We had a special visitor, Mr Cottrell, who came and taught us tennis skills.  

We learnt how to hold the tennis racket correctly.
We hold the end of the racket so we can reach further with our racket.
We hold the racket on top (we put the racket on the ground and pick it up to get our grip right). 

We also learnt to play a forehand shot.
Our feet are sideways
We point with our left hand to where we want to hot the ball
We swing the racket through like an aeroplane and catch in our other hand after we have hit the ball.

Thank you so much Mr Cottrell we had so much fun and can't wait for you to come again so we can learn some more.
