"We used our skills that we have been improving on in netball to play hand tennis. In netball we have to use chest passes  (our hands need to be placed correctly on the ball)  and in hand tennis we have to make sure our hands (that we use as rackets) are flat and our fingers are closed so the ball does not slip through. We need to make sure that our partner is ready to catch the ball."  Daniel.

 

 

We had class competition and Femi was the CHAMPION!laugh
