Interclass Basketball 2010
Key Stage 2 Interclass Basketball Competition
After challenging themselves in the individual sport of the Aquathlon earlier in the week the Key Stage 2 students began the second part of their exciting week in PE. It was time for team spirit and team work as the Interclass Basketball competitions got under way. During Interclass Basketball the students compete in either a girls’, boys’ or mixed team against the other classes that normally have PE at the same time.
The Year 6 competition was up first. The students demonstrated the game play they had been working on in PE lessons such as man-to-man defence and lay up’s. The year 6 competition was fast and furious end-to-end action. Special mentions go to and Kallista Shatrov 6T for great shooting, Sammy ‘the lay-up king’ Wright 6E and Serri Matula 6O on a great all round performance.
The Year 4 competition took place on Thursday. This is the first time students are allowed to shoot into the basket and they also use a size 5 basketball. All the Year 4 teams played well and displayed good sportsmanship. A special mention goes to Arnav Jhaveri 4G for his amazingly accurate shooting.
Friday saw the Year 3’s and 5’s take the court. The year 3’s play a modified form of basketball called mat ball where they attempt to pass the ball down the court to a player standing in a zone on a mat. If the player catches the ball on the full whilst staying on the mat their team receives a point. The students competed with lots of energy and displayed some excellent passing and throwing skills. Tumi Pentilla and Emilie Heiskanen 3B combined for some super long range passing. Year 5 were almost as excited as their teachers about the tournaments and played with growing tactical awareness and understanding. The students displayed good defence showing what they knew about returning to their half and rebounding strongly under the basket. Year 5S deserve a mention after achieving the clean sweep in their group.
A big thank you to all the Primary PE and swim team for their help in organising and refereeing, the parents for their enthusiastic support and lastly for the children for their enthusiasm, good sportsmanship and hard work. Well done all.
