This half term, we are developing our understanding of netball as a game and the skills required to be successful. We started off by discussing the rules of the game and practised the various passes we could use - chest, shoulder, overhead, bounce. We talked about how you can't move with the ball and how you only have three seconds to pass it on! We then learnt more about how to shoot into the net and how to hold the ball using the W pattern with our fingers. We discussed how to bend at the knees in order to gain momentum when pushing the ball upwards and then practised this using our nets. We have also started to play some games in small teams!
