This half term in PE we will be focusing on tennis. We started our new focus last week, building on skills learned in previous years, and will continue to build on these until the end of term.
We started last week by focusing on using a forehand shot, playing games that involved placing shots with the correct power and accuracy to hit a target. This week, we looked at using a backhand shot too. We made sure that we were following the techniques needed to successful place a shot with accuracy and return the ball to our partner. By using these skills successfully, we are building towards being able to sustain rallies.
Over the next few weeks we will push to hone our tennis skills and look to add a more competitive element into our lessons and learning.
