Wheelchair Basketball

Wheelchair Basketball

This term in PE our year 5/6 students have been celebrating the Olympic Games. They have participated in Team Handball, Rugby, Basketball and Mini Olympic Games activities. More recently our focus has shifted to the Paralympic Games. Students have researched Paralympic sports  and participated in Goalball, Boccia, Seated volleyball and table tennis. Today we had Garry from DSR (disability sport and recreation) visit HT and he explained to us the challenges people in wheelchairs face. After a very informative discussion the students and staff at lunchtime played wheelchair basketball/ handball. It was was a fun activity which everyone thoroughly enjoyed.

At the end of the session however we were all grateful to be able to get up out of our chairs and walk away having had a very good work out for our arms and lots of fun, others are not so lucky.
