Church of England Primary School

Small school, big hearts. Wise, Responsible and Kind like the Good Samaritan.

During Term 3, we have been playing tennis in one of our PE lessons. The children have been learning ball control through different activities inclduing balancing the ball on the racket whilst moving at speed around the playground. They have learnt the difference between forehand and backhand; they practised passing the ball on the ground between pairs at first, then moved on to passing it between them with one bounce and passing it over a net. We have been talking a lot about controlling the ball - it's not about hitting it as hard as you can, but about controlling where it goes, how far and how fast. Lots to think about!
