It's been a bit of a scorcher this week!
We have continued our unit of tennis.
We chose the level we wanted to work at, so that we didn't overexert ourselves and get too hot in the sun. We made sure that we moved into the shade, taking lots of rest stops and drinks
We took the racquets and balls on to the field and top car park. We practised rolling the ball around the racquet, keeping control and balance and we bounced the ball on the racquet. We also bounced the ball off the floor.
Years 1 to 4 continued on from last week, hitting and returning the ball in pairs. We flicked the ball off the racquet, let it bounce before our partner caught it on their racquet. Then we were able to move on to hitting the ball to our partners.
Years 5 & 6 continued working on our rallies, making sure that we kept control of the ball and didn't over hit. If we needed, we bounced the ball several times to regain control before we returned it to our partners.
We had so much more control than last lesson! Great job!
Have a lovely weekend!
