Year 8 Demonstrate Basketball Skills in Match Situation

Basketball skills are continuing to be the current focus for Year 8 as part of their PE learning. Three core skills were focussed on during a recent lesson:

Shooting skills, movement and passing, and losing your marker. The pupils were timed for a minute on each exercise.

Shooting skills involved taking a shot from different angles. Movement and passing was assessed making chest passes with a partner. We then tried to lose our partner for the final activity.

These techniques were all then put into practise during a game situation. Each pupil was asked at the end of the session what are their personal strengths, how can they improve and what happens to your heart when you exercise.
