This half term Year 4 are focusing upon Tennis. In the first lesson, we explored different throwing and catching skills including throwing from one hand to the other and throwing the ball up, clapping and catching the ball.
We then tried different individual skills using a tennis racket and tennis ball- bouncing the ball down to the floor and up on our racket. Some of us even managed to bounce the ball and twist our racket too!
We explored the technique involved in forehand and practised this from a feed made by our partner.
Across the unit we then developed our shot knowledge including the backhand, volley and serve. We looked at the techniques involved in these and then performing them in a rally and in a game situation.
