Lachan's Striking and Fielding Reflection

WALT: Apply Striking and Fielding activities in a range of sports and activities.

My Strengths

The striking strategies I was able to effectively demonstrate during the games we played were……. hit the ball upwards, stand side on.

The throwing and catching strategies I was able to effectively demonstrate during the games we played were……. Cup hand or reverse cup hand.

My Next Steps

To improve my striking of a ball I need to…… work on hitting the ball a little bit harder because…… then i have more time to get a home run.

To Improve my catching and fielding I need to…… grappling onto the ball because…… then it will just fall out of my hands.

The game that I enjoyed the most was…… rounders because…… we got to do both striking and fielding.
