This half term, we are focusing on basketball. Today we have learnt different types of passing: chest pass and bounce pass (these are two common types of pass). When practicing our passing, we thought about different ways we can travel. Passing is important to practice in basketball as it helps to score easy points. Practicing different types of passing also helped to develop our team working and communication skills.
Today in P.E we have been learning about ball control. Our focus today was to get past defenders, we learnt how to shield a ball in order to get past the defenders and score. We also learnt how to pass a ball into space and run around the defender to shoot.
Today we have had our last ever swimming session for Year 5. We have enjoyed going swimming and have learnt a lot. Some of us have really developed our swimming skills and developed our confidence in the water.
Today we had a sports tournament , where we did throwing and high jump. One of the top scores for throwing was 21.8 metres. We enjoyed our games and played well. We all worked well in our teams and all each had ago at the high jump. Year 6 won overall.
