Volleyball- a big challenge for 8C

This term we have started to learn how to play Volleyball during P.E. Volleyball is a big challenge for 8C because it is completely different compared to other sports. In most games that include a ball you are supposed to catch the ball before you make the next move but in Volleyball you can't catch the ball. The main techniques you need to know is how to set, dig and serve. Here is a movie of us playing Volleyball without the net:

You can see that we are all supporting each other while we are still learning but mostly we are having heaps of fun.

  1. Okay I have a question - you are practising outside of the office? At your school do you not have a court or gym that you could have used?

    1. Yeah we have really good sports facilities but we think Mrs Taylor liked the nice day outside and I don't think we are very good and she didn't want us to hit the lights.
