1101PEA - 1.1_Assessment - Snow Planet

  • Explain the physical activity you participated in.
The physical activity I participated in was a school trip for both the L1 P.E classes to snow planet and physical activity I participated in there was snow boarding which requires some experience, skill and good balance. There were two big groups of our classes one that wanted to ski and one that wanted to snow board ad our snow boarding group got split into two because there were up to three or four instructors for our snow boarding group they taught us how to move with the board, clip the board on and off and stay on the board without tipping backwards or forward I went down many times and did well half and all the others I fell but continued to get up then it was time for the instructors to go they told us that we were to not go any higher until we have proved our self to the teachers that we can do turns and stop with full control I tried to do this but slightly failed the first time by having touch the ground so I didn't hit the wall but the second times I did it perfectly but so I had decided to go up higher using the lift but it was difficult keeping hold of the handle and staying on my board because we were told to leave one foot clipped and the other out. I couldn't manage to keep hold of the handle and keep balance by holding my board down so I gave up and went back down. Shortly after I tried again and was fine until I looked back and slipped and had to let go of the lift then as I was attempting to get hold of it again because they had stopped it it continued moving. Which was when I gave up and kicked by board down the hill in hopelessness and went inside to warm up.

  • 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)
Merit :

- Does their best
- Resourceful and enterprising
- Motivated and reliable in the practical context

  • What were three factors which influenced your participation? and put a + or - beside the three factors to show whether it positively or negatively influenced your participation).
- Challenge +
- Equipment -
- Injury/illness -

  • Explain HOW these factors affected your participation (with specific examples)
Challenge (+) Challenge positively influenced my participation because even though it was a struggle to keep control all the time when snow boarding I fell but got back up knowing that It was going to be a challenge but a challenge that I would accept which increased the amount of my participation.

Equipment ( - ) Equipment negatively influenced my participation because I had brought all the right gear(warm clothes) and even brought my own ski goggles,some gloves and a beanie but the equipment that negatively influenced my participation was the gloves they were not snow gloves they were just sport gloves of some type so when they got wet from all the snow it got to the point where all my fingers were so cold that they went numb so I began to get scared for the sake of the safety of keeping my fingers to I stopped for a bit to get proper gloves which decreased my participation.

Injury/illness ( - ) Injury/illness negatively influenced my participation because I had previously injured one of the fingers on my dominant hand so it was slightly difficult to snow board for ages and make sure I didn't injure it luckily the only bad thing that happened to it was it went numb form all the cold so overall it decreased my participation because I could have potentially done a lot more if my dominant hand was not injured at all.

How could you increase your (or your peers) participation in this activity in the future?

I could have worn the right gloves not had a injured hand on the day and to increase others participation I could have encouraged the people sitting around at the top to just keep skiing or to just keep snow boarding instead of sitting around.

Awesome reflection Jack! I hope you had a fun day learning how to board, even though it was challenging and you were cold/injured. Skiing and boarding is difficult, and you did really well for your first time. :)
