Primary Physical Education: 

Basketball Bonanza

Primary “Tip Off” Another Action Packed Sporting Year with a Basketball Bonanza

On Friday 11th September 75 young Patana Basketball stars who had signed up this terms ECA accepted the opportunity to play in our inaugural Basketball Bonanza with 22 boys from Shrewsbury joining us on our back hard courts between 2.45 and 4.30pm. The idea behind the event was that we felt we wanted an inclusive event to kick start our Primary sporting calendar. It certainly ticked all of the right boxes with 8 boys teams involved with no less than 6 from Patana and 3 Patana girl teams testing their skills in a fun and exciting introduction to the competitive game.

All of the squads improved greatly during the afternoon as the children began to make better decisions and gel as teams on the court. It was particularly pleasing to see a lot of first timers picking up the rules and relishing the heat of friendly competitors in such a positive and sporting manner. Special mention should go to the Winyards with Benedict from Year 4 joining the event as an already confident performer and Gregory from Year 8 who took up the challenge of coaching his brother’s team to 3 wins out of 3.

A huge thank you to all of the children who accepted the challenge from Patana and Shrewsbury to play and to the many parents who came to support. Also thank you to Mr. Chris and Miss Gibson who did a sterling job of coaching along with myself during the afternoon.

I hope to see everybody taking the chance to enjoy a little extra practice during their break and lunchtimes on the back hard court!

Mr. Andrew Tatam

Head of Primary Physical Education
