Big john is fun. He taught me a lot of techniques that have helped me to discover the fun of tennis.
Description: we all did really well at tennis and I did as well. We used different skills do these activities like: temple tap down, lobster glue, the lobster game ect. We have been participating in a tennis programme with Big John (John Salisbury) from Tennis Manawatu. He has taught us some tennis skills that help with controlling and hitting the ball.
Why? To reflect on how we are going with the tennis skills we have learnt. We will share this during our Student Led Conference.
When? Week 8
Who? The World
What are you most proud of and why: I am most proud of my race track because I got the balance of the ball to stay to the edge of the racquet.
What challenged you the most and Why: in tennis the activitie that challenged me the most has to be the slice the cheese because it always slipped past the edge of the racquet and that made it hard to make it hit the slim bit of the racquet without it slipping away.
Next time, what is a goal you can work towards: my goal is to work on the lobster glue because me and my partner for the lobster glue ( Emma D ) kept missing the ball because our feet didn't want to go the same way so we ended up tripping over eachothers legs.

Buddy feedback & feedforward:
Wow Olivia. You have lots of greens and oranges but no reds! You are a much better tennis player than me. What I think you need to work on is trying to controll the ball a bit more. Aye
My Comment: I like the way I persevered in tennis to get the goals I needed what I could work on is my balance with the ball on my racquet.
