Basketball Rallies 2017

As part of our link with Coach Jimmy 'Jumpshot' Smith (who has provided coaching for our KS2 pupils again this year) and the West Bridgford Whizkidz, our Year 5 and 6 pupils have taken part in a series of matches and rallies with a range of other schools. Across the year our teams have attended rallies at Carnarvon in Bingham, Belton Lane in Grantham, Holy Trinity in Newark and Candleby Lane in Cotgrave. Each team that we have taken has performed exceptionally well, displaying great team work and individual skill against some tough opposition.
