Bladon Students Take Part in City Basketball Festival

On Tuesday 19th March 2019 six students from Bladon House School attended a basketball festival held at Derby Arena.

The festival was hosted by the Derby City School Sports Partnership and was open to Key stage 2, 3 and 4 students with special educational needs.

The students took part in a range of basketball activities with their peers and then competed in some adapted games against students from other schools.

Whilst taking part in the activities, one student showed excellent leadership and sportsmanship in supporting his peers to stay motivated, engaged and working as a team. Another student found some of the activities a little difficult and self-regulated his behaviour by walking around the magnificent venue and taking his opportunity to look at the cycling track.

The students left the festival feeling proud of having positively interacted with new peers and having used their basketball skills and team work skills to compete in a variety of challenges.

Following the success of this festival we are planning on attending more of these types of events in the future.
