W/c 1st February 2021


Write a couple of sentences in your own words explaining what is meant by the term ‘Motivation’.

Main Task

Read through slides 24-28 on the powerpoint (located in Teams) to familiarise yourselves with the different types of motivation. Once you’ve done this I want you to interview any family members about what might have motivated them to take part in sport either in the past or present. If this is not possible then try and think about your own levels of motivation to play sport or be physically active and make notes as to either what does or doesn’t motivate you to willingly participate.

Plenary (end task)

Think about external ways in which people can be rewarded for their sports performance. It could be anything ranging from swimming certificates for young children to end of season awards. Write a short paragraph explaining whether you think rewarding people is an effective form of motivation or not and state why.
