  Am I doing enough?

                              Learning Outcomes

Perform a range of aerobic and anaerobic exercises with control, accuracy, and
sound technique. Understand how these impacts on your fitness and health.

Pace their effort well to meet the needs of a range of activities by understanding
their own fitness needs and levels.

Pupils identify what they need to do to improve their own fitness.

Identify strengths/weaknesses in their own and others’ performances, and select
an appropriate focus for improvement. Explain how the exercise they are using will
affect performance.

During this project we would like you to be able to identify the differences
between Physical Activity and Leisure activity, find out how much time you spend
on each of these and analyse the effects that they will have on your general health
and fitness.
