For the first 2 weeks, Rm 21 have been playing netball. There are a lot of people that like playing netball, and I’m one of them! When you’re playing netball, you have to co-operate with your team or you won’t win. If you listen and try your hardest, you will succeed.

There were some techniques that we all had to learn. They were passing, pivoting, intercepting, attacking and defending. It sounds hard and it looks hard, but when you play it, it’s not that bad. Netball is just like basketball but theres no bouncing and running.

In every game, there has to be an instructor, so our instructors name is Liz. She is the one who showed us all of the skills and drills. We also played a game. The aim of the game was that you had to mirror what your partner was doing. There was another one that was called Netball tiggy.

Standing in the hot sun was very tiring so when we finished, I was dying for very cold water. Instead we had fruit. The fruit calmed me down and it was so refreshing that I wanted to beg for another. That was so fun!!
