Grasshopper Tennis

WALT:  improve our small ball skills like catching, throwing, and hitting. 

Description: We have been participating in a tennis programme with Big John (John Salisbury) from Tennis Manawatu. He has taught us some tennis skills that help with controlling and hitting the ball
Why? To reflect on how we are going with the tennis skills we have learnt. We will share this during our Student Led Conference.
When? Week 8
Who? The World
Task: complete the rubric with targets to show your reflection.

  1. What are you most proud of and why? 
    I am proud of going out there and giving everything a good go even if I found a task that we had to do challenging.
  1. What challenged you the most and Why? 
    One task that I found really hard was when I had to turn the racquet on it's side and bounce the ball onto the racquets side. It was called cut the cheese.

    1. Next time, what is a goal you can work towards?
                      1. Well we did a lot of buddy tasks and one was when we had to grab two tennis racquets and then we had to grab a buddy and that buddy had to hold onto the same tennis racquets as what you were holding. Then what you had to do is grab the ball and through it over the net to the other team and they had to catch it. I found this hard because if the ball was going one way the other buddy went one way and the other buddy went another way!

                                Success criteria:

        Buddy comment: You did a great job achieving most of your goals Hannah! I found slice the cheese a really hard task to! Next time you could have added a bit more detail in your description. TRY and achieve the rest of your goals next term!

        1. It was really tricky to 'slice the cheese'. I think that if you keep your wrists strong it helps. Great reflection Hannah. In your next post you may want to view it to check that it looks how you want it on the page. All the gaps between your writing are not needed.

          Good luck achieving your goal of 'slicing the cheese'.
