Speech: My favourite sport by Nikita

Do you have a favourite sport? I do. I like netball, soccer, softball, swimming and ripper rugby. But my favourite sport is netball and my second favourite sport is soccer. I also like swimming. We all like swimming. Don't you? I love swimming and playing on the soccer field. Sometimes we play in the park. We go and play netball most of the time. For the inter-school we have to go and play netball at the netball court. Our whole class played a sport. I went with the netball team. We had fun. When we went down to the netball courts there were a lot of schools there. It is important to warm yourself up before you play any sport because you can injure yourself. In netball you have to do chest passes to your team mates to warm up. You are not allowed to run with the ball and you not allowed to bump into players. There are 7 players in a netball team. They are goal shooter, goal attack, two wing attacks, two wing defence and centre.

At the end of the netball matches they give out certificates. We lost one game but it was just a game. I really like netball because you don't need to run you can walk but you need to run sometimes. Sports are very important because it keeps you fit, active and healthy. When I grow up I want to play netball for the Silver Ferns. After I retire I shall be a coach for the Silver Ferns netball team. I really love sport.

Wow! I wish I knew what "netball" is. I like sports to. Your country seems to have a lot of neat sports and opportunities. I don't play sports to much anymore, but would like to try again.

OK, I want to learn more about net ball. It sounds fun. Post some pictures of net ball on your next teachers class blog.
