Year 4

Net Games - Returning 'Throw, Clap, Catch' - Using a small ball, tennis ball or rolled up socks, can you throw the object in the air and catch it. Attempt to throw the object above your head. Can you clap your hands together while the object is in the air before you catch it? How many claps can you do while the object is in the air and still manage to complete a catch? 'React' - Stand facing a wall or a partner with a small ball or tennis ball. Throw the ball against the wall and as it rebounds behind you, how quickly can you react by turning and chasing the ball? If working with a partner they can throw the ball over your shoulder for you to react and chase after it. Can you get to the ball before it stops rolling? 'Tennis Backhand' - The backhand is a stroke that is used in tennis but is generally not as powerful as the forehand. Can you practice the backhand with a 'mock hit' (swing the racket, frying pan or a book without hitting a ball) using the backhand stroke technique. After a number of mock hits, use a wall or a partner to bounce the ball towards you and attempt to backhand stroke it back in the same direction.
