Athletics 1.1

Blog 5: 26.2.14 – Merit

Today we did long jump and triple jump on the fields. Two factors that affected my performance were social environment and weather.

The social environment affected my performance because when I jumped I wanted to get a better score than my friends, so we all tried a little bit harder than we would have if it was just us by ourselves.

The second factor that affected my performance was the weather, because it was a bit cloudy and grey so it wasn’t too hot and we could still focus on what we had to do. If it were sunnier or hotter, it would have been harder to focus and gets the results we got.

Overall I think it was a good lesson, and I enjoyed it.

Active participation

Two factors that influenced my performance were the social environment and fun.

The social environment was a factor because I didn’t really know anyone in my group so I didn’t involve myself as much as I normally would have done. I think over the next few weeks when everyone gets used to each other it will be a lot easier because we will understand how everything works and what everyone is like, and how to act around them. For example if there was someone in my group that was really shy and didn’t want to participate, we’d understand that they just needed help to get involved, and make sure they didn’t miss out just because they were shy.

The second factor was enjoyment and fun which affected my performance because I enjoyed myself a lot more than I had originally thought. The games we played were fun and I got to meet new people which in turn affected the social environment factor.

Next lesson I will try to get more involved with my group, and try my best with all of the activities. I want to get out of my comfort zone a bit and go into groups with people I don’t really know because I always just stick with my friends.
