Class 9MA are working on improving their basketball skills as part of our PE learning at the start of the new school term. Each session starts with some gentle stretching exercises. PE teacher Mr Jones has made the pupils aware of the need to warm up ahead of any physical activity.
Our early basketball session have involved the class members feeling comfortable with the ball. Some walking and bouncing routines took place up and down the school gym.
The basketball hoop was then introduced. This was positioned at a medium height so that all the pupils could take part. Two shooting stations were set up. Mr Jones helped out with the technique showing how we can have more control if we use two hands.
A gentle warm down finished off the session. Future basketball learning in Class 9MA will look at passing the ball and how we can play together as a team.
