  1. They are making a video of everyone catching a ball and throwing it to the next person. Get your mum or dad to film you catching a tennis ball from the left and throwing it to the right. Ask your mum or dad to go onto the 'Friends of St Joseph's Rugeley PTFA' to see where they should send the video if they can. Don't worry if you can't do this, it's just a bit of fun that the PTFA are having.
