On 11th July, 9 children from year 1 and reception took part in a Tennis Festival at the Easton Tennis Centre. We joined together with other schools in the area to take part in a range of activities designed to develop the skills needed to play tennis. The children tried balancing a ball on their racket, floor tennis, throwing and catching games, relay games, bouncing a ball with the racket, and hitting a target over the net.
Mr Mann asked the adults to decide on one member of the school team who had shown the quality of ‘Team work’. We a pupil from Year 1 as she was very aware of the younger members of her team, and helped them when they were finding something tricky.
We had a wonderful morning, and were eager to watch Wimbledon to see some of the skills we have learnt being used in a professional tennis game.
