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.
