Netball Practice with Emma!

It was a Thursday afternoon and our break time had just finished. Room 20 stood in a straight line, all chattering to the person next to them. We reached our destination which was the netball courts and we were greeted by a lady wearing a bright orange coloured jumper. She introduced herself. Her name was Emma and then she told us what she was here for.

We were at the netball courts because from then on, for five weeks we were going to be having netball skills and drills. Our whole class was participating in this activity and it was really exciting.

First of all we started off with our dynamic stretches.These were pretty simple. I thought they were going to be easy since when I saw Emma doing it, they looked so easy but then I realized how fun they were but also at the same time they were very tiring and breath-taking.

At first we were put into teams and told rules of netball. That was weird because we weren’t going to be playing any games at all. Here are some rules that I learnt:
1. You can’t walk with the ball in your hand.
Consequence: The ball gets given to the other team.
2. You have to stand next to the player with the same position from the other team.

I have learnt a lot of things from these netball sessions. I think that netball is a amazing sport and there are many things you need to learn before you play.
