On a sunny fresh lovely morning Room 5 went to the courts for Basketball. I was very excited, our coach was called  Vinny he looked very kind and cool. First he said “run around the whole court”. After running around the whole court we were panting. Vinny told us to get a ball so we did what he said. He told us how to Pivot, we faced the side of the hall then we turned with one leg to the side of the church.I liked doing Pivots. Next we played a game called Red Light Green Light. We run around half a court and when Vinny says “Red light” we all freeze and when he says “Green light” we run.We learned how to protect our ball when someone is going to get it. We hold the ball and place it next to our hips, it was really a lot of fun. We had a challenge between girls vs boys, we had to run along the line and run straight to the circle where the balls were and we had to grab a ball and score at the hoop.The boys won, it was really fun at Basketball. Soon it was time for Room 3 to come to the court. We all put our hands together and shouted “BASKETBALL!”.

  1. Hi Stanley,
    I like the way you used describing words in your writing. You have done a fantastic job at building a picture in my head around the whole basketball experience. My class also likes playing Red Light, Green Light. How long did it take you to complete this well structured piece of writing?

    Keep up the great writing,
