Spikeball - R2

  • Explain the physical activity you participated in.
Spike Ball is a game where Volleyball and Tchoukball are combined. The purpose of the game is to spike the ball onto a round trampoline and catch it before it touches the ground. If it isn't caught the point goes to your opposition. You 2 players per team, you can pass the ball to your team mate within 3 passes, just like a game of Volleyball.

  • 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 the things I did during the game relate to the marking criteria. For example I showed 'Attempting to improve my level of participation' (learning how to pick up the ball with the hockey stick before we started the game), 'Contributing to the team by taking up a role or functional person' (being a guard for our team), 'Demonstrating skills related to the activity' (showing the basics of hockey when hitting the ball), 'Being organised and prepared for the activities' (bringing my gear for Spikeball).

  • 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).
Friends/Team-mates -, Previous Experiences -, Fun and Enjoyment +
  • Explain HOW these factors affected your participation (with specific examples)
Friends/Team-mates affected my participation in a negative way because they weren't playing the actual game. They were doing their own thing shooting hoops. This affected my participation because I wasn't able to play and learn how to play. An example was when we versed Jayden and Ivan, they were messing around with the ball, shooting hoops instead.
Previous Experiences affected my participation in a negative way because I had no skills in this game what so ever. This affected me because I kept on asking questions to understand more. This wasted my playing time. An example was when we played our first game, but I didn't get to play because, I was too busy asking questions.
Fun and Enjoyment affected my participation in a positive way because it was new, but I accepted to learn how to play. This affected my participation because even though it was hard to latch on it was fun to pick up the rules and how it is played. An example was when we played Charday and Miss Dougherty, we all were learning but it still was a fun game when we played to the rules.
  • How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future?
To increase my participation in Spikeball is to learn how to play the game well, be fit, and also teach other's who don't know how to play, play. This will increase it because I will have at least some skills when playing, which is what I didn't have when playing this game.

I like how you have included a picture for this reflection, makes it that little bit more interesting! Did we play the full version of the game, or a modified version? Although this was a new game for you, and initially you found the game difficult to understand, I am unsure you were only an Achieved.. reminder to use the success criteria and relate specifically to that. You have explained how those factors impacted on your participation much more in depth than your Chopsticks reflection - this is awesome because it is the important part. Your examples back up what you are saying too, making your reflections easy to read and understand. How do you think you could have increased others participation, particularly when this negatively affected your participation? Looking forward to future posts, a reminder to use the labels we discussed in class. Miss D
