Lunchtime Intra-school Basketball 2018
The KS2 Basketball lunchtime clubs during the Spring term at Marshgate Primary School provided the children with the fantastic opportunity to develop their skills and take part in weekly Basketball competitions. It has been a privilege to see each session filled with enthusiasm and sportsmanship throughout.
The children who took part in the Year 3 Basketball lunchtime club showed a real enthusiasm for the Sport, with great teamwork on display each week. Similar to the previous lunchtime clubs, the end of term Basketball competition was a closely fought contest with each game going to the wire and decided by a great team move. Well done to the Year 3 children who have all shown brilliant progress from the first to the last week.
The Year 4 Basketball lunchtime club provided excellent matches throughout with every child trying their best. The quality of play was great to see in which there were outstanding individual and team performances on display. The competition within the last week provided end to end action, with the wining team earning victory in the last seconds of the match. It was a pleasure to see that the Year 4 children played each game with big smiles on their faces!
The Basketball lunchtime club for Year 5 was played in a competitive and fast-paced manner. Pupils showed great leadership throughout whilst also showing respect for each other. This was especially clear during the mini competition where the Year 5s displayed many examples of excellent passing and moving. The games were close encounters as they always are with Year 5 and the winning team held their nerve to claim victory. Well done to all those involved.
The Year 6 Basketball lunchtime club took place with great team spirit in which all teams were gracious in both victory and defeat, showing a lot of respect for each other. The weekly mini-competitions provided plenty of high scoring games as the teams turned defence into attack with their team play. Well done to the Year 6s who took part in Basketball this term!
The children incorporated February’s and March’s values of ‘Respect’ and ‘Integrity’ extremely well within the lunchtime clubs. It has been great to see each child challenge themselves to learn more and develop whether that be through playing, officiating or coaching. Well done to Harry, Abby, Aaron (Year 6) and Ruaridh, Armando, Lola, Emanuela & Demi (Year 5) who were brilliant lunchtime leaders setting great examples to the younger year groups.
