On a sunny Tuesday morning Room 5 got ready for some tennis in the courts. We stood up and ambled carefully to the yellow line and then the pole and then the courts. Marcel told us to move the ball around the racket and bounce it backwards and forwards. Marcel blew the whistle and we put our rackets and ball up, with our hands up. Marcel threw the ball down on the floor and it bounced like a frog on his racket and Marcel blew the whistle again. We wore barefoot or sport shoes or sandals.
We sat down noisily and listened to what Marcel said. We played some boring games with a partner and then went to stand on the side of the net.
We started the game and it was called “Queens and Kings” We got into a line and started playing it beautifully with our shiny rackets holding it with our left or right hand. Miss Mat took photographs of people in each group.
Meanwhile, Marcel blew the whistle to take us back to class. We had a lovely tennis lesson.
