This made me want to play less because I felt uncomfortable playing.  The positive impact when I participated in playing Sepak was the fun and enjoyment in the game,  this made the game positive and fun because everyone was very supportive.  This positive impact made me want to play more because of the positivity everyone had in the game. 

To increase my participation,  I need to work on being engaged throughout the whole activity and ask questions about the rules if I am not familiar with it.  To increase my participation with my classmates,  I need to encourage them when they need the support so that they can be in high spirits and everyone can have a positive game throughout.

Newton's Law Of Motion (19/06)

Sir Isaac Newton was an English mathematician, astronomer and physicist who formated the laws of motion. In 1686, he present his three laws of motion in the " Principia Mathmatic Philsophie Naturalis."

There are three laws, the first law is interia. Law of interia is stated that every thing remain at rest or stable until it is moved from external force. The second law is Acceleration. Law of Acceleration is caused when a force acts on a mass. The greater mass, the greater the acceleration. (F=M x A) (Force= Mass x Acceleration) The third and final law is the Action/Reaction. The law of action/reaction is the forces of two object interacting . Eg: when you bounce the ball to the wall that is an action. The reaction is when the ball rebounce off the wall and toward you. 

Today we played a game called 'inertia ball', it demonstrated Newton's laws because when we placed all the balls in a line, the balls were at rest which is one of the Newton's laws of motion. We had to use all the balls and use force to be able to move the big exercise ball, this is the second laws.We have learnt that out of all the balls we've used were not able to make the exercise ball to roll faster or further but the only ball that were useful and was able to move the big exercise ball to the other side was the basket ball because of the mass in the basketball . To get the excerise ball to move we had to use the third law of Newton's laws, Action/Reaction. The action when playing was to use our external force to throw the other ball towards the excerise ball. When the ball bounce on the big excerise ball it gave a reaction where it either bounce back to you or it bounce to the side.

1.1 PEA - Ultimate Frisbee (6/12)

  • Explain the physical activity you participated in.

Ultimate Frisbee is like turbo touch but instead of using a ball we use a frisbee.
We had two teams four players in each team, your team need to work together to get the frisbee to the other side of the line where one of your players will be waiting for to catch it in able to score for your team.
  • 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 give myself an 'A' because I was organised before the activity, I was involved in the activity and I tried to improve on my skills. I can also reflect on my performance. For me to get to an 'M', I need to Support the development of others by assisting with their needs when it is required and also enhances the experience of other participants by adding my own input in the acitivty.

  • 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).

Challege = +
Classmates/Friends = +
Environment = - 

  • Explain HOW these factors affected your participation (with specific examples)


I think the challege in the activity was a postive affects on my participation because it helps me to think more on how to get my team to score points also on how to trick the other team for me to be able to have space for my teammates to throw the frisbee. The challeging part was the wind, the wind made it 10 times harder for us to score a point for the team because we have to think as a team to get the frisbee on the other side of the line.


I think the Class was a postive affects in my participation because they made it fun for me to enjoy and play.


I think the environment had gave a negitive impact in my participation because of the wind and coldness.  The wind made it harder for me to catch and hear.  The cold wind made harder because I was very cold to play. 

  • How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future?
For me to increse my participation, I need to support others by giving them feedbacks to help improve their performance.

The Musculoskeletal System 06/06

What are three types of muscles?  Give Example.

  • Trapezius - Trapezius is a muscle on your back that is shaped like a upside down triangel. The Trapezius muscles are to move the scapulae and support the arm.

  • Rectus abdominis - Rectus abdominis known as abs are a pair of long flat muscles that is located in front of the body. The rectus abdominis is an important postural muscle.  It is responsible for flexing when doing sit ups.

  • Latissimus Dorsi - Latisssimus Dorsi is a large flat muscles located at the back of the body that stretches to the sides, behind the arm and is  right below the Trapezius also some muscels is covered by the Trapezius. The lastissimus dorsi is responsible for extension, adduction flexion from an extended position and internal rotation of the shoulder joint.

Describe what agonist and anatagonist muscels are. 

Anatagonist muscels are a muscels that oppose the action of another.  
Agonist muscels contraction moves a part of the body directly. 

As one muscle contracts, the other relaxes.  When the triceps relaxes the biceps contracts to lift the arm.

Examples are below.

What are some movements in the body and examples of the movement in a sport? 

There are many movement in the body when playing sports.  The movement in the arms when throwing or passing a ball or any objects this is called elbow flexion and elbow extension. The movement in the hips and thighs,  it is used when running, jumping, walking and exercising . This movement is called hips flexion and hips extension.  The last movement I can think of is the knees and ankles,  this helps to kick a ball when playing soccer, this movement is called knee flexion and knee extension.  

Choose one activity we have completed in class and describe what your task was.
Whack a bone/ Poke a muscle
This activitiy we played an online game where we have to find the bone when starts. This game helped me to revise because it shows where the bone is and it will make you do it over and over again until you've got them all right.  
Poke a muscle is the same but instead you are poking the muscle,  same rules and everything.   This helps me to remember where all the muscles are it also have placed new muscle everytime you complete to the next level. 
These game were very useful for me as I was struggling to understand where all bones and muscle are in a human body when it was a class discussion.  This game was useful because it was a simple task and because it was a fun game which engaged me to learn where bones and muscle are.
