Wednesday 28th September
The year 1 and 2 children enjoyed an afternoon of Basketball at Cantell School. There were 6 schools in total and the children were able to engage with others socially as well as develop their physical attributes through sport.
The main content of the Festival was skills based where children got to try out passing, dribbling and shooting techniques. At the end of the event the children got to participate in some small sided matches against the other schools.
Well done to all the children who represented Bassett Green. You were a credit to our school representing our 4 values Respect, Challenge, Resilience and Teamwork.
Wednesday 9th November, Basketball
After huge success last year Bassett Green A team went straight to business in match 1 defeating Springhill 8-4. Yonis De Rosa led his side to victory scoring 3 baskets whilst Sonny Wint added a fourth.
Bassett Green B had 2 close encounters losing narrowly 2-0 to valentine before a last minute basket by Ahlam Seghir got us a draw in match 2 against Bitterne with the scores tied 2-2.
Bassett Green C had a much tougher night, playing against 2 very good sides from Valentine and Oakwood. Predominantly year 5 students however, we are confident they can learn from these experiences before taking the reigns next season.
Monday 30th January
After what seems a long winter break it was finally time for our Basketball team to get back in action and get some much needed practice ahead of the Hampshire Games. We travelled to Cantell for our annual cluster schools tournament to face teams from Swaythling, Mansbridge and Bevois Town.
Our first game saw our 'A' and 'B' teams play each other in 'The Battle of Bassett'. It was very tight for a while until Yonis De Rosa went on one of his mazy runs to break the deadlock. The 'A' team running out eventual winners 6-0.
The 'B' team went on to draw the next 2 games but struggled in their last 2 finishing the tournament in 5th place.
The 'A' team however continued their fine league form from November and won all 5 of their matches. They only conceded points against one team and in their final game completed a record 16-0 victory! Overall they scored 42 points, only conceding 4!
Well done all involved, looking forward to training before the Hampshire Games.
