Grasshopper Tennis

This term, we have had so much fun with Big John! Big John came to teach us tennis skills. It has been tricky, but we sure have made progress over the 4 sessions. Big John has taught us to have fun with a racket and tennis ball. We have tried things like turning our racket into a "race track" to balance and move the tennis ball on it. We pretended that our racket was a trampoline and we bounced the ball on it, clapped and then tried to catch the ball again. We played all sorts of team games too. Thanks Big John!

  1. Grasshopper Tennis sure was fun Juliette! You though Big John was so funny! I did too! Big John made working with a small tennis ball lots of fun, but also achievable. Some of the activities were tricky, but with perseverance, you were getting there. Great!
