Levers


Today we did an activity about levers, a lever is made up of three parts effort, Load/resistance and fulcrum.
The fulcrum is like the pivot point of the lever, the effort is the forces applied and the Load is the thing that needs effort to be applied.
There are 3 classes,
 class 1 a example is an seesaw
 class 2 a example is an wheelbarrow
 class 3 a example is an arm
Lever I are used a lot in sports for example badminton, When you hit the shuttlecock with the racket your fulcrum is your hand, the efforts is your muscles in your arm used to swing the racket and the shuttlecock is the load.
In the activity we did we had to cut out and colour in shapes and had to label them, the green was effort the yellow was fulcrum and the purple was the load. We then had to shape them into each of the classes and then we had to explain why it was that class.

Zumba reflection


  • Explain the physical activity you participated in. Today we participated in an activity called Zumba. Zumba is sort of an work out to get you pump up and relax you body, It is like a dance and you can try and dance to any song you want.
  • 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 achieved because I was prepared and organised and brought my gear. I also tried to improve my skills by following the dance moves on the screen and demonstrated my skills by showing my accurate dance moves.
  • 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 -friends/classmates -Previous
  • Explain HOW these factors affected your participation (with specific examples) Well-being affected my participation in negative way because we just came back from the holidays so I was still tired and it made me not want to join in. Friends/classmates affected me in negative way because I would sometime see them not dancing and sitting down so it made me want stop and sit down and made me not want to participation. previous experience affected me in a negative way because I didn't know what zumba was then my teacher said it was like dancing and made me not want to do it.
  • How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future? I think I could increase my participation by getting more involved with the activity and try and get my friends to try and participate and more energised.

Badminton reflection



  • Explain the physical activity you participated in. The activity we played today was badminton, we had a team of two and played around 5 minutes for each opponent before we rotated. If you don't know what badminton is it is similar to tennis where you have to try and hit the ball over the net, but in badminton you have to use an different racket and the thing you hit was an shuttlecock.
  • 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) If I had to grade myself today I would have given myself an merit. I gave myself an merit because I would always motivate my teammate kori by cheering him on every time he got a point. I would also give myself an merit because I help my teammate a lot by showing him to hit the shuttlecock.
  • 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/teammate +previous experience - equipment
  • Explain HOW these factors affected your participation (with specific examples) Friends/teammates affected my participation in a positive way because my teammate was my friend kori and we would always hype each other up so it made me want to play more. Previous experience affected my participation in a positive way because I never played badminton before so it me more eager to play. Equipment affected my participation in a negative way because so of the nets were broken and the shuttlecocks were broken so it would someones go off to somewhere else which made want to play less
  • How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future? To increase my participation I think that I need to try and learn how to play more so that I can get better and help my teammate out more and show him things so that I can help him improve.

Force Summation

What is Force summation? Force summation is made up of 3 parts, but the all together is means adding forces together to create the greatest force as possible.

Describe the three parts of force summation? The three parts of force summation are range of motion, order of body segments and timing of body segments.
Range of motion is the greater the range of motion the greater force produced. 
Order of body segments is when forces is transferred from the largest muscles, through to the smallest muscles. 
Lastly is timing of body segments is when each body segment should be activated when the one before it has reached its peak.

Describe the activity we completed in the gym and how this related to force summation? 
The activity we did in the gym was on the rowing machine we were giving a task to go step by step for a full row. We went from only using only our hand to using our full body. This activity showed us that the more motion we use it will generate more force. This activity used all parts of force summation like order of body segments, if you want to produce the greatest force we had to start from you legs and all the way up to your arms. if I started from somewhere else it wouldn't be the same.

200 challenge reflection



  • Explain the physical activity you participated in. The physical activity that I participated in was an 200 challenge, we had to get into a group of 2, our challenge was to do 200 squats, 200 sit ups and o do 20 laps to the cone and back.
  • 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) Today I thought that I would grade myself an merit. I gave myself an merit because I would always seek to help and improve my teammate, Like when he was doing squats wrong so I would have to show him how to do. I would also give myself an merit cause I was motivated to try and finish the full 200 and gave it 100% of my best.
  • 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 -Fitness
  • Explain HOW these factors affected your participation (with specific examples) Challenge affected my participation in a positive way because 200 squats and sit ups to me and I had never done that before so I thought that it was challenge for me to try and complete the full 200. Sense of achievement affected me in a positive way because as I said 200 was a lot for me and I thought I could do it so when we did it, it felt I had accomplished something and felt like I could do more. Fitness affected my participation in a negative way because I am really unfit so when I was doing the challenge I got tired fast and decreased my participation.
  • How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future? I think that I could increase my performance by training more in my spare time so that next time I do challenges like this it will be easy.

Sepak Takraw


  • Explain the physical activity you participated in. Sepak takraw is a famous sport played in the Philippines, it is a sport similar to volleyball but you are not allowed to touch the ball with you hands, you can only touch the ball with you feet, chest and head.
  • 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) If I had to grade myself I would give me an merit. I gave myself a merit because I would all support my teammates by yelling mine, or Kori's, or Autymn name, so that they knew who ball it was and so we all didn't go for the ball at once. I also would give myself an merit because it was hard to kick the ball straight so I would try and find new ways to kick the ball and ways to return it so I could get better, and gave 100% of my ability.
  • 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). -Skill level +Previous experience -Equipment
  • Explain HOW these factors affected your participation (with specific examples) Skill level affected my participation in a negative way because I wasn't really good at the game and couldn't kick the ball properly, so every time I kicked the ball it would go of into another direction and the other team would get a point. Previous experience affected me in a positive way because I had 0 experience of the game, so it made me more eager to play the game and learn something new. Equipment affect my participation in a negative way because some of the balls where flat and when we would tried and kick the ball it would it would bounce high and go over the net.
  • How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future? To increase my performance I think that I need to try and get my team to learn new things so that they know of to play better. I also think that I need to find knew ways to improve my skills so that I can get more confident,

Newtons Law of motion



  • Who is Sir Isaac Newton? Sir Isaac Newton is a scientist and philosopher who live around the 16 and 17 century. Sir Issac Newton is the person who created the laws for why things move and what cause its to move. They are called Newtons law
  • Explain the 3 Laws? There are three laws which makes up the Newton laws of motion. The first one is called The law of inertia states that an object will be at rest or stay in a constant motion unless it is compelled by an external force. Law two, The law of acceleration, this law explains how the velocity of the object changes, so the law acceleration states that the greater the mass of an object the more force it will take to accelerate the object, Force = mass x acceleration (F=mxa) Law Three, The law of Action/Reaction, This law states that for every actions there is an equal and opposite reaction. For example imagine an trampoline, The action is you pushing down on the tramp and the reaction is the tramp pushing you back up the tramp.
  • How did the game ‘inertia ball’ demonstrate Newton’s Laws? The game inertia ball demonstrated the newtons law a lot. The game demonstrated the law of action/reaction because when we threw the ball at the ball it would react and would bounce back to us. The game also demonstrated the law of inertia because if when we didn't throw balls and the moon ball is would stay in a constant motion going in its direction until it was hit by another ball. The game also demonstrated the law of acceleration because the amount of force on the ball depended the size of the ball, so when we threw the basketball we need more force to throw it because it was the ball with the most mass.
