Basketball Finals @ the Eagles

Well done to our Year 5 basketball team who reached the finals of the Hoops for Health competition. They played East Gosforth prior to the Eagles match with the Glasgow Giants. The game went to a shoot off in which both teams scored one basket each. It then went to sudden death with David scoring the winning basket. That meant a final at half time in the main game. In a closely fought game, a shoot off was needed again but this time we lost out! Well done to all the children and thanks to the supporters who came along as well!!!

Here are some clips from the matches as well.

Hoops for Health Roadshow

Year 5 and 6 have had a fun afternoon with the team from Newcastle Eagles ‘Hoops for Health’ project. They have been learning about healthy lifestyles and getting to improve their skills as well. Year 5 will get some further chances to have some coaching sessions after half term and the chance to represent the school at a competition early in the new year. Keep practising those skills!
