Year 5/6 Basketball competition
We took two teams – red team and blue team. There were 12 teams in the competition. Everyone played really well. Miss Johnstone coached the red team and Miss Baggs coached the blue team. Luca, on the red team, scored an amazing basket on the last whistle. Despite this, the red team narrowly missed out on making it through their pool. The blue team played amazingly.  They came first in their pool and won their semi-final convincingly, but unfortunately lost in the final by the narrowest of margins to claim an excellent second place.  Paige and Dawda were also awarded exceptional performance certificates by Shoreham Academy.
