This week a group of 10 Year 2 children travelled by minibus to Denmead Tennis Club for a Racket Skills Festival on the tennis courts. They were split into two teams and rotated round ten activities.
The children practised forehand and backhand, balancing a tennis ball on a racket, and hitting a ball over a net. Throughout the morning the group displayed great determination, behaviour for learning and enthusiasm for all the activities.
At the end of the festival scores were added up for each activity and one of our teams came third in the tournament. It was a very proud moment for the whole group and they all said how much they had enjoyed the festival.
Well done Fairfield!
