    Year 12 Physical Education

    Welcome to the Year 12 Physical Education Moodle page.

    This page, in conjunction to your booklets, will provide you with all the information you need for the year's work.

    The course is broken into term based Practical and Theory units. You will predominantly spend 4 lessons on practical and one lesson on theory per week. Make sure you are organised and have the right gear for the right lesson.

    Required PE gear:

    • Triathlon - Swimming gear (dark coloured skins are great), running shoes, singlet or shirt to wear on run leg, towel
    • Volleyball - Red and blacks, running or court shoes
    • AFL - Red and blacks, football boots or running shoes, water bottle, cap or bucket hat
    • Table tennis - red and blacks, running shoes

    If you have any questions, please contact your teacher.

  • Table Tennis

    This terms assessment task asks you to analyse your own table tennis performance to modify an existing training program. The modifications you make must be aimed to improve your performance.

    By taking time now to analyse your own performance you will be able to better improve your performance.

    The unit will be predominantly practically based and you will be responsible for implementing your training program. As a guide:

    • You should be spending at least a third of a lesson on your training program when working in a simple environment
    • Outside of tournament play, use game play as training
    • Warm up and train with a wide variety of players and playing styles
    • Come to each lesson with a plan of what you want to work on
    • Reflect upon the effectiveness of your training and tactics.

    Your response should take into consideration all of the acquired knowledge that you have learnt through the 2 years of the course. As such, there will be limited time spent on learning the acquired knowledge in class time. You will need to revise the particular areas of acquired knowledge that apply to your training program. Your text book and previous class notes should be your main source of information. The areas of acquired knowledge may include:

      • Training program design
      • Principles of training
      • Energy system usage
      • Components of fitness
      • Short term and long term response to exercise
      • Skill acquisition
      • Stages of skill learning
      • Feedback
      • Practice types
      • Biomechanics
      • Sociology of sport
      • Sport psychology
