Energy Systems

Energy Systems is when energy operates our bodies, makes our bodies work and move. We normally get energy from food. In Energy systems there are three specific systems. They are ATP-PC, Anaerobic and Aerobic. In ATP-PC, PC stands Phosphate Creatine. This is a body source for energy that are stored in our muscles. ATP-PC is when we do powerful and short moves in a sport, this lasts about 0 - 12 seconds. An example is a spike in volleyball, short but powerful. Anaerobic is when we have enough oxygen in our muscles, for a short period of time, mainly around 12 secs - 2 minutes. An example is the first 2 minutes of a volleyball game. Aerobic is when we need oxygen to last a long period of time in a game. An example for any sport is the whole game.

Fitness Suite Circuit - R13


  • Explain the physical activity you participated in.
The activity we participated in was a Fitness Suite Circuit. We had 8 stations with different fitness tasks. They were, Cycling, Rowers, Lunge Jumps, Bicep Curls, Russian twists, Burpees, Medicine Ball Squats and Agility Zig Zag. We did 2 rounds with 45 seconds each station. The last round was a 20 second station with 1 minutes breaks throughout each station.
  • 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 give myself a Merit because I was prepared and organised by bringing my gear, I worked hard towards my goal which was finish the circuit at a high level, I supported my team mate when she got tired, I showed happy vibes throughout the activity and I did my best by allowing myself to overcome the tired emotions.
  • 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).
Fitness -, Equipment -, Sense of Achievement +
  • Explain HOW these factors affected your participation (with specific examples)
Fitness affected my participation in a negative because I am unfit. This made me get tired super fast, which made me not want to go on with the fitness circuit. I would try my best but then end up taking a rest. An example was when I was doing the burpees. Instead of doing a push up and then getting back up, I stayed on the ground lol. To prevent this more, I will need to have a stronger and better mindset before we begin.
Equipment affected my participation because I brought the wrong clothes. Instead of bringing shorts, I brought track pants. This made my legs hot a lot quicker, which made me sweat more than I should've. By sweating even more, it distracted me from the circuit because I was too busy cooling myself off. An example was when we were cycling, I went to the window instead of cycling lol.
Sense of Achievement affected my participation because I was eager to set and finish a goal I put in my head. That was to finish each station at my best performance. By setting this goal, it made me work hard despite all the distractions, such as sweat and heat. An example was when it was the 20 second round. I went hard out and got the job done.
  • How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future?
To increase my participation I would not only be physically prepared, but also mentally prepared for this kind of Physical Activity. This would help me be ready in 2 ways.

Table Tennis - R12

  • Explain the physical activity you participated in.
The activity we participated in was Table Tennis, but besides playing, we had to set up the table instead. After setting up the table we played 2 v 2 against each other, until we had a winner.
  • 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 give myself a Merit because I was prepared and organised by bringing my gear to PE, I worked hard towards our goal by supporting my class mates when setting up the table, I showed enjoyment in the game while we were playing 2 v 2 and I did my best when there were multiple tasks to do when setting up.
  • 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).
Sense of Achievement +, Challenge +, Equipment -
  • Explain HOW these factors affected your participation (with specific examples)
Sense of Achievement affected my participation in a positive way because I worked towards a goal I set in my head. That goal was to help set up the table within a suitable time, before we could play. By doing this, I was able to help out more and make myself useful for when there was a task that needed to be done. An example was when I helped a friend unscrew a tight bolt, so that we could put the proper one on.
Challenge affected my participation in a positive way because it made me more eager to finish the task. By having an urge to finish this task, it allowed me to participate and help out more. If someone got distracted and wanted to play with the other table tennis, I would take there job so the process wouldn't slow down. By doing this, it made me accept the fact that things go faster and better in a group, not by yourselves.
Equipment affected my participation in a negative way because it distracted me from doing good plays. The distraction came from the fact that there were old bats and new bats. Some bats had less grip than others, which caused the bat to slowly slip out of my hand when playing. An example was when I was going to serve the ping pong, but the ball missed the bat and went into the net, all because of it being unstable.


  • How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future?
Something I would do to increase my peers participation is get them into groups, and give them certain jobs in a situation or task like this. This will allow everyone to give a hand and get the job done faster.

