Mini Basketball Tournament

Afterschool today, 10 lovely year 6s went to Burford Primary School to partake in a mini basketball tournament. The children were split into two mixed teams of 5 and each team took it in turns to play Burford Primary School and Gotham Primary School. 

The children were fantastic at working together, finding space and showing their sportsmanship. This was the first basketball competition of the year and the first time these players had worked together. Despite it being their first time, they supported each other with the more experienced basketball players supporting the new members. The 'OBS Way' was definitely clear for all to see and I was proud to take such well behaved, well mannered and determined athletes to the tournament. Although scores were not tracked, OBS won most of the games that they were a part of and scored many many points- great job!

I am excited to see how they get on in the formal basketball league.
