Basketball Tournament

On Thursday 17th November eight Year fives and sixes (Ben, Cate, Finn, Jack, Lily, Oliver, Summer and Rhianna) went to a basketball tournament at Birchwood High School.  There were eighteen primary schools competing.  Our school played five rounds and came 12th overall.  The games were four a-side and lasted five minutes each.  The players on court had to be a mixture of boys and girls, with a maximum of two boys on court at any one time.  The final games of the tournament were four minutes long.

We all played really well and had some very close matches only winning or losing games by one or two baskets.  Even though we didn’t win the tournament overall we all enjoyed ourselves and represented the school with impeccable behaviour and sportsmanship.
