Friday 1st July saw some children in our Sunflowers room get active as local Tennis coach, Alan Cutts joined us in nursery to share his skills with our pre-schoolers.
Having just finished over seeing the Aeogn Ilkley trophy tennis tournament at the nearby Ilkley Lawn Tennis & Squash Club, Alan was able to take it easy with the little ones as he demonstrated and showed them some basic skills. Alan's son attends the setting so we are grateful to share such an opportunity and have him visit the nursery.
Helping with their physical development, the children enjoyed working in small groups and pairs, taking it in turns and having fun to develop co-ordination with holding a racket and hitting a ball.
I wonder if there will be any rising Tennis champions in years to come?
Alan will be coming into nursery for the next few weeks to work with the children. Keep a look out on the web page for photos showcasing what the children have been doing.
