1101PEA - Turbo Touch

  • Explain the physical activity you participated in.
The physical activity I participated in today was Turbo touch there are many different ways and rules of playing this game but these are the rules and how we decided to play the game. How to play the game you use a rugby ball and you are able to pass any where you want as long as the ball does not touch the ground. There are two try zones on either sides of the court or field you play on each try zone is a rectangular shaped space horizontally placed along the court/field. That is how you play the but here are the rules. You must make sure you pass at least twice before scoring and to score you must run the ball up to the line and place it in the try zone with out entering it or you can pass it in to a team mate standing by the try zone. You must tap the ball before starting You can only be touched twice then you must hand the ball over and if you drop the ball it is a hand over and you must be two metres away from the person tapping the ball if on the defending team.

Projectile motion_1101PEA

What is projectile motion ?

Projectile motion is the motion that is made by a projectile that is propelled by a projector of sorts which is usually things such as sports balls, bullets, arrows,people,planes/helicopters and any other object that is either thrown or propelled into the air and has a flight path.














What are the three parts of projectile motion ?

Height of release - for things like sports(shot put) the height of an athlete can effect the projectile motion of the shot put. For example if two athletes were to throw a shot put at the same height, angle and speed but one was much taller than the other the taller athlete's shot put would travel a longer distance

Angle of release - The angle of release is also in-cooperated into projectile motion because for shot put if an athlete through a shot put at two high of an angle (for example 45 degrees) the shot put would not go it's full potential of distance. The recommended angle of release for a shot putter is in between 31 - 38 degrees because at this angle the shot put has the potential to go it's maximum distance with also the right amount of height and speed.  

Speed of release - The speed of release is also important because for a sport like badminton the speed of release must be much lower to sports such as volleyball because the projectile (shuttlecock) is much lighter than any other projectile used in sport. But the speed of release is important because even for badminton you need to make sure you use the right amount of speed for every hit to find a way to score.

Explain the activity this morning relating to projectile motion.

The activity we did this morning was that our teacher gave us a rubber band and a piece of paper and told us to try propel the piece of paper using the rubber band and that we could screw up, rip up and fold the paper any way we wanted to and try get the paper as far across the room as possible. But most of us didn't succeed in doing it the right way by tilting it up to change the angle of release and to change the height of release as well as the speed of release.

11 PEA Newton's Laws of Motion


  • Who is Isaac Newton ? - The professor/scientist that created the 3 laws of motion to help understand and explain motion and what happens to objects and motion.
  • Explain the 3 laws ? 
  1.  Law of inertia - The process of an object that is not moving or moving at a constant speed. Then another force applied that makes a stationary object move or accelerate the speed of a moving object.
  2. Law of acceleration - The process of an object accelerating from a force applied to make it move (example) F=MxA force = mass x acceleration. The more mass, the more force, the more acceleration and the more distance an object is propelled.
  3. Law of action/reaction - The process where an object has an action then a equal and opposite reaction the more force applied the greater the action and greater the reaction (example) throwing a ball at the wall the ball being throw is the action then it bouncing off the wall ad back to you is the reaction.  


  • How did the game inertia ball demonstrate Newton's Laws ? - The activity we did which was Inertia Ball demonstrated the 3 laws by.    
Law 1 - The inertia of the flex ball was being affected when we were throwing the other balls at it because the forces from the balls being thrown was pushing the ball across the rec.
Law 2 - The acceleration of the flex ball was being increased when we were throwing the basketballs at it because they were the heaviest and had the most mass F=MxA force = mass x acceleration.
Law 3 - There were actions and reactions when we threw the balls(action) and they hit the flex ball which propelled it to accelerate and the balls flew away in different directions(reaction).

1.1 Reflection - Ultimate Frisbee


  • Explain the physical sport you participated in 
The physical sport I participated in is called Ultimate Frisbee. It is a game where there are two opposing teams and a Frisbee that is used to score the aim of the game is to throw the Frisbee to a team mate that is standing over the line and for them to catch it which this is how you score. The rules to this game are simple there are two out lines on either side if the Frisbee is not caught by your team mate when thrown then it is a hand over. The Frisbee can also be intercepted by an opponent catching the Frisbee but if they fail to do so and only smack it out of the air then it is still the team that threw it's ball these are the basic rules to Ultimate Frisbee.

  • What level of effort and engagement was I participating at during today's physical activity?Why(Grade your self NA,A or M and refer to marking criteria)
I would give myself a M level of effort and engagement because I worked hard towards the goal or objective of the activity. I showed enjoyment of the activity when our team was doing well even though there were struggles with weather being too windy. I was also motivated and reliable in the practical context because I was motivated to win and score and was a reliable part of my team. I as well as seek to improve my performance through development of skills, well-being and fitness.