Projectile Motion

Projectile Motion is when a object is travelling through the air or anything in the air. For example, a ball or a javelin being thrown. There are 3 parts to Projectile Motion, and they are the Angle of Release, Height of Release and the Speed of Release. The optimal angle of release is 45 degrees. The higher you are when releasing an object, the longer it will travel. The greater the speed the greater the height and distance will be. When a ball is thrown into the air, there is always a flight path, and that is called trajectory (flight path). The projectile is the object moving in the air, so in a Basketball case, when a shot is done, the basketball is the projectile. The activity we did was shoot paper in the air with rubber bands. We had to figure out what the right amount of paper was (too big = too heavy too small = too light), the amount of power we gave the paper (the further back our rubber band launch was), the angle of where to release it and the distance we stood from the target.

Levers

In a lever there are 3 parts and 3 classes. They are the Fulcrum, Load, Effort, 1st class, 2nd class and 3rd class. For each class there are different examples and different places where each part must go. The fulcrum is the pivot point, the effort is the part of a lever where there is force, and the load is the resistance. Examples for 1st class is a see-saw (the fulcrum is in the middle), 2nd class is a wheelbarrow (the load is in the middle) and 3rd class is our arm (hand = load, muscles = effort, elbow = fulcrum). An example of levers in a sport is Badminton. When hitting a shuttlecock with our racket, the fulcrum is your elbow - this is because your elbow is moving. The effort is our muscles swinging the racket and the load is the racket itself. This is 3rd class, because we are using our arm. The activity we did today was draw out the different parts of a lever, put the load in certain spots on the effort, and figure out where the fulcrum goes. We had to then explain what class each meant and give examples. Here is my activity.

Zumba - R11


  • Explain the physical activity you participated in.
The activity we participated in was Zumba. Zumba is a more of relaxed workout for many people. Music is normally involved with Zumba, this makes it a lot more fun.
  • 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 give myself an achieved because I was organised and prepared for the activity by bringing my gear, I attempted to improve on my skills by doing the moves with enthusiasm, I tried to improve, through practise.
  • 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).
Fitness -, Sense of Achievement +, Previous Experiences -
  • Explain HOW these factors affected your participation (with specific examples)
Fitness affected my participation in a negative because I haven't done Zumba in while. This caused me to be able to only do small movements, which be participate less. If I were to keep my fitness up, my movements would be big and I would be able to do a lot more moves without getting a stitch lol.
Sense of Achievement affected my participation in a positive way because I wasn't wanting to get a Merit for my grade. This made me want to get up and do Zumba confidently.
Previous Experiences affected my participation in a negative way because the was probably my first time doing Zumba - besides Jump Jam. This made me all stiff and small in my actions, making me want to participate less. If I was to know what to do when it comes to Zumba I would enjoy it more and make an effort to participate.
  • How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future? Something I would do to increase my participation is go through some moves before class with my friends to be more confident in an actual class time Zumba.

Badminton - R10


  • Explain the physical activity you participated in.
The activity we played was Badminton. We had 2 players per team and about 5 minutes of playing team before we would rotate.
  • 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 give my a Merit because I worked towards my goal getting a better swing, causing the ball to go straight down, I enhanced the experience of my team mate by letting him get the fast hits because he was better lol, I showed my enjoyment of the game by being cheerful and not being a grump, and I tried my best to win all our games.
  • 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).
Well-being +, Equipment -, Friends/Classmates +
  • Explain HOW these factors affected your participation (with specific examples)
Well-being affected my participation in a positive way because I was in a happy mood. This made me cheerful towards the game even when we had lost a point. I think it's good to always have a happy mood in situations so that positive vibes come out. An example of me being a happy chappy was when I missed a perfect hit, but didn't get angry, I was humble to myself and to the other players on court.
Equipment affected my participation because the shuttlecocks we used were either broken, deformed, or very very light. This caused our hit to be inaccurate. An example was when I served the shuttlecock, but a feather was out of place, making it uneven when going through the air, which made it go either out or in unexpectedly. It also would be hit perfectly with the right power, but still not make it over the net.
Friends/Classmates affected my participation in a positive way because they helped me when I was unable to hit the shuttle. An example was when my racket was in my left hand (knowing I'm right-handed) but my team mate knew it was my weak point so he hit the shuttle instead.
  • How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future? Something I would do to increase my participation is by finding my weaknesses in the game such as hitting with both hands properly, and work on towards it so I could gradually become better at it. This will make me confident and increase my participation.
