The Year 9 students are making the most of the fantastic new basketball hoops we have in our outdoor play space. Our current PE lessons are focusing on improving our basketball shooting technique.
Three shooting spots were set up during a recent lesson. Each class member progressed through the three levels of difficulty. When they were able to shoot successfully from the shortest shooting spot, they then moved further out.
We held a class discussion to share techniques and tips on how we can improve. One of the suggestions was to focus on the netting towards the top of the basketball hoop. This is where we should aim for.
Some fast paced shooting then followed. We ended our lesson with a short basketball game. The Year 9 pupils were asked to use their passing and shooting skills and show what we have learnt over the past few weeks.