  • What were three factors that influenced my participation (positives/negatives -/+)?
+/positive - past experience - In previous lessons we have played this game and we withdrew a lot of enjoyment from it.

-/negative - challenge/environment - A negative influence for me was that the environment made playing the game a challenge because the Frisbee would go flying everywhere.

+/positive - equipment - A positive influence was that I brought all my gear even though I still wore a singlet out in the wind on the field.

  • Explain how these factors effected my participation (with specific examples)
these factors effected my participation by making me want to play because I like a challenge even though the environment was cold and windy. It was also an alright game because we had previous experiences just inside instead of outside. But over all I participated at my fullest.

How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future ?
remind myself as well as my peers to not only bring their PE gear but bring PE gear appropriate to the whether.

Balance and Stability



Questions :


  • What are the three parts of balance and stability ?
COG - centre of gravity
LOG - line of gravity
BOS - base of stability
  • How can someone increase their balance and/or stability ?
By lowering your centre of gravity/COG,widening 
your base of support/BOS and making sure your 
line of gravity/LOG is in your base of support.
  • Describing my task 
The other day my class did this activity but I did not because I was away the activity was that they were given pictures of poses that they had to recreate which are the pictures in the slides. Today's task was to put them into a slide and write down the COG,LOG,BOS onto the images with lines and the COG being a circle in the middle. The COG,LOG,BOS was colour coded like this as well. I also enjoyed this activity and found that none of it was necessarily difficult.

Skeletal System - Jack


What are the roles of the skeletal system ?
The roles of the skeletal system are.
- Support our weight
- protect our vital organs
- to keep us up right and able to stand and function

What are the types of bones ?
There are 3 main types of bones in your body they are.
- short bones - these bones are mainly Carpals/Tarsals, Metacarpals/Metatarsals and Phalanges
- flat bones - these bones are mainly scapula, ribs, sternum, cranium and pelvis
- long bones - these bones are mainly humerus, ulna, radius, femur, tibia and fibula

What was this activity ?
Explanation - This activity was one that we did in a group with our class mates our teacher told us and allowed us to grab anything we wanted to make a skeleton look a like out of the equipment from the school P.E shed we had five minutes to do so we had used all this equipment to form our groups skeleton in the image above with labels included help what each piece of equipment stood for and why it was placed there.  


The Muscular Skeletal System

Muscular Skeletal System :


  • What are the three types of muscles ? (Examples)   
  1. Cardiac - (Example) Heart
  2. Smooth - (Example) Intestines 
  3. Skeletal - (Example) Biceps brachii
  • Choose one activity we have completed in class and describe what your task was
  1. Kahoot : for kahoot we revised the bones and skeletal muscles I worked with my two class friends paris and brodie.
  • Describe what agonist and antagonist muscles are 
  • What are some movements in the body and examples of the movement in a sport ? 
     Example/Sport movement - Pull ups

Agonist - Biceps brachii is the agonist in this movement because the biceps brachii is contracting/shortening. This muscle is the agonist when pulling up (elbow flexion) which is when you pull your body up by bending/contracting your arms(this is elbow flexion) and pull your chin over the bar.

Antagonist - Triceps brachii is the antagonist in this movement because the triceps brachii is extending/lengthening

PPDAC cycle - Temperature & Ice-creams sold

I learned that your variables are one of the most important things about your measurements and the PPDAC cycle as well as your data. And what you use to measure these are your table and graphs.

Goal 1 - Listening to the teacher

Goal 1 :

Listening to the teacher. I will listen to the teacher so that I will get every piece of information about the sport that I need to play. If there are parts that don't make sense I will ask and not be shy because no questions is a dumb question unless I do not follow my goal at all and ask "what are we doing ?" after the teacher just explained. This will be my goal for the year.

Goal 2 - team decisions

Goal 2 :

Team decisions. I am going to apply my self to the appropriate team when doing sports or activities in my  practical periods for my PE class. How i'm going to do this when we are about to pick teams for a sport and instead of going on my friends team. I am going to go on the team that has either not as great players or an uneven/less than team. Same thing for as if there are two teams one with all the good players and one with the not so good players I will go on the bad/not as capable team to try my best to make it even. This will be my goal this year.

  • My previous experience with blogging is that it was a way to express our learning and our thoughts on that specific subject.

           How do you think blogging impacts on your learning ?
  • I think blogging impacts on my learning by showing what I've learnt and getting to express it in a way where everyone can learn about what I have and even give me credit or comments on what I have completed or accomplished.

           How I feel about blogging ? why ?

  • I feel that blogging is a good way of identifying what I/we have been learning and it leaves what I/we have learnt through the year and that we could come back to our blogs to look back on our hard efforts.
