Basketball Tournament

Posted in Sport

We have been learning basketball in school and some of us organised getting a team together to play in an open basketball tournament at the weekend. On the day there were three teams with the majority coming from our school and another local school. We played brilliantly as a team and had an outstanding team spirit. We won the main game and are very proud of ourselves!
