2017 Athletics Reflection

Write your reflection on your participation, effort and performance in the 2017 Athletics competitions.

You could reflect on these questions.
  1. How well did I use a growth mindset to stay positive when the competition got tough?
  2. Did I manage to achieve my athletics goals and why/why not?
  3. In what ways did I represent my House well in the competition?
  4. What did I do well and how do I know?
  5. What was challenging and how do I know?
  6. What am I most proud of and why?

Start your writing here:

When I lost at sprints a was so disappointed and was so close to getting third so I just forget about all those stuff and enjoy the rest of the game.  

I didn't manage to my athletics goals because I wasn’t trying my best at athletics.

I represented my house By being resilient and communicate to people

In sprints I know I did well cause I was impressed that I ran so and didn’t go that fast before.

High jump was challenging for me cause the height was 80 cm and I couldn’t jump that high so I didn’t go in the finals.

The thing that i'm most proud of is sprint's cause i was impressed that i ran so fast.
