Year 3 are thoroughly enjoying learning how to play tennis in PE this half term.
Today the children practiced their underarm throwing, catching and forehand strokes techniques.
They worked together in pairs using a range of equipment to develop their skills (cones, sponge balls and tennis racquets). They had to throw the ball underarm and let it bounce in front of their partner before hitting it back. The partner had to be ready with the racquet, holding it with two hands remembering the correct grip.
The children developed their hand-eye co-ordination, footwork and continued to worked well in teams. They thoroughly enjoy tennis, getting better and better each week. It’s also lovely to see a bit of healthy competition.
