This afternoon, we played basketball inside. We used all our knowledge about dribbling the ball and passing to try and beat the other team. One thing we need to remember is to not double dribble!

In P.E. we are learning about invasion games. Today we were practising our basketball techniques. We started by dribbling the ball. We needed to make sure we kept our eye on the ball so that we didn’t lose control. Next, we played a game where we had to try and bounce the ball past the person in the middle. They had to try and work out which direction the ball was going to go.
