Risk Management

The following rules are established to aid in making the playing and learning environment safe 

  1. You must call for the shuttle every time you intend to contact it.
  2. During drills the verbal signal “STOP or WHISTLE” will halt action immediately.As will the use of a whistle.The signal “HEADS” alerts players to a shuttle that is flying at someone’s head!
  3. Do not throw a Badminton racquet, or use it for hitting anything other than a shuttle.
  4. Use one shuttle per pair (or individual if a drill requires this), always pick up unused shuttles and return to its container.
  5. Always be aware of the location of the rest of the class i.e. practice smash hits making sure the opponents side of the court is free or your partner is watching the shuttle.
  6. Bring sport’s shoes if you can.

Student Diary (Example of an excellent entry for marking purposes)

What did you do today?                                                     Date:

 Today we had a lesson on learning how to serve a shuttle. At the start of the lesson we went through  individual skills to warm up, this was fun and I am getting better at these skills and games.  We finished the lesson with a fun game where we had to serve into hoop on the other side of the net. 

How did you feel during the lesson? (Tick box activity)

*I was really puffed & tired     

*I was puffed but not too tired

*I felt good I was nice & warm

*It was easy I was not tired at all

*We spent the lesson in the classroom & did not do any physical activity

What Parts of the Lesson did you enjoy?
My favourite part of the lesson was when we were practicing how to serve the shuttle and we had to serve to  our partner across the net and  try to get the shuttle to them without them having to move.
What Parts of the lesson did you not enjoy?
At the start of the lesson it took everyone ages to get the nets out this meant that we had less time to practice our individual skills during the warm up.

Hellison’s Social responsibility level for this lesson (Tick box activity) 

Level 0: Irresponsibility – You were unmotivated, and you behaviour may have included interrupting, verbal abuse, intimidation, and 'putting down' other students.

Level 1: Self-control – You may not have participate fully, but you controlled your behaviour sufficiently so as not to disrupt the rights of other students to learn and participate.

Level 2: Involvement – You were actively involved in the subject matter, and you were willing to try new activities.

Level 3: Self-responsibility – You were able to work without supervision and increasingly you are taking responsibility for their own actions.

Level 4: Caring – You extended your sense of responsibility by cooperating, giving support, showing concern, and helping others. 

Your level of social responsibility for this lesson:   


Why have you given yourself this level for the lesson?
I gave myself this level because I tried to be involved in all the lesson but I didn’t really help anyone else during the class.
