Year 8 have been working on improving their basketball skills as part of our PE lessons for the summer term. Three particular passes have formed part of our coaching: the chest pass, the bounce pass and the lob. The pupils have been learning how to make a decision when to use each pass during a full on basketball game situation.
Various workstations were set up to help Year 8 improve their skills. They included being able to anticipate when our partner was going to pass the ball, and also to find some space so that we could receive an accurate pass.
With these skills mastered, Year 8 then played a short basketball game. You can watch a short video of our basketball coaching above.
